According to the data of the Brazilian Ministry of Health, 839 more people died in the last 24 hours in the country. The number of deaths from Covid-19 increased to 580 thousand 413.
With the detection of 24 thousand 589 new cases in the last 24 hours in the country, the total number of cases increased to 20 million 776 thousand 870.
The number of those who recovered increased to 19 million 735 thousand 447.
With a population of more than 210 million, Brazil is the second country with the highest number of deaths from Covid-19 in the world, after the USA, and the third country with the highest number of cases.
The state of Sao Paulo, the commercial center of Brazil, stands out as the region most affected by the epidemic with 4 million 262 thousand 684 cases and 145 thousand 836 deaths.
Although at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine has been administered to more than 150 million people in the country, the ups and downs in the number of cases and deaths continue.
Various circles in Brazil think that the epidemic is poorly managed, and that the culprit is President Jair Bolsonaro.
Bolsonaro was frequently criticized for his stance that belittles Covid-19 and criticizes the measures taken against the epidemic.
The Brazilian Senate established a commission on April 27 to investigate the attitude of the Bolsonaro government, to which 4 health ministers changed during the epidemic period, and whether it acted negligently, and many state officials, especially former health ministers, gave testimony at this commission.
