The last time Brazil recorded a seven-day average of fewer than 1,000 COVID deaths at the beginning of the cruel second wave was in January.
The seven-day average coronavirus-related deaths in Brazil fell below 1,000 for the first time since January, when the South American country was suffering from a brutal second wave of pandemics.
According to data from Johns Hopkins University, since the beginning of the crisis, the country has registered more than 19.8 million COVID-19 cases and more than 555,400 deaths, which is the second highest death toll in the world after the United States.
According to data from the Brazilian Ministry of Health, there were 910 new deaths in the past 24 hours, and an average of 989 deaths per day in Brazil in the past week. The last time this number was below 1,000 was on January 20, when it was 981.
Although COVID-19 death and infection rates have declined in recent weeks, and vaccination rates have increased, health experts have warned that new surges may be occurring due to the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant.
At the same time, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is a coronavirus skeptic. He continues to downplay the severity of COVID-19. He is facing increasing pressure and needs to explain him How to deal with crises.
According to a recent public opinion survey, thousands of people protested in cities across the country this month demanding the impeachment of the far-right leader-a move that was supported by the majority of Brazilians.
In April of this year, a Senate committee investigated how Bolsonaro responded to the coronavirus, including whether his government politicized the pandemic and whether he was negligent in purchasing the COVID-19 vaccine.
Since then, Bolsonaro has been accused of failing to take action on alleged violations of purchasing vaccines from India. He also faces charges that he participated in a plan to rob his assistants’ wages while serving as a federal member.
At the same time, after starting to roll out the coronavirus vaccine slowly and chaotically, Brazil has accelerated its vaccination rate, with more than 1 million vaccination times a day since June.
To date, more than 100 million people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 40 million people are considered fully vaccinated.
President Jair Bolsonaro is facing increasing pressure over the coronavirus crisis and suspected corruption and vaccine deals.
President Jair Bolsonaro is under pressure to take responsibility for his government’s coronavirus policy and corruption allegations.
The Senate’s investigation into the government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic has put pressure on far-right President Jair Bolsonaro.
