State and municipal health departments registered 56,697 new cases of covid-19 in 24 hours in Brazil. According to the organs, 239 deaths due to complications associated with the disease were also confirmed in the same period.
The data are in the Ministry of Health update released this Monday (19), with the exception of information from Tocantins, which was not disclosed.
With the new information, the total number of people infected by the new coronavirus during the pandemic adds up to 36,001,760.
The number of cases in follow-up of covid-19 stands at 645,525. The term is given to designate cases notified in the last 14 days that were not discharged and did not result in death.
With today’s numbers, the total number of deaths has reached 692,280 since the beginning of the pandemic. There are still 3,193 deaths under investigation. The occurrences involve cases in which the patient died, but the investigation of whether the cause was covid-19 still requires additional tests and procedures.
So far, 34,663,955 people have recovered from covid-19. The number corresponds to 96.3% of those infected since the beginning of the pandemic.
On Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, the number recorded daily tends to be smaller due to the difficulty of feeding the databases by the municipal and state health departments. On Tuesdays, the amount is generally higher due to the update of cases accumulated over the weekends.
According to the balance of the Ministry of Health, at the top of the ranking of states with the most deaths from covid-19 recorded so far are São Paulo (176,982), Rio de Janeiro (76,322), Minas Gerais (64,238), Paraná (45,643) and Rio Grande do Sul (41,392).
The states with the fewest deaths resulting from the pandemic are Acre (2,035), Amapá (2,165), Roraima (2,178), Tocantins (4,208) and Sergipe (6,479).
