There were also 10,466 new cases of coronaviruses, with the total number of infections in the country advancing to 20,752,281, added the folder.
In absolute terms, Brazil is the second country with the highest number of deaths from the disease, behind only the United States, and the third in case count, below the USA and India.
The country, however, has seen a reduction in pandemic numbers in recent weeks as it advances in its vaccination campaign against Covid-19.

The federal government still reports 479,809 Covid-19 patients under follow-up.
