Brazil records 114 deaths and 15,800 cases in 24 hours

State and municipal health departments recorded 15,842 new cases of covid-19 in 24 hours across the country. According to the bodies, 114 deaths from complications associated with the disease were also confirmed from yesterday to today.

The data are in the update of the Ministry of Health, released this Wednesday (31), with the exception of the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, which did not send the information. With the new information, the total number of people infected by the new coronavirus during a pandemic already adds up to 34,429,853.

The number of cases being monitored for covid-19 stands at 264,908. The term is given to designate cases reported 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 683,965 since the beginning of the pandemic. There are still 3,172 deaths under investigation. The occurrences involve cases in which the patient died, but the investigation if the cause was covid-19 still requires additional tests and procedures.

So far, 33,480,980 people have recovered from Covid-19. The number corresponds to just over 97% of those infected since the beginning of the pandemic.


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 (174,159), Rio de Janeiro (75,438), Minas Gerais (63,557), Paraná (45,117) and Rio Grande do Sul (40,864).

The states with the fewest deaths resulting from the pandemic are Acre (2,027), Amapá (2,158), Roraima (2,172), Tocantins (4,196) and Sergipe (6,430).


Until this Wednesday, the vaccinometer of the Ministry of Health indicated that 476,305,517 doses of vaccines against covid-19 had been applied in the country, since the beginning of the immunization campaign. The data is the same as the previous day and had not been updated until the publication of this article. Of these total vaccine applications, 179.1 million are first dose, 160.3 million are second dose and 4.9 million are single dose. The booster dose was given to more than 106.4 million people and the second extra dose or fourth dose to just over 20.4 million. The panel also records 4.8 million doses as “additional”, which are those applied to those who had received Janssen’s immunizer, a single dose.
