Over 11.23 million recoveries have been reported so far.

With a population of more than 213 million, Brazil is the country most affected by the pandemic after the US.

The country has seen difficult days in recent weeks because of occupancies in intensive care units and the spread of a more contagious variant that is thought to have originated in Amazonas state.

The average daily death toll in the past week was about 2,900 and the number of cases was more than 75,000.
