In Brazil, since the beginning of 2021, the number of deaths due to infection with coronavirus infection has exceeded the number of deaths from COVID-19 in all of 2020. On Monday, April 26, CNN reports with reference to the country’s Ministry of Health.

From January 1 to April 25, 195,848 deaths from the coronavirus were recorded in Brazil, the NSN specifies. This exceeds the number of 194,949 deaths recorded in the country from March to December 31, 2020.

In March of this year, 66,573 people died from COVID-19 in Brazil, and 69,282 confirmed deaths from coronavirus were recorded in April.

It is noted that the increase in mortality in the country is associated with the identification of new strains of coronavirus, the collapse of the healthcare system, the lack of restrictive measures to contain the spread of the disease, as well as the slow pace of vaccination.

Since the start of the pandemic in Brazil, 14.3 million cases of COVID-19 have been identified, 390,797 infected have died. In terms of the number of infected, the country ranks third in the world after the United States and India. In terms of the number of deaths, it is second only to the United States.

Earlier on Monday, it was reported that the number of detected cases of COVID-19 in the world as of 9 am on April 26 was 147,194,897.

The anti-leader is the United States, where the number of infected has reached 32,077,075, and the death toll from the consequences of COVID-19 has reached 3,106,435 people. Next are India with 17 313 163 cases, where an anti-record was reached on April 24, and Brazil, where the number of cases was 14 340 787 people.
