Brazil health officials saw an additional 34,918 cases Tuesday, putting the country total to 923,189, although experts say the true number is likely higher due to testing volumes. The total number of patients recovered now stands at 441,729 (47.8% of the total confirmed cases) and the death toll has risen to 45,241.
Brazil could surpass the US in both coronavirus infections and deaths by the end of July, according to the University of Washington tracking model.
Since the beginning of the year, the Ministry of Health has sent R $ 48.8 billion to states and municipalities to finance public health actions and services, of which R $ 9.5 billion is dedicated exclusively to fighting the coronavirus. 11.3 million units of medication have also been purchased and distributed to assist in the treatment of coronavirus, 115.2 million EPIS, 10.6 million diagnostic tests for COVID-19 and 79.9 million doses of the vaccine against flu, which helps to reduce cases of influenza and other respiratory syndromes in the middle of coronavirus cases.
