The use of masks ceased to be mandatory last August, but has been imposed again due to “current epidemiological data, which indicate an increase in the number of covid-19 cases in the Brazilian population”, according to a statement from the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) published on Tuesday night.

Brazil has been one of the countries hardest hit by the pandemic in the world, accumulating almost 690,000 deaths and more than 35 million infections so far, and in recent weeks it has registered a strong rebound in infections.

According to the National Council of Health Secretaries (Conass), in the first twenty days of November the number of infections exceeded 95,000, with an increase of 292% compared to the previous month.

The number of deaths, however, has not increased at the same rate, but has remained at an average of 45 per day in the last two weeks.

The increase in cases has been attributed by scientific institutions to a relaxation of vaccination in recent months.

President Jair Bolsonaro, a denier of the seriousness of the pandemic, boasts of not having been vaccinated and has been one of the main voices in Brazil against immunization.

According to official data, of the 213 million Brazilians, so far only 49.2% have the full vaccination schedule.
