Two weeks after the cyber attack on the data collection and storage systems on the covid that the Ministry of Health suffered on December 10, the South American giant continues to record half cases of deaths and infections by the virus.

According to Conass, three of the 27 states in the country did not provide data this Friday due to obstacles to registration in the system.

Despite the current difficulties, the numbers accumulated in recent weeks show that the pandemic continues to ease rapidly in Brazil and that the current averages are at those recorded in April of last year, when the health crisis was beginning in the country.

The average of deaths and infections in the last seven days this Friday stood at 113 deaths and 3,102 positives, the lowest averages since April 2020.

The current improvement is attributed to the advancement of the immunization campaign, since Brazil already has about 67% of its 213 million inhabitants with the complete vaccination scheme.
