Brazil has reported a 24-hour tally of COVID-19 deaths exceeding 4,000 for the first time, becoming the third nation to go above that daily threshold. Only the U.S. and Peru have had daily death tolls higher than 4,000.
SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazil reported a 24-hour tally of COVID-19 deaths exceeding 4,000 for the first time Tuesday, becoming the third nation to go above that daily threshold.Many governors, mayors and judges are reopening parts of the economy despite lingering chaos in overcrowded hospitals and a collapsed health system in several parts of the country.
Brazil’s health ministry said 4,195 deaths were counted in the previous 24 hours, with the nation’s pandemic toll quickly approaching 340,000, the second highest in the world. Only the U.S. and Peru have had daily death tolls higher than 4,000.ADVERTISEMENT
Sao Paulo state, Brazil’s most populous with 46 million residents, registered almost 1,400 deaths in the latest count. Health officials said the figure was partly due to the Easter holiday, which delayed the count.Local authorities nationwide argue that numbers of cases and hospitalizations are trending downward after a week of a partial shutdown. headtopics.com
Miguel Lago, executive director of Brazil’s Institute for Health Policy Studies, which advises public health officials, said reopening is a mistake that he fears will bring even higher death numbers, though he thinks it unlikely to be reversed.“The fact is the anti-lockdown narrative of President Jair Bolsonaro has won,” Lago told The Associated Press. “Mayors and governors are politically prohibited from beefing up social distancing policies because they know supporters of the president, including business leaders, will sabotage it.”
Bolsonaro, who has long downplayed the risks of the coronavirus, remains fully against lockdowns as damaging to the economy.COVID-19 patients are using more than 90% of beds in intensive care unit in most Brazilian states, though figures have been stable since the past week. Still, hundreds are dying as they wait for care and basic supplies such as oxygen and sedatives are running out in several states.
Less than 3% of Brazil’s 210 million people have received both doses of coronavirus vaccines, according to Our World in Data, an online research site.Over the weekend, justices of Brazil’s Supreme Court started a tug of war about the reopening of religious buildings, which were closed by many local authorities despite a federal government decision to label them as part of essential services.
Some churches welcomed their faithful on Easter Sunday, but others were stopped by mayors and governors. Their reopening will be settled at the high court Wednesday, but some local councils, such as Belo Horizonte, voted Tuesday to keep religious buildings open. headtopics.com
ADVERTISEMENTAlso on Tuesday a Rio de Janeiro judge allowed schools to reopen as Mayor Eduardo Paes wanted. Hours later, the mayors of Campinas and Sorocaba, two of the most populous cities in Sao Paulo state, agreed to reopen business with a drive-thru purchase system after a 10-day halt.
Professional soccer executives in Sao Paulo said they expect to play games this week after a 15-day interruption, promising local prosecutors they will follow stricter health protocols. Read more: The Associated Press »

If you really want to save Brazil, sprinkle water in city area daily by 8-10 pm for a week. This will help you. Covid is because of interstellar space radiation and declines when any planet is positioned on the back side of earth. Very sad . The incompetence of the government Their total deaths still amount to 0.00% of the population. Brazil is a very large country with well over 200,000,000 people.
harbhajan_singh Sysy safe bro, follow very important dista cing rules especially while trsining and with fans. Even in hotels too. Truly hate to see this happening Mexico's death rate is very high to, but given the drugs are so important to the world and drug wars, their news is less important globally.Shady world.
Keep in mind what good friends Trump is with this leader. We would be worse off than Brazil if Trump were still in office. Great! they could use a little help thinning out the population. Bolsonaro must be proud! Fear fear fear bravo, wannabe dictator, his 'gripezinha' is killing and he is enjoying. COVID is still rampaging across the world. The vaccine can't come to Brazil soon enough.
Couldn’t be from the Vax? Nah. Holy shit it's the flu. and it's not a big deal. What verifiable evidence can you provide that your claims are true and correct? aihsan_goker Whoa they are really going for heard immunity via the strong and lucky will survive Brazil president... Trump the second, new and improved!
Nomi4dems Maybe “let everyone get infected and have nature sort it out” wasn’t the best strategy after all... 4000 people died in 24 hour? this is intentional, corporations that want to rape the land, kill the people for greed Woah Like my workmate says 'It's just a cold'... They don’t have masks? The Covidmonster …🤬👹😱😱😱🤢🤢🤢💀💀💀⚰️⚰️⚰️💥💥💥
The COVIDKILLER - a sociopath elected President of Brazil by cowards who gave up freedoms &dignity for the delusion of the Big Man (toxic patriarchy) who promises to protect them & make them rich- the cost is degraded humanity &a multitude suffering excruciating illness&deaths FAkrav5 I’m dang sure that that number is not true, probably higher.
wow I think there is a serious problem how agencies define a covid death. I bet that from deaths from just covid alone are not material. I still don't take it seriously. Never will. how many are fat as hell? Oh no Okay, so they’re doing it the other nature way: Survival of the fittest. Peru never reached those numbers. Please rectify this tweet. Peru was one of the first South American countries that went on lockdown as soon as the first case was detected, followed by strict quarantine protocols. Original source must contain a typo.
Ms_Schif You mentioned something about Brazil...😬 Britain be like. Free return flights to Brazil for everyone $ENZC Hold tight BraZil, drgauravchandra and enzolytics will be there soon! Glenn Greenwald approves. WE SEE THROUGH YOUR PROPAGANDA...!!!!!!! NeverOneWorldGovernment !!!!! n00bmast3rr mujhe nhi lagta zada saal zinda rahege insan yaha😷😷😷
'Tally'? It sounds like a James Caan movie. You should be ashamed of such irresponsible journalism. So they all died on the same day? 🤔 BrazilinUSA Enzolytics has targeted the Energing Variant P1 😔💔 That's amazing counting on your part in 24 hours! Where were you all during the election?!DonaldJTrumpJr DanScavino
Just so sad so many people have died across the world😔. US, Peru, Brazil... And people say communism works... US had that with like 6 times the population! This is an extreme case of false equivalence. The death rate is insane down there. Peru 🇵🇪 cjg57 jatkat45 How many from serrona To everyone on this thread carrying water for Bolsanero STOP IT! He is a dangerous and demented sadist murderer who was handed the perfect weapon to carry out his macabre plan of killing 30,000 Brazilian. He is unfit for office and should be jailed for crimes against humanity.
What if I was to tell you covid is a hoax Is there an international criminal court for Brazils despot, Jair Bolsonaro, who has murdered hundreds of thousands of Brazilian people? He must be brought to justice for his BrazilianGenocide. The US did 4K deaths per day through much of this past winter. Shows what this virus does to a country run by thug fascist denial leadership
Their president needs arresting I have a suggestion: the best way to stop covid 19 is to ban twitter!! This is what happens when Bolsonaro has been in denial from the outset, his negligence has resulted in a shocking death toll including many members of the indigenous tribes. He is not worthy of his position.
How can you type this with a straight face? The only metric that can be meaningfully compared is deaths per million. Shame on you! Why is US not sending vaccines? According to Biden we have a surplus as well as a completely untouched stockpile of AZ. Yikes It's sad that Brazil is still pretty high with cases
Dear god, praying for them. That brazillian variant sounds lethal 4000 Deaths in a DAY!!! COVID19 Brazil Coming to a country near you. Even across the seas I am with those who want Bolsonaro out! He's a dangerous man to the world! Economically, Socially and Environmentally, too dangerous. 😥 But what about flu season
damn My brother was unable to leave Brazil and died there. This is a crime against humanity 🤬 Welcome to the real world President Bolosanro or whatever sacrificed his own people cos of his own stupidity 😪 and how many flu deaths were reported on this same day? Have admitted anyway Sad and stupid Huh? Peru?!
Brazil’s failure to shut down has done more harm to the economy than good. The insane death tolls are a result of policy failure. Omg this is heartbreaking 🙏😷🙏 That's rough. They messed up. Perú has never had those deaths, dont spread misinformation What is the daily death toll in the US nowadays? Who’s 1?
To make this go away: 1. N95 or KF94 in public 2. Open 🪟 3. Prop 🚪 (if own a shop) 4. Merv13/Hepa 5. 40-60% humidity 6. CO2 sensors: aim 600 ppm 7. JAB Sources in my timeline Peru has never had 4000 deaths per day. Please rectify. Deaths in Brazil today was almost equal to the sum of 10 next coutries.
Even in the deepest thralls of Trump's purposeful insanity the US had the organs of a democratic state which to counter and an election which saw the return of sane government, Brazil has no such hope, and they're just beginning to get ramped up. FACT: Brazil will be in a pandemic for 10-15 years which means most of the rest of the world, including the US, will also be in a pandemic for 10-15 years.
Guess how many SpeakerPelosi has killed? 553,136 Americans dead since she's been Speaker of the House! Perú never Why are these countries greater ? Out Bolsonaro! Also China except they don't share their stats, allow international scrutiny from investigators, nor care about their population Bolsonaro should be in prison for what he’s done to the Brazilian people..
Why was Trump banned? That's true. Biggest problem is the population density. Tragic ⬇️⬇️⬇️
