Surprising Impacts And Perceptions Of COVID-19 In Brazil

The impact of COVID-19 on Brazil is immense, second only to the United States in terms of number of cases and deaths. It is the epicenter of the outbreak in Latin America with a recorded 3.9 million cases and 122,596 deaths at the beginning of September. In Brazil, half the population lives on less than $180 (USD) a month and, as with most countries in the world, low-income residents have been hardest hit by the pandemic and subsequent economic shutdown.

Despite the skyrocketing number of cases, Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, has underplayed the seriousness of the disease since the beginning of the pandemic. This has included actively defying public health recommendations for social distancing and mask wearing, promoting unproven cures such as hydroxychloroquine, referring to coronavirus as nothing more than a “little flu,” and firing two different public health ministers over the past six months.

Given the country’s large number of cases and unique response from government leadership, Premise was interested in finding out sentiments of Brazilian contributors surrounding the coronavirus. We polled contributors in May and again in August to see if opinions changed over time, receiving a total of 1,839 survey responses. The responses gave us a range of insights on attitudes surrounding the economic impact, information and messaging, and the government’s pandemic response.

How Mask-Wearing Has Changed in America: A Visual Journey of Increasing Mask Use

While in many parts of the country people are resuming more out-of-home activity, mobility is still lower than pre-pandemic numbers, but there has been an increase over the last few months based on data in the Institute for Health Metric and Evaluation’s (IHME) August 21 update.

Over the past few months, data have shown changing habits across the country in regard to mask usage. Many states and government agencies have been encouraging mask-wearing as a way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Currently, 36 states (including D.C. and Puerto Rico) have some form of mask mandate.

IHME stated in their recent update from August 21 that if mask-wearing in public increases to 95%, more than 69,000 lives could be saved. While much is still unknown about this virus, it seems that more Americans are heeding warnings to wear masks as cases continue to grow across the country.

Get Ahead of the Virus

We can deliver COVID-19 global insights to you in hours, not weeks.

Our company has experience delivering information on a range of topics, including disease monitoring and control. In Colombia, Premise helped to digitize vector control for the Zika virus in Santa Marta, Cucuta and Cali. Working alongside local health authorities Premise’s crowdsourced network identified and monitored mosquito breeding sites across the three cities, as well as reported on cases of Zika. Through the data collection process, city officials were better able to deploy resources to mitigate breeding sites and develop educational campaigns.
