A judge of the Supreme Federal Court had ordered this measure to be carried out in July 2020 due to the spread of the virus throughout the world, however it was not until this date that said Commission was created.

The decree published this Tuesday asserts that the committee will be in charge of adopting measures for the protection of indigenous peoples, especially the 115 that are isolated in their communities.

According to data provided by the Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil, since the beginning of the pandemic, about 1,250 people have perished from the disease and more than 63,000 cases have been identified.

Brazil has accumulated more than 22 million infections since the start of the pandemic and at least 618,000 people have died as a result of Covid-19.
