Update of October 16, 2021

Given the very clear decrease in the pandemic in Brazil for 5 months, this page created in June 2020 and updated every Saturday will now be updated once every 2 Saturdays (next update on Saturday, October 30)

Statistics and news:

Brazil is the second country after the United States to have suffered the most in absolute terms from Covid 19 with 21,63 million people infected and 602,727 dead on October 15 2021. On average day over the last week, the number of infected is 10,861 (-34% over the last 14 days) and deaths of 319 (-36%) with 14,476 infected and 526 deaths in the last 24 hours. These very good figures show continued sanitary improvement in Brazil with the average day of new contaminants at the lowest since May 15, 2020 and that of deaths from Covid since October 25, 2020. For the record and at worst, the first average was at 77,295 on June 23, 2021 and the second average at 3,125 on April 12, 2021. The continued vaccination of the population is to be attributed to this great improvement.

So as of yesterday, more than 102.5 million Brazilians are fully immunized, or more than 48% of the population. On October 15, 150,944,543 people (70.76% of the population) received a first vaccination in Brazil and 102,788,608 (48.19%) a second. A total of 257,349,787 (counting the 3rd doses) doses were applied to the population. For information, the city of Rio de Janeiro reached this week the level of 75% of its adult population with the complete vaccination schedule.

Since September 15 in Rio de Janeiro, the health pass is required at the entrance of public places such as tourist places, stadiums, sports halls, cinemas, museums, theaters etc … Restaurants, bars and shopping centers are not concerned. For foreigners, an international health pass will be accepted.

New Year’s Eve with 11 places scattered throughout Rio with shows and fireworks will take place at the end of the year as well as the Carnival in February 2022

The Conscious Tourism’s Charter

The city of Rio de Janeiro with the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism launched in June 2020 a certification program for travel agencies and guides that respect a protocol related to COVID 19 to ensure the health safety of tourists in Brazil.

Good Guide In Rio joined this program and received the “TURISMO CONSCIENTE” certification on June 28 which commits to respecting the following rules:

  • Use of masks by our guides and drivers when they are in contact with our customers, the latter being encouraged to wear them without obligatory nature except in closed environments (cars and vans, closed rooms, elevators etc …). Customers must have their own face mask.
  • Respect for barrier gestures.
  • Respect for social distancing, as far as possible, during guided tours.
  • Commitment to use hydro-alcoholic gel to clean hands and make gel available to customers.
  • Complete sanitation of vehicles before each visit.
  • Health vigilance for guides and drivers with regular PCR tests. Those with symptoms like fever or cough will be quarantined. The guide reserves the right to exclude any visitor showing these symptoms and invite them to return to their hotel in order to protect the group from a risk of possible contamination.
  • Communicate good health practices to customers and monitor compliance with these practices during visits to places that have specifically set up a health protocol (Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Museums, Churches, etc.)
