Chief Justice of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court decrees official mourning for 100,000 deaths by Covid-19

Today, Brazil mourns over the 100,000 deaths due to Covid-19. We are a grieving nation, suffering for the loss of relatives, friends and people from our social coexistence.

We have never experienced a tragedy of this magnitude in our country. There are 100,000 people who had a name, a profession, projects and dreams. One hundred thousand lives that certainly left their mark on the world and on the lives of other people. They are daughters and sons who will no longer be with their parents on tomorrow's special day. They are fathers who will have nothing to celebrate this Sunday.

On behalf of the Judiciary and the Federal Supreme Court, I express our feelings of deep sadness and solidarity with the families and friends of each of the 100,000 victims. In solidarity with the pain of countless Brazilians and in honor of each one of the 100 thousand victims, the Federal Supreme Court decrees a three-day official mourning.

The National Judiciary and the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) will continue to stand ready to serve Brazilians in their demands for justice, even more essential at this time of social fragility. We will follow tirelessly in protecting the most vulnerable and unassisted and in ensuring the fundamental rights of citizens, promoting justice and social peace.

Justice Dias Toffoli
Chief Justice of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court and head of the National Council of Justice
