Alexandre de Moraes, Brazil's Supreme Court justice, ruled the Health Ministry must revert to releasing the full data set as it used to do.

During the weekend, the Brazilian Health Ministry abruptly removed troves of detailed Covid-19 data and said it would no longer publish cumulative totals. Last week it pushed back the release of the numbers late into the evening and past "Jornal Nacional", Brazil's main news program.
