The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have spread to Brazil on 25 February 2020, after a 61-year-old man from São Paulo who had returned from Lombardy, Italy tested positive for the virus. Since then, as of 22 March 2020, 1,546 cases were confirmed in the country – 459 of them in the state of São Paulo —, causing 25 deaths. Local transmission has been reported in at least seven states, and the pandemic has triggered a variety of responses from federal, state and local governments, while also impacting politics, education and the economy.
