The situation in Brazil regarding the control of the pandemic of COVID-19 has been brought to another level when the Ministry of Health decided to change the methodology of the statistics shown in the main website of the government. The changes on the interface of the website and the methodology to count only deaths that were caused by COVID-19 and confirmed on the same day made us generate a model to verify what is the users’ perception of the deaths if these two actions were to be kept from now on. The results were shown on Brazilian Huffpost media, and also shared more than 700 times on Twitter by me and Átila Iamarindo, PhD in Biology and great science communicator in Brazil.
