So far, more than 90% of Brazilians authorized to receive the COVID-19 emergency aid have used the money

Approximately 93% of the more than 50 million people who were eligible to receive the BRL 600 emergency aid have already moved the amounts credited to them. Of this total, 20,02 million didn’t have a bank account–8,22 million of them preferred to transfer the amount to a checking account belonging to a friend or relative, and 6,78 million withdrew the money, making huge queues to do so in the past few weeks.

According to the state-owned bank responsible for the deposits, Caixa Econômica Federal, in the coming week a new round of emergency aid deposits will be announced.
