According to AP News it was said that the confirmed people reached 16 in total.
According to the National Latin-American Indian Fund, tribes that had been isolated from the civilization were confirmed to be about 100 in Brazil. In the past their contact with the outside had caused the spread of infectious disease, now they were being investigated without direct contact.

It seems that Brazil is doing a good job in protecting its indigenous people.
