The data comes from an unprecedented collaboration between Folha, O Estado de S. Paulo, Extra, O Globo, G1 and UOL to gather and disclose the numbers related to the pandemic of the new coronavirus.

In addition to the consortium's daily data, Folha also shows the so-called moving average. The statistical resource seeks to give a better view of the evolution of the disease, as it attenuates isolated numbers that deviate from the pattern. The moving average is calculated by adding the result of the last seven days, dividing by seven.
