Brazil Has 572 Deaths and 18,043 Cases of Covid-19 in 24 Hours

Country registers stabilization in the moving average of deaths in the pandemic

Brazil recorded 572 deaths due to the new coronavirus pandemic and 18,043 new cases of the disease on Monday (3). The country has 94,702 deaths and 2,751,665 infected with Covid-19.

The data comes from an unprecedented collaboration between Folha, UOL, O Estado de S. Paulo, Extra, O Globo, and G1 to gather and disclose the numbers related to the pandemic of the new coronavirus. The information is collected directly from the state Health Departments. The balance is closed daily at 8 pm.

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.

Brazil had a moving average of 995 daily deaths, less than that recorded in the weeks of July.
