Brazil Has 721 New Deaths from Covid-19 in 24 Hours

Country has accumulated more than 101 thousand deaths and 3 million infected

Brazil recorded 721 deaths from Covid-19 infections and 20,730 new cases on Monday (10). The country accumulated 101,857 deaths and more than 3 million infected in the pandemic of the new coronavirus.

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.

According to the data collected until 8 pm, the average number of deaths in the last seven days is 1,022, maintaining a position of stability in the data, although with high numbers.

Brazil has a rate of about 48 deaths per 100 thousand inhabitants. The United States, which has the highest absolute number of deaths, and the United Kingdom, both ahead of Brazil in the pandemic (that is, they started to suffer from the problem before), have 49.7 and 70.2 deaths for every 100 thousand inhabitants, respectively.
