Brazil recorded 1,215 deaths from Covid-19 and 46,959 cases of the disease, this Tuesday (25). The country reached 116,666 deaths and 3,674,176 infections with the novel coronavirus since the beginning of the pandemic.
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 disease's evolution, 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 980, maintaining a position of stability in the data, although with high numbers.
Brazil has a rate of around 55.7 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 54.6 and 62.5 deaths for every 100 thousand inhabitants, respectively.
Mexico, which surpassed the UK in death toll, has 48.2 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants. Recently, India, with 58,390 deaths, also passed the UK in death toll.
In Argentina, where the pandemic landed nine days later than in Brazil and which followed a much stricter quarantine, the rate is 16.6 deaths per 100 thousand inhabitants.
