With 1,090 New Deaths, Brazil Surpasses 117,000 Covid-19 Deaths

Press consortium also points out 47,828 cases, bringing the total to 3.7 million

There were 1,090 new Covid-19 deaths and 47,828 cases in Brazil this Wednesday (26). The latest data brings the total number of deaths to 117,756 and that of infections to 3,722,004.

In addition to the consortium's daily data, Folha also shows the so-called moving average. 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 938, which is stable even though it is high.

The Midwest remains the only region with an increase in the moving average of deaths compared to the average of 14 days ago. The South shows a reduction, and the other regions are stable, which does not mean that the situation is calm.

Amapá, Bahia, Goiás, Rio de Janeiro, Rondônia, and Tocantins show an increase in the moving average of deaths, also compared to 14 days ago.

Brazil has a rate of about 56.2 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 54.9 and 62.5 deaths for every 100 thousand inhabitants, respectively.
