Brazil Has 1,136 Covid-19 Deaths and Reaches 128 thousand Deaths

With 34,208 new cases, country approaches 4.2 million infections, shows press consortium

Brazil recorded Covid-19 1,136 deaths and 34,208 new cases this Wednesday (9). Thus, the country has recorded 128,653 deaths from the disease and 4,199,332 infections 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 mitigates isolated numbers that deviate from the pattern. The moving average is calculated by adding the result of the last seven days, dividing by seven.
