Brazil Passes 132 Thousand Covid-19 Deaths with A Record of 454 New Deaths

19,392 cases of the disease have also been documented; total is 4.3 million infected, shows press consortium

Brazil recorded 454 deaths from Covid-19 and 19,392 new cases of the disease on Monday (14). As a result, the country reached 132,117 deaths from Sars-CoV-2 and 4,349,544 infected by the new coronavirus.

The number of deaths per 100 thousand inhabitants in Brazil (63.1) has already exceeded that of the United Kingdom (62.8) and should soon pass the rate in Spain (63.8), due to the different moments of the pandemic in the countries. Thus, Brazil has one of the highest death rates per 100 thousand inhabitants in the world.

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 data collected until 8 pm, the average number of deaths in the last seven days is 731, which represents a drop in data compared to previous weeks. The average, however, is still at high levels.
