Brazil recorded 922 deaths from Covid-19 and 40,431 cases of the disease this Thursday (10). With this, the country has 129,575 deaths and 4,239,763 people who have caught 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.
The average number of deaths in the last seven days is 692, which maintains a position of stability in the data, although with high numbers.
Brazil has a rate of about 61.9 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 58.7 and 62.7 deaths for every 100 thousand inhabitants, respectively.
Last week, Brazil exceeded Italy's death rate per 100,000 inhabitants (58.9).
