Brazil registered 809 Covid 19 deaths and 35,252 cases of the disease, this Tuesday (22). The country thus reaches 138,159 deaths and 4,595,335 people infected since the beginning of the pandemic.
Brazil has already surpassed the USA, United Kingdom, Italy, and France and is on the same level as Spain in deaths per 100 thousand inhabitants, reaching one of the world's highest proportional death rates.
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 707. The average is still at high levels.
