Brazil registered 370 new Covid-19 deaths and 15,915 cases of the disease on Sunday (20). Thus, the country reached 136,895 deaths from the new coronavirus and 4,544,262 people infected since the beginning of the pandemic.
Over the weekend, there were 46,828 new cases and 1,078 deaths.
The data comes of an unprecedented collaboration between Folha, UOL, O Estado de S. Paulo, Extra, O Globo, and G1 to gather and disclose the numbers related to the pandemic of the new coronavirus. The information is collected directly from the state Health Departments.
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 747. The moving average has fallen drastically in recent weeks, but now it is stable. The average is still at high levels.
