Brazil recorded 516 deaths from Covid-19 and 17,526 cases of the disease this Tuesday (8). With this, the country reaches 127,517 thousand deaths from the new coronavirus and 4,165,124 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 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 691, maintaining a position of stability in the data, although with high numbers.
