Brazil recorded 818 new Covid-19 deaths and 32,129 cases of the disease this Thursday (24). The country has had 139,883 deaths and 4,659,909 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 mitigates 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 693. Recently, the moving average country has been in a situation of drop in the average, but has returned to the level of stability of the death data (which does not mean a quiet situation). The average is still at high levels.
