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 data collected until 8 pm, the average number of deaths in the last seven days is 439, representing a stable situation.
