Brazil recorded 341 new Covid-19 deaths and 18,586 new cases of the disease on Monday (19). The country surpassed 154 thousand deaths, reaching 154,226 deaths and 5,251,127 people infected with the new coronavirus 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. The moving average for the past seven days is 502 deaths.
Brazil has a rate of 73.2 deaths per 100 thousand inhabitants. The United States, which has the highest absolute number of deaths (218,448), and the United Kingdom (43,519), both ahead of Brazil in the pandemic (i.e., started to suffer from the problem before), have 66.9 and 65.5 dead for every 100 thousand inhabitants, respectively. The country has also exceeded Italy's death rate per 100,000 inhabitants (60.3).
