Brazil registered 12,220 new coronavirus cases and 354 deaths this Tuesday (13). The country has 5,114,823 positive tests and 151,063 victims of Covid-19 since the start 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 499, which represents a 28% drop from the average of 14 days ago, although the index still remains at high levels.

All regions of the country showed a drop in the moving average. The only state that had an increase was Acre (17%).
