Brazil reached 158,468 Covid-19 deaths this Wednesday (28), with 487 more deaths. 28,852 cases of the disease were also documented, leading to a total of 5,469,755 people infected with the novel 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 gives a better view of the evolution of the disease, 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 430, which represents stable scenario compared to 14 days ago.

The North remains the only region in the country with an increase in the moving average of deaths in relation to the data of 14 days ago. South and Northeast are in a stable situation. The other regions show a decrease.
