Brazil reached 155,451 Covid-19 deaths. This Wednesday (21), 571 deaths were recorded. In addition, with a record of 25,832 cases, the country reached 5,300,649 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 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 the data collected until 8 pm, the average number of deaths in the last seven days is 526, which represents a decline from the average of 14 days ago.
