Brazil Records 530 Covid-19 Deaths and Approaches 158 Thousand Deaths

Press consortium also points out 29,353 new cases; total is 5.4 million infected people

Brazil recorded 530 Covid-19 deaths and 29,353 cases of the disease, this Tuesday (27). As a result, the country reached 157,981 deaths and 5,440,903 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 data collected until 8 pm, the average number of deaths in the last seven days is 442, which represents a scenario of stability in relation to the average of 14 days ago.
