With 662 New Covid-19 Deaths, Brazil Approaches 155 Thousand Deaths

The country also registered 23,690 new cases and is approaching 5.3 million infected people

Brazil registered 662 new Covid-19 deaths and 23,690 cases of the disease this Tuesday (20). With this, the country reaches 154,888 deaths and 5,274,817 people infected by 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.

According to the data collected until 8 pm, the average number of deaths in the last seven days is 546, which represents a decline from the average of 14 days ago.
