Brazil Records 276 Covid-19 Deaths; Moving Average of Deaths Drops

Country already totals 160,548 lives lost and 5.5 million people infected by Sars-CoV-2

Brazil recorded 276 new Covid-19 deaths and 13,748 cases of the disease this Tuesday (3). As a result, the country reached 160,548 deaths and 5,567,126 people infected with the new coronavirus.

Data on weekends, holidays, and after these dates may be lower due to delays in notification to the health departments.

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 367, which represents a stable situation.
