Covid-19: Moving average of deaths hits lowest value in 10 days

Data released by the Ministry of Health this Friday, 23, show that the moving average of deaths reached the lowest value in 10 days. With 73 deaths recorded, the index reached 64.3 and has been falling since August 16.

The moving average of new cases fell by 25% this Friday. With 7,772 diagnoses in the last 24 hours, the index continues to decline since July 22, for more than three months.

The analysis of the pandemic situation is based on the variation of 15%, set by infectious disease specialists as a turning point. So, if the index registers an increase of more than 15% compared to two weeks ago, it is up; if it drops by more than 15% over the same period, it is down.

The calculation of moving averages defined by experts consists of adding up all the records of the last 14 days and dividing the total by 14. Thus, it is possible to have a broad view of the current pandemic moment.

With 7,772 new cases and 73 deaths, Brazil has 34,624,427 diagnoses of Covid-19 and 685,750 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic.
