The moving average of deaths caused by covid-19 in Brazil stood at 124 today and reached the 15th consecutive day in a downward trend. In the last 24 hours, 131 new deaths were recorded. The data are from the consortium of press vehicles, of which the UOL is part.

The indicator changed -19% compared to 14 days ago. If the value is above 15%, it indicates high; below -15%, means decline, and between 15% and -15%, indicates stability.

The moving average is calculated from the average of deaths — or cases — over the last seven days. The index is considered by experts as the most effective way of measuring the evolution of the disease.

Three regions follow the national scenario of a drop in the moving average of deaths: Midwest (-49%), Northeast (-30%) and South (-17%). The North, on the other hand, has a high, of 24%, while the Southeast registers stability, of -13%.

In relation to the federation units, three show acceleration in the moving average, six are stable and another 16 are in decline.

Acre, Alagoas, Amapá, Distrito Federal, Maranhão, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Rondônia, Sergipe and Tocantins did not register deaths this Friday (2). Paraná did not update data. Altogether, Brazil accumulates 684,334 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic

Today the country still recorded 13,180 new known cases of covid-19. As of March 2020, 34,505,351 positive tests have been reported.

The moving average stood at 19,893 and remains in an uptrend for the third day in a row. The index has changed by 26% compared to 14 days ago.

All regions of the country recorded a drop in the moving average of cases: Midwest (-28%), Northeast (-29%), North (-31%), Southeast (-16%) and South (-22%).

In relation to the federation units, three show acceleration in the moving average, three are stable and another 20 are in decline.

government data

The Ministry of Health reported today (2) that Brazil reported 115 new deaths caused by covid-19 in the last 24 hours. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the disease has caused 684,262 deaths across the country.

According to the ministry’s numbers, there were 11,471 positive diagnoses for covid-19 in Brazil between yesterday and today, bringing the total number of infected to 34,456,145 since March 2020.

According to the federal government, there have been 33,502,447 recovered cases of the disease so far, with another 269,436 in follow-up.

Vehicles unite for information

In response to the decision of the Jair Bolsonaro government to restrict access to data on the covid-19 pandemic, media outlets UOLO Estado de S. Paulo, Folha de S.Paulo, O Globo, g1 and Extra formed a consortium to work collaboratively to seek the necessary information directly from the state health departments of the 27 units of the Federation.

The federal government, through the Ministry of Health, should be the natural source of these numbers, but attitudes of authorities and the president himself during the pandemic cast doubt on the availability of data and its accuracy.
