The moving average of Covid cases maintained the trend of the previous day and remains below 30 thousand infections per day. This Friday (5), the average was 27,044 cases per day. The previous figure below 30,000 was recorded on June 6, when the average was 29,682.
This Friday, there were 208 deaths from Covid and 22,930 cases of the disease. As a result, the country has lost 679,802 lives and 33,984,498 people infected with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.
The new moving average of cases represents a 38.95% drop from two weeks ago. The average number of deaths is 204 and has fallen by 15% compared to the same period.
Amapá and Mato Grosso do Sul recorded no deaths.
The country’s data, collected until 8 pm, are the result of a collaboration between Folha, UOL, O Estado de S. Paulo, Extra, O Globo and G1 to gather and disseminate figures related to the coronavirus pandemic. The information is collected by the consortium of press vehicles daily with the state Health Departments.
In all, 179,995,308 people received at least the first dose of a vaccine against Covid in Brazil. Added to the single doses of Janssen’s vaccine against Covid, there are already 169,227,571 people with both doses or with one dose of Janssen vaccine.
Thus, the country already has 83.79% of the population with the 1st dose and 78.77% of Brazilians with two doses or one dose of the Janssen vaccine.
To date, 101,529,728 people have taken the third dose and 23,033,807 the fourth.
The consortium also gathers the record of vaccine doses administered to children. With the expansion of the age group that can receive the vaccine against Covid, the consortium now presents the population from 3 to 11 years old immunized. In this range, the partially immunized share (with only the first dose of vaccine received) is 51.07% and the one that received the second dose is 32.76%.
Even those who received both doses or one dose of the Janssen vaccine should maintain basic care, such as wearing a mask and social distancing, say experts.
The initiative of the consortium of press vehicles occurred in response to the attitudes of the Jair Bolsonaro (PL) government, which threatened to withhold data, delayed newsletters about the disease and took information from the air, with the interruption of the disclosure of the totals of cases and deaths. In addition, the government has released conflicting data.
