Brazil recorded this Wednesday (28) a moving average of deaths from Covid of 46. It is the first time in 907 days – since April 4, 2020, still at the beginning of the pandemic – that this number is below 50 in the country .
In the last 24 hours, 48 deaths from Covid and 8,800 cases of the disease were recorded in Brazil. As a result, the country has lost 685,978 lives and 34,696,863 people have been infected by Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the health crisis, decreed on March 11, 2020.
The moving average of 46 deaths per day represents a 32% reduction compared to 14 days ago, indicating a downward trend. The moving average of cases is at 6,446 per day (26% reduction compared to two weeks).
The country data, collected up to 8 pm, are the result of collaboration between Sheet, UOL, O Estado de S. Paulo, Extra, O Globo and G1 to gather and publish figures related to the coronavirus pandemic. The information is collected by the consortium of press vehicles daily with the State Health Departments.
Piauí and Rio de Janeiro did not update information on cases and deaths on Wednesday.
In all, 181,632,398 people received at least the first dose of a vaccine against Covid in Brazil. Adding the single doses of Janssen vaccine, there are 170,702,172 people with both doses or one dose of Janssen vaccine.
Thus, the country already has 84.55% of the population with the 1st dose and 79.46% of Brazilians with two doses or one dose of the Janssen vaccine.
To date, 103,981,605 people have taken the third dose, and 30,400,703 the fourth.
The initiative by 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.
