Brazil recorded, this Thursday (29), 49 deaths from Covid and 9,894 cases of the disease. As a result, the country has lost 686,027 lives and 34,706,757 people infected with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.
The moving average of deaths now stands at 43 per day, the lowest number since April 3, 2020, when it marked 39. In comparison with the data from two weeks ago, the moving average of deaths recorded a reduction of 38%, which indicates a trend of fall. The moving average of cases is 6,747 per day (18% reduction).
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.
Twelve states have not recorded deaths from Covid in the last 24 hours, including São Paulo, which claims that it has been facing problems with the Ministry of Health system for days. Piauí and Roraima did not update the data on Thursday.
In all, 181,651,784 people received at least the first dose of a vaccine against Covid in Brazil. Added to the single doses of Janssen vaccine, there are 170,738,912 people with both doses or with one dose of Janssen vaccine.
Thus, the country already has 84.56% of the population with the 1st dose and 79.48% of Brazilians with two doses or one dose of the Janssen vaccine.
To date, 104,036,485 people have taken the third dose, and 30,459,516 the fourth.
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.
