Brazil recorded, this Saturday (15), 9 deaths from Covid and 3,270 cases of the disease. As a result, the country has lost 687,195 lives and 34,791,770 people infected with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.
The moving average of deaths is now 43 per day. In comparison with the data of two weeks ago, the average dropped 41%. The moving average of cases is 4,130 per day, down 39% over the same period.
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.
The consortium of press vehicles stopped updating the numbers of vaccinated against Covid on weekends and holidays. On working days, the data is updated as usual. The measure aims to avoid inaccuracies in the numbers provided to the reader.
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.
