Brazil recorded, this Sunday (22), 15 deaths from Covid-19 and 1,836 cases of the disease. As a result, the country has lost 687,680 lives and 34,830,752 people infected with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.
The moving average of deaths is now 69 per day. In comparison with the data of two weeks ago, the average dropped 5%. The moving average of cases is now at 5,481 per day, a 3% reduction from 14 days ago.
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.
