Brazil recorded, this Tuesday (8), 95 deaths from Covid and 11,970 cases of the disease. With this, the country reaches 688,539 lives lost and 34,909,480 infected by Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.
The moving average of deaths now stands at 38 per day, down 44% from two weeks ago. The moving average of cases is now at 4,402 per day — down 13% over the same period.
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, 182,156,551 people received at least the first dose of a vaccine against Covid in Brazil.
Adding the single doses of Janssen vaccine, there are 171,639,652 people with both doses or one dose of Janssen vaccine.
Thus, the country already has 84.79% of the population with the 1st dose and 79.90% of Brazilians with two doses or one dose of the Janssen vaccine.
So far, 105,212,973 people have taken the third dose, and 35,091,264 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.
