Brazil recorded 104 deaths from Covid and 56,889 cases of the disease this Friday (25). With that, the country reaches 689,500 lives lost and 35,203,980 infected since the beginning of the pandemic.
The moving average of deaths is 77 per day, up 72% compared to the data from 14 days ago. The moving average of cases is at 23,481 per day, up 163% over the same period.
Of the states that updated the information, Acre, Alagoas, Ceará, Mato Grosso, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima and Sergipe, in addition to the Federal District, did not register deaths.
The country’s data, collected until 8 pm, are the result of 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 daily by the consortium of press vehicles with the state Health Secretariats.
In all, 182,063,315 people received at least the first dose of a Covid vaccine in Brazil.
Added to the single doses of Janssen’s vaccine, there are 172,102,720 people with both doses or one dose of Janssen’s vaccine.
Thus, the country already has 84.75% of the population with the 1st dose and 80.11% of Brazilians with two doses or one dose of Janssen’s vaccine.
So far, 106,222,350 people have already taken the third dose, and 36,887,968, the fourth.
The initiative by the consortium of press vehicles occurred in response to the actions of the Jair Bolsonaro (PL) government, which threatened to withhold data, delayed bulletins about the disease and removed information from the air, with the interruption of the disclosure of total cases and deaths.
