Brazil recorded 431 deaths from Covid and 68,540 cases of the disease, this Monday (7). On Mondays, the pandemic data is usually smaller, due to notification delays.
The moving average of deaths continues to increase, compared to data from two weeks ago. It is now 765 lives lost per day, an increase of 131%.
On the other hand, the moving average of cases is stable, that is, without variations greater than 15% in relation to the average of two weeks ago. It now stands at 164,433 infections per day.
With this Monday’s data, the country has lost 632,720 lives and 26,605,137 people infected with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.
The country data, collected up to 8 pm, are the result of collaboration between leaf, UOL, O Estado de S. Paulo, Extra, O Globo and G1 to gather and disclose the numbers related to the new coronavirus pandemic. The information is collected by the consortium of press vehicles daily with the state Health Departments.
Vaccination data against Covid-19 was affected by the hacker attack on the Ministry of Health system, which took place in December, which led to the lack of updates in several states for long periods of time. This Friday, the information was updated in 19 states and the Federal District.
The consortium of press vehicles recently updated the Brazilian population numbers used to calculate the percentage of people vaccinated in the country. Now, the data used are the IBGE (Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics) projection for 2022. All numbers are now calculated according to these values, including last year’s. Therefore, the percentages of people vaccinated may differ from the previously published figures.
Brazil registered 999,146 doses of vaccines against Covid-19, this Monday. According to data from the state health departments, there were 306,538 first doses and 142,203 second doses. 3,023 single doses and 547,382 booster doses were also recorded.
In all, 167,289,250 people received at least the first dose of a vaccine against Covid in Brazil — 146,492,853 of them have already received the second dose of the immunizer. Added to the single doses of Janssen’s vaccine against Covid, there are already 151,212,431 people with both doses or with one dose of Janssen vaccine.
Thus, the country already has 77.87% of the population with the 1st dose and 70.39% of Brazilians with both doses or with one dose of the Janssen vaccine. Considering only the adult population, the values are, respectively, 103.41% and 93.47%.
The consortium also started recording the doses of vaccines given to children. The population aged 5 to 11 years partially immunized (with only the first dose of vaccine received) is 15.33%.
Considering the entire population over 5 years, 83.58% received one dose and 75.55% received two doses or Janssen’s single dose vaccine.
Even those who received both doses or one dose of the Janssen vaccine should maintain basic care, such as wearing a mask and social distancing, say experts.
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. In addition, the government has released conflicting data.
