Data from the epidemiological picture published by the Ministry of Health this Friday, 6th, show that the number of Brazilians diagnosed with Covid-19 has reached 30,543,908 since 2020. Deaths caused as a result of complications from the disease reached 664,091. In the last 24 hours, 19,725 new cases and 195 deaths were recorded.
According to the survey, the moving average of new cases was 15,838 diagnoses. This index represents a increase of 21.30% compared to the number recorded two weeks ago, an upward trend from the previous day, which was 8.96%.
The moving average of deaths recorded 97.3, a increase of 4.77% in relation to the data recorded 14 days ago, an index that rises again after the last two days of decline.
The bulletin also points out a balance of the regions of the country with the highest number of accumulated deaths since the beginning of the pandemic: Southeast (317,650), Northeast (128,756), South (104,239), Midwest (63,337) and North (50,109).
The analysis of the pandemic situation is based on the 15% variation set by infectious disease specialists as the inflection point. So if an index registers more than a 15% increase from two weeks ago, it is up; if the index falls by more than 15% over the same period, it is down. Averages that remain between -15% and 15% are defined as stable.
The calculation of moving averages defined by experts consists of adding up all the records of the last 14 days and dividing the total by 14. Thus, it is possible to have a broad view of the current pandemic moment.
