On July 31, Brazil again recorded a moving average of deaths below 1,000, after a period of 191 consecutive days with higher values. From March 17th to May 10th, there were 55 days in a row with this moving average above 2,000. At the worst moment of this period, the average reached a record 3,125, on April 12th.
Three states and the Federal District show an upward trend in deaths: RJ, DF, AC and SE.
Three states reported no new deaths within 24 hours: AC, AP and GO. At the Acre, the rounded moving average has ranged between 0 and 1 for 30 days. Due to the low daily number of deaths, the slight upward change over the past week (compared to the 14-day average ago) has put the state on an uptrend.
In confirmed cases, since the beginning of the pandemic 20,675,343 Brazilians have had or have the new coronavirus, with 30,288 of those confirmed on the last day. The moving average in the last 7 days was 25,904 diagnoses per day, the smallest since november 13 (when it was at 25,599), resulting in a variation of -13% in relation to the cases registered on average two weeks ago, which indicates stability.

This comparison takes into account the average of deaths in the last 7 days until the publication of this balance in relation to the average registered two weeks ago (understand the criteria used by the G1 to analyze pandemic trends).
It is noteworthy that there are states in which the low average number of deaths can lead to large percentage variations. Moving average data is generally in decimal numbers and rounded to facilitate the presentation of the data.
More than 60% of Brazilians are partially immunized, that is, they took the first dose of vaccines against Covid. The data, also gathered by the consortium of press vehicles, show that 127,098,222 doses were applied, which corresponds to 60.02%
Those who are fully immunized, that is, who took both doses or a single dose of vaccines, are 58,646,314 people, which corresponds to 27.70% of the population.
Adding the first, the second and the single dose, there are 185,744,536 doses applied in the country.
