See the sequence of the last week in the moving average:

  • Wednesday (29): 544
  • Thursday (30): 540
  • Friday (1): 513
  • Saturday (2): 500
  • Sunday (3): 500
  • Monday (4): 498
  • Tuesday (5): 479

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.

Six states (CE, SE, AP, PI, RS, MG) it’s the DF present death toll.

the state of Rondônia did not update data of cases and deaths for the fifth day in a row. In an official note, the area responsible for RO data informed that its system is undergoing structural adjustment adjustments, due to the change in the national database of the E-SUS system.

In confirmed cases, since the beginning of the pandemic, 21,498,932 Brazilians have had or have the new coronavirus, with 22,109 of those confirmed on the last day. The moving average in the last 7 days was 16,791 new diagnoses per day. This represents a variation of -53% in relation to cases registered in two weeks, which indicates fall in the diagnoses.

The large drop indicated by the variation deserves a caveat, as the data from two weeks ago was inflated after adding tens of thousands of dammed cases. Several states have had problems following an adjustment to the national system that centralizes Covid’s case data, which resulted in this impoundment.

Cases of damming continue to be reported. O Federal District included on Tuesday more than 2,600 cases dammed, according to a note sent to the press. The number made the DF moving average go back to above 1,000 after more than 150 days, but it was not significant to affect the national average so much.

At its worst, the curve of the national moving average reached the mark of 77,295 new daily cases, on June 23 this year.

  • Total deaths: 598,871
  • Record of deaths within 24 hours: 686
  • Average of new deaths in the last 7 days: 479 (14-day variation: -10%)
  • Total confirmed cases: 21,498,932
  • Registration of confirmed cases within 24 hours: 22,109
  • Average of new cases in the last 7 days: 16,791 (14-day variation: -53%)
  • On the rise (6 states and the DF): CE, SE, AP, PI, RS, DF, MG
  • In stability (7 states): PE, MS, SP, MA, ES, AM, RJ
  • Falling (12 states): PR, AL, SC, GO, TO, PB, MT, RN, BA, PA, AC, RR
  • Not updated (1 state): RO

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 95 million Brazilians are fully immunized against Covid. Data also gathered by the consortium of press vehicles indicate that 95,154,683 people took the second dose or the single dose of immunizations since the beginning of the vaccination. This corresponds to 44.61% of the country’s population.

Those who are partially immunized with the first dose of vaccines are 148,111,367 people, which corresponds to 69.43% of the population. The booster dose was applied to 1,548,073 people (0.73% of the population).

Adding the first dose, the second, the single and the booster, there are 244,814,123 doses applied since the beginning of the vaccination.
