In this way, the moving average of victims now reaches a level well above what it was on the eve of the hacker attack which generated problems in records throughout Brazil, which took place in the early hours of December 9th and 10th (read more below). At the time, this average indicated 183 deaths from the disease each day.

The numbers are in the new survey by the consortium of press vehicles on the situation of the coronavirus pandemic in Brazil, consolidated at 20 pm. The balance is based on data from the state health departments.
Instability in systems
After the Ministry of Health data blackout, states began to normalize the release of Covid-19 numbers in Brazil on January 4.
On December 12, the ministry reported that the process to recover the records of Brazilians vaccinated against Covid-19 after a hacker attack was completed, without loss of information. But the next day, Minister Marcelo Queiroga said that there was a new hacker attack. The initial forecast of stabilization of the systems, of December 14, was not fulfilled.
In early January, the ministry reported that four of its platforms were re-established in December; stated that, on January 7, the integration between local systems and the national data network was normalized, and that the return of access to information was gradual.

Ministry of Health data blackout completes one month
According to the folder, the instability in the system did not interfere with the surveillance of cases of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, such as Covid. It’s the opposite of what researchers say.
“We can’t plan the opening of new hospital services, testing centers, opening new beds and understand the regions where the impact of the new variant is greater”, says Julio Croda, infectologist and researcher at Fiocruz.
“We didn’t see the evolution and arrival of the omicron. It didn’t suddenly appear in the New Year. It came in during the month of December, and we were completely in a blind flight there, because there hadn’t been any; we didn’t saw the data grow”, says Professor Marcelo Medeiros, founder of Covid-19 Analytics. He stopped the service that helps authorities make decisions amid the pandemic.
Death curve in the states
- On the rise (21 states and the DF): PE, PR, PB, RS, RN, MS, GO, SC, SP, AC, AM, AL, SE, ES, DF, RJ, MG, AP, MT, BA, MA, PI
- In stability (2 states): RR, RO
- Falling (2 states): DUCK
- Not disclosed (1 state): EC
This comparison takes into account the average of deaths in the last 7 days until the publication of this balance sheet in relation to the average recorded two weeks ago (understand the criteria used by the g1 to analyze pandemic trends).
It is worth mentioning that there are states in which the low average number of deaths can lead to large percentage variations. Moving average numbers are generally in decimal numbers and rounded off to facilitate the presentation of data. The percentage change to calculate the trend (up, stability or drop) takes into account the unrounded numbers.

Consortium of press vehicles
Data on coronavirus cases and deaths in Brazil were obtained after an unprecedented partnership between g1, O Globo, Extra, O Estado de S.Paulo, Folha de S.Paulo and UOL, which started working collaboratively, since June 8, 2020, to gather the necessary information in the 26 states and the Federal District (know more).
