Brazil recorded, this Friday (23), 91 deaths from Covid and 6,861 cases of the disease. As a result, the country has lost 685,816 lives and 34,666,387 people infected with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.
The moving average of deaths is now 67 per day, down 12% compared to 14 days ago, indicating stability. The moving average of cases is 6,415 per day (23% reduction).
The country data, collected up to 8 pm, are the result of collaboration between Sheet, UOL, O Estado de S. Paulo, Extra, O Globo and G1 to gather and publish figures related to the coronavirus pandemic. The information is collected by the consortium of press vehicles daily with the State Health Departments.
In all, 181,151,701 people received at least the first dose of a vaccine against Covid in Brazil. Adding the single doses of Janssen vaccine, there are 170,641,336 people with both doses or one dose of Janssen vaccine.
Thus, the country already has 84.32% of the population with the 1st dose and 79.43% of Brazilians with two doses or one dose of the Janssen vaccine.
To date, 103,808,300 people have taken the third dose, and 29,952,761 the fourth.
The initiative by 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.
