Data are from a consortium of O GLOBO, Extra, G1, Folha de S.Paulo, UOL and O Estado de S.
10,648 new cases of Covid-19 were also recorded across the national territory, with a total of 21,871,930 people already infected with the virus. The moving average was 10,033 a positive diagnosis, down 17% from the index two weeks ago, which indicates a downtrend.
The “seven-day moving average” is the average of the number of the previous day and six. They are compared with a two-week average to indicate whether there has been an upward, consistent, or downward trend in cases or deaths. The computation is a statistical resource to be able to see the trend of the data, and to mute the ‘noise’ caused by the weekends, when the notification of deaths due to a lack of shift staff is reduced.
