Take the test: What is your position on the vaccine line?
The press consortium, a partnership set up in June for greater transparency in Covid-19 data, is formed by O GLOBO, Extra, G1, Folha de S. Paulo, UOL and O Estado de S. Paulo and gathers information published by the state health services in a bulletin released at 8 p.m.
The bulletin includes, as of last Thursday, the revelation of the number of people vaccinated in the country. Thirteen states have made the data available so far. So far, 528,288 people have been vaccinated.
The moving average of deaths, also measured by the survey, was 1,021. The moving average of cases, in turn, stood at 51,344, a steady index compared to two weeks ago.
The “7-day moving average” makes an average between the number of deaths per day and the previous six. It is compared to an average of two weeks ago to show if there is an uptrend, stability or downtrend. The calculation is a statistical resource to be able to see the trend of the data, drowning out the “noise” caused by the weekends, when the death notice is reduced due to the lack of employees working.
