The consortium of media outlets released a new survey of the situation of the coronavirus pandemic in Brazil from data from the state health secretariats, consolidated at 8 pm this Thursday (17).
The country registered 1,054 deaths by Covid-19 in the last 24 hours, reaching a total of 184,876 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic. The country had not registered 1,000 deaths in one day since September 15, when 1,090 deaths were registered.

The variation was +27% compared to the average of 14 days ago, indicating an upward trend in deaths from the disease.
In confirmed cases, since the beginning of the pandemic 7,111,527 Brazilians have had or have the new coronavirus, with 68,832 of these confirmed on the last day — the second highest record since the beginning of the consortium’s disclosure. The moving average in the last 7 days was 46,855 new diagnoses per day. This is the highest moving average of cases since the beginning of the pandemic. This represents a +10% variation from cases registered in two weeks, indicating a trend of stability in diagnoses.
