Brazil recorded this Tuesday (18) 137,103 new cases of Covid-19, according to data from the National Council of Health Secretaries (Conass).

With that, it reached a moving average of 83,205 infections (considering the last seven days), a record in Conass records.

The highest record by the Council, so far, was on June 24, when the moving average reached 77,328 cases.

The current index represents a growth of 12.9% from the previous day’s moving average and 90.6% from the previous week.

The agency also recorded 351 deaths associated with Covid-19, the highest since November 17, when 373 were recorded.

As a result, the moving average (considering the last seven days) stood at 183 — an increase of 19% over the previous day’s index and 49.8% over the previous week.

Conass told the CNN that [os dados] “they may still be impacted by the hacker attack that took place on the Ministry of Health’s platform”, but which tend to be smaller and that the data reflects the high number of cases in the country.

AT CNN, the infectologist at the Hospital das Clínicas of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of São Paulo (HCFMUSP), Álvaro Furtado, also highlights that the lack of data transfer may have had an impact on the numbers of recent weeks.

“It is very difficult to make an analysis without taking into account the reporting weaknesses that we have in Brazil, especially the number of cases and testing”, he comments.

However, Furtado says the discharge reflects the scenario seen in hospitals. “Whoever takes care of patients already notices this absurdly rapid increase in cases”, he said.

Furtado explains that the country is now structuring the data better and showing a reality that was probably already happening a few weeks ago.

The infectologist also says that “as cases increase, the denominator of deaths can also increase.” “Not 100% of cases will evolve into a mild form of Ômicron. She may have a more serious outcome.”

Remember the cyber attack

The Ministry of Health website suffered a hacker attack

All portals in the folder, such as “ConecteSUS” and “Portal Covid” were also affected and were unable to access – including some systems that Municipal Health Departments use to pass data to Conass.

The Lapsus$ Group, which claimed responsibility for the attack, said at the time that 50 terabytes of information had been removed from the system and was in the group’s possession. “Contact us if you want the data returned,” the message read.
