Brasilia - The rate of spread of the Sars-Cov-2 virus in Brazil, responsible for the Covid-19 pandemic, is today similar to that of Italy and is accelerating, according to a university research quoted by the G1 new website.
Coordinated by the so-called Covid-19 BR Observatory that analyzes the figures of the national crisis and of which seven universities are members, the research predicts that on Tuesday the number of confirmed cases would exceed 3,000 in the country.
The trend is for it to double every 54 hours and 43 minutes. According to the source, estimates would be as follows: this Saturday 1,091 cases; tomorrow (1,478); Monday (2,033) and Tuesday (2,714 cases, with the maximum forecast of up to 3,400).
The universities of Sao Paulo, Campinas State, Paulista State, Brasilia, ABC Federal, Berkley (United States) and Oldenburg (Germany) participated in the research.
Our calculations corroborate the idea that the beginning of the curve of the Brazilian epidemic is the same as in Italy and Spain, when these countries were at the beginning (of the contagion),' Professor Roberto Kraenkel, from the Institute of Theoretical Physics at the Paulista State University, told G1.
