So in another similar exercise "Muitos cavalos têm morrido" is translated as "Many horses have been dying" and "Many horses have died" is not accepted. In this exercise it's the other way around: "Many people have been dying" is not accepted.

It should be accepted though, it's actually the proper translation.
