Due to instability in the official systems, exceptionally on Tuesday (23), the extraction took place at the cut-off point at 4 pm. The official databases of the Ministry of Health are downloaded daily at 5:30 am.

This fact resulted in an increase in the number of notifications and the number of notifications far beyond what was normal yesterday (23). Today (24) the methodology was resumed and extraction was performed at the usual time, so the interval between extractions was short, which may lead to a smaller increase in confirmed cases.

Due to the update of the vaccination data submission system, not all municipalities have uploaded information regarding the vaccinated public. In this way, the numbers shown in the vacancy scale correspond only to those collected by some municipalities, giving the impression of a low vaccination coverage.

Another change in standardization of information is that the Janssen vaccine, previously considered a single dose, is now counted as a two-dose vaccine.

The Bahia State Department of Health (CESAP) makes daily contact with the teams in each municipality in order to measure the amount of doses applied.
