Transparency – Pernambuco is the most transparent state in the northeast when it comes to disclosing data on the novel coronavirus epidemic. The state takes 4th place in the ranking of the whole country, with a score of 90 points, and is shown in the high level of the quality of this information. This analysis is part of the Covid-19 Transparency Index (ITC-19 3.0), a study conducted by the Brazilian division of Open Knowledge International (OKBR) – a non-governmental organization that is present today in 66 countries, working in the areas of management transparency and the opening of public data.

In this new edition of ITC Third Edition, which gathered information in August, the work highlights that Pernambuco scored a full score when analyzing data for cases and deaths from severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), with the causative agent identified. The publication confirms this criterion in this round for having found 12 entities (11 states and federal territories) without scores on this item, which are necessary to identify a potential epidemic exacerbation or underreporting of cases.

The analysis also indicates that Pernambuco has qualified for the Vaccination Monitoring Committee, an environment launched last June. Overall, the index evaluates 36 criteria, spread over three axes – content, detail and form – to make the national ranking, which, in addition to the states and the federal district, also includes the federal government.

“During the entire pandemic, the State Department of Health has been constantly working to inform the population of cases of Covid-19, and since January of this year, on the vaccination process. Along the way, we are interested in suggestions from technical areas and recommendations from oversight bodies, civil society and the general public to qualify the information, And give more transparency to the data. We believe that this transparency is essential for dialogue with the population about the state of the epidemic in our state and so that together we can overcome this serious health crisis”, says Minister of State for Health, Andre Longo.

The director emphasized that the department maintains the daily publication of an epidemiological bulletin containing data on mild cases, severe cases and deaths from the Covid-19 virus, in addition to vaccination. “We also continue to hold our press conference online, and now we are also receiving in person journalists who want to participate in the local situation,” he asserts.
