cases COVID-19 increased again in Brazil. The number of infected people increased in February when the daily rate was 14,542 cases. Between April 24 and 30, Sao Paulo showed an increase in the number of cases and hospitalizations. This Tuesday, Brazil recorded 21,000 new cases of Covid-19. In the same period, 92 people died of the disease. at Sao Paulo, the growth is close to 5%. For professionals, the decrease in immunity is directly related to Vaccine cycle of the population, which is still incomplete. “Vaccine coverage with the third dose for those aged 18 and under 60 is still very low. The coverage of the fourth dose for those over the age of 60 is also bad. It is a major concern,” explains the infectious disease doctor. Rachel Stucci. Also, according to her, it is necessary to pay attention to the flexibility of the use of masks. Today, São Paulo is the state with the most Covid-19 cases, followed by Minas GeraisAnd Parana And Rio Grande do Sul. We already know that vaccines cannot prevent mild cases of the disease. At this point we can say that Ômicron should be responsible for these states now. Given the flexibility of activities and the mandatory use of masks, it was expected that we would have more people with Covid-19 symptoms. Private clinics in São Paulo have also confirmed the increased demand for Covid-19 tests.
