The Municipal Health Secretariat (SMS) of Curitiba confirmed this Friday (October 16) another 274 cases of infection with the new coronavirus and another four deaths involving residents of the capital of Paraná. With that, the municipality already totals 48,486 people diagnosed with Covid-19, of which 1,401 died.
The four most recent deaths, informed infectious-medical Marion Burger, victimized three men and one woman, aged between 64 and 88 years.
The good news, on the other hand, is that Curitiba closes the week with less than 3 thousand active cases of the disease – 2,965, more precisely – and also maintains a reproduction rate of the disease below 1 (0.96), which means that each infected person has transmitted the disease to less than one individual on average.
“What we see in all countries, the standard, is that we must maintain a level of a thousand, a thousand and a few cases in the week and 200 and a few cases a day. We have to take care because it could go up again,” he warned during the live Curitiba City Hall the Municipal Secretary of Health, Marcia Huçulak.
Cases of reinfection
At a time when several countries are registering a second wave of Covid-19, one of the main health concerns is the possibility of reinfection with the new coronavirus. And this Friday (October 16), in a live broadcast by the Curitiba City Hall, the Municipal Health Secretariat (SMS) confirmed that it is investigating cases of Curitiba patients who were infected by the disease and, after recovering, returned to presenting symptoms.
