Bahia records 22 deaths and 1,919 new cases of covid-19 in 24 hours – Jornal CORREIO


Bahia recorded 22 deaths and 1,919 new cases of covid-19 (growth rate of + 0.5%) in 24 hours, according to an epidemiological bulletin released by the State Health Secretariat (Sesab) in the late afternoon of this Friday (27). In the same period, 1,649 patients were considered cured of the disease (+ 0.4%).

Of the 394,300 confirmed cases since the beginning of the pandemic, 377,107 are already considered recovered, 8,986 are active.

For statistical purposes, state epidemiological surveillance considers a patient recovered 14 days after the onset of Covid-19 symptoms. Active cases are the result of the following calculation: number of total cases, less deaths, less recovered. Calculations are performed automatically.

The confirmed cases occurred in 417 municipalities in Bahia, with a greater proportion in Salvador (24.84%). The municipalities with the highest incidence rates per 100,000 inhabitants were Ibirataia (9,195.40), Aiquara (6,882.59), Itabuna (6,848.23), Madre de Deus (6,826.91), Almadina (6,789.90).

The epidemiological bulletin also records 794,454 cases discarded and 103,192 under investigation. These data represent official notifications compiled by the Center for Strategic Information on Health Surveillance in Bahia (Cievs-BA), together with the municipal Cievs and the databases of the Ministry of Health until 5 pm this Friday.

In Bahia, 31,301 health professionals were confirmed for covid-19.

Today’s epidemiological bulletin counts 22 deaths that occurred on different dates, as shown in the table below. The existence of late records and / or accumulation of cases is due to the overload of the investigation teams, as there are diseases of compulsory notification in addition to the covid-19.

Another reason is the deepening of epidemiological investigations by the municipal and state surveillance in order to avoid distortions or misunderstandings, such as disregarding the cause of death, head trauma or terminal cancer, even if the person is infected with the coronavirus.

The total number of deaths by Covid-19 in Bahia since the beginning of the pandemic is 8,207, representing a lethality of 2.08%.

Among the deaths, 56.37% occurred in males and 43.63% in females. Regarding race and color, 54.62% corresponded to brown, followed by white with 18.22%, black with 14.85%, yellow with 0.72%, indigenous with 0.11% and there is no information in 11.48% of deaths.
