With the 11% increase in the incidence of COVID-19 in the last 14 days in Minas Gerais, four health regions in the state will regress to more restrictive phases of the Minas Consciente program. The announcement was made during the deliberation of the Extraordinary Committee Covid-19, this Wednesday.

Minas Consciente is a plan designed to ensure the gradual resumption of economic activities in the municipalities of Minas Gerais.

In addition to the worsening of coronavirus transmission rates, bed occupancy in some locations has also increased, according to the Secretary of State for Health, physician Carlos Eduardo Amaral.

What changes?

The Northeast and East regions move to the program’s Red Wave. In these regions only essential services, such as supermarkets and pharmacies, are allowed to operate.

The East, South and Southeast regions are returning to Onda Amarela, which allows the opening of non-essential services with less risk of contagion, such as clothing stores and beauty sales.

The Vale do Ao region remains in Onda Amarela, while the other nine regions (Tringulo do Norte, Tringulo do Sul, Sul, Oeste, Centro, Noroeste, Norte, Jequitinhonha and Centro-Sul) are located in Onda Verde, a phase that allows the opening non-essential services with high risk of contagion, such as cinemas and bars with live music.

Second wave?

According to the Secretary of Health, despite the worsening of some indicators, there is no risk of a new wave of increased virus transmission across the state.

“What we assessed was the increased incidence of the number of cases in some regions, which caused the return of some regions of the waves in which they were. But this is the reason why we think there is a new wave in the state ”, he evaluated.

Carlos Amaral also recalled the importance of the population maintaining care to prevent the transmission of the disease. “It is essential that the miners participate in the control actions, with the use of masks, alcohol gel and social distance”, he concluded.

So far, 657 Minas Gerais cities have joined the Minas Consciente plan, impacting 13.4 million people. According to the Government of Minas, 534 cities with less than 30 thousand inhabitants registered an incidence of covid-19 below 50 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants in the last 14 days.

Green Wave

The Tringulo do Norte, Tringulo do Sul, Sul, Oeste, Centro, Noroeste, Norte, Jequitinhonha and Centro-Sul regions remained on the green wave * of Minas Consciente. This phase makes it possible to open non-essential services with a high risk of contagion. Just them:

  • Artistic activities, such as theatrical, musical and dance and circus production;
