The most recent Infogripe Bulletin, linked to the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz), revealed that cases of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SRAG) caused by Covid-19 have stopped growing in virtually all states.
The bulletin was released on Thursday (26th) and is based on data from the Ministry of Health’s Influenza Epidemiological Surveillance Information System (Sivep-Flu), collected up to January 23rd.
In the last four weeks, the number of SARS cases related to Covid-19 was 71.3%. In the previous period, it was 77.8%, which suggests a relevant reduction in statistics.

“Most of the country is returning to significantly low Covid-19 levels compared to history. Fortunately, there is no sign of growth resuming at the beginning of the year”, explained researcher Marcelo Gomes, in a press release for the bulletin.
The survey also noticed an interruption in the growth of cases of respiratory syndrome associated with the Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), responsible for the hospitalization of children affected by bronchiolitis. Only the Federal District still registers stability at a high level.

“Growth has stopped, but there is still a relatively constant volume of weekly hospitalizations”, explained Gomes about the situation in the DF.
States such as Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo and São Paulo still show a significant presence of RSV, despite suggesting a slight decline. This virus also has a strong presence in the states of the southern region. According to data from the Bulletin, in the last four epidemiological weeks, 18% of cases caused by the Respiratory Syncytial Virus were computed.
