Covid-19 cases registered in the private network fell by 44%, in the comparison between the week of March 10th to 16th and the week of March 17th to 23rd, going from 3,918 positive results to 2,205.

The number of Covid-19 tests carried out also reduced. It went from 27,238 to 22,446, representing a drop of approximately 18% compared between weeks.

Since the week of February 25th to March 2nd, both the number of tests and the positivity rate have been falling. In the last six weeks, from February 11th to March 23rd, 167,453 Covid-19 tests were carried out, with the average positivity rate for the period being 20%, totaling 36,834 positives.

This information is essential to assess the disease situation and guide health measures public.
