The risk of contamination by the coronavirus is considered high or very high in 42 municipalities in Mato Grosso. Across the state, 14 deaths from the disease have already been confirmed, in addition to 6,500 people infected by the virus. The data is available on the Covid-19 Panel of the State Department of Health (SES).

Very high risk (red) is characterized when, in a period of 14 days, more than 500 cases are recorded for every 100 thousand inhabitants. High risk (orange) occurs when, in the same period, between 150 and 499 cases are confirmed.

In these cities, the SES recommendation includes avoiding crowds, using a face mask, always keeping your hands clean and avoiding touching your face with dirty hands.

In some municipalities, such as Cáceres, Nova Xavantina and Várzea Grande, it has already been recommended that the population return to using masks, especially in health units.

Last week, the State Government recommended that patients, healthcare professionals and visitors wear masks on the premises of state healthcare establishments. The measure is an attempt to curb contamination in these locations.

The municipalities where the risk is very high are: Araguainha, União do Sul, Porto dos Gaúchos, Serra Nova Dourada, Luciara and Alto Boa Vista.

The cities where the risk is high are: Lucas do Rio Verde, Diamantino, Paranaíta, Cocalinho, Poconé, Barra do Bugres, Tabaporã, Matupá, Água Boa, Porto Estrela, Nova Santa Helena, Tangará da Serra, São Félix do Araguaia , Nova Guarita, Apiacás, Nortelândia, Novo Santo Antônio, Nova Lacerda, Canabrava do Norte, Novo Horizonte do Norte, Nobres, Cáceres, Sinop, Conquista D’Oeste, Cláudia, Nova Monte Verde, Peixoto de Azevedo, Itaúba, Indiavaí, Araputanga , Juara, Dom Aquino, Nossa Senhora do Livramento, Arenápolis, Feliz Natal and Nova Mutum.
