Ceará has “low risk” in relation to hospitalizations for respiratory diseases

Two weeks ago, the Ceará has “low risk” in relation to hospitalizations for respiratory diseases — lowest level on a scale that also includes “moderate”, “high” and “very high” risks. The last time this indicator had shown “low risk” was in the week between January 3rd and 9th of this year. Since then, it’s been three weeks at “moderate risk”; two in “high risk” and 19 weeks in “very high risk” before the indicator started to decrease again.

Hospitalizations for respiratory causes are one of the classification indicators for the Covid-19 alert level in Ceará. In addition, the incidence of daily cases per 100,000 inhabitants is monitored; the percentage of beds in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for occupied patients with the disease; the disease fatality rate and the positivity rate in RT-PCR tests.

The indices are available on the Alert Levels panel – Covid-19, on IntegraSUS, platform of the Health Department of Ceará (Sesa). The most recent data refer to the period from 15th to 28th of August.

The only one of the five indicators that currently does not present “low risk” is the fatality rate, which is calculated by dividing the total number of deaths per Covid-19 by the total number of confirmed cases of the disease. This indicator, considering the entire state, presents “moderate risk”, but the platform points out that it is in a decreasing trend.

The indicators, on the other hand, the incidence of daily cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 inhabitants, percentage of occupied ICU beds and positivity rate are on an increasing trend. The indicator of hospitalizations for respiratory diseases is in a stabilized trend.

municipal indexes

In addition to the risk levels for each indicator facing Ceará as a whole, the panel also presents a map with the indices for each city. On this map, each city appears with the color referring to its general state, which is defined by the indicator with the highest risk level.

Green refers to level 1, “low risk”; yellow, at level 2, “moderate risk”; orange, at level 3, “high risk”, and red at level 4, “very high risk”.

So, for example, even if a municipality has three green indicators, one yellow and one red, it will appear red on the map. This is because, as this is the highest level among the indicators, it will indicate the general state of the municipality.

By clicking on a city on the map, it is possible to check the levels of each of the indicators separately.

According to data available this Sunday, August 29, there are 20 municipalities in Ceará classified as “very high risk” for Covid-19 and another 33 as “high risk”.

Among the municipalities with “very high risk” for the disease, five are located in the health region of Cariri; six are in the health region of Fortaleza; another six, in Sobral; two in the Sertão Central and one in the East Coast of Jaguaribe.

Among the cities that present “high risk”, 12 belong to the health region of Sobral, and 11, to Cariri. Another seven, to the health region of Fortaleza; two to the Sertão Central and one to the East Coast/Jaguaribe.
