Due to the instability of the Ministry of Health’s systems in recent weeks, it was not possible to update the data from the Vaccination Ranking in Mato Grosso and the number of cases and deaths of Covid-19 in the country. The data will be updated and disclosed as soon as SES’s access to the Federal Government’s systems is re-established.
There are already vaccines to prevent infection with the new coronavirus, but it is still important to adopt some distancing and biosecurity measures. The SES and Ministry of Health websites have official information about Covid-19. The orientation is that untrue information is not disclosed, as false news causes panic and hinders the conduct of work by the health services.
The Ministry of Health guides basic care to reduce the overall risk of contracting or transmitting acute respiratory infections, including the new virus. Among the measures are:
– Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer;
– Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands;
– Avoid close contact with sick people;
– Cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing with a tissue and throw it in the trash;
– Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
