The hypothesis of making social distance more flexible, with the increase in the circulation of asymptomatic people, would cause a 50% increase in the rate of transmission of covid-19. This is what the fourth edition of the CoVida Bulletin points out, released last Thursday (29) . The publication also highlights the insufficient number of beds in the country and the possible scenarios for the coming weeks, especially for Bahia.

The newsletter is produced by the “Covida Network – Science, Information and Solidarity”, a scientific and multidisciplinary collaboration project focused on the covid-19 pandemic. The network is the result of a partnership between Cidacs / Fiocruz and the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA), with the support of collaborators from other national and international research institutions.
