The project will be presented by the coordinator Isabela Cardoso, with the participation of teachers: Luis Eugenio de Souza, Marcele Paim, Marcelo Castellanos, Mariluce Souza, Monique Esperidião and Rosana Aquino.

ObservaCovid brings together seven subprojects and a wide network of researchers around the task of analyzing health surveillance models, strategies and actions at different levels of care, with a view to reducing exposure to the risk of contamination in the population and in workers health, early case detection and timely referral of patients to specialized and hospital assistance.
