Three months later, Bahia registered for two consecutive days marking more than 3,000 active cases of Covid-19. On Saturday (27), 3,069 people with a positive diagnosis of the disease were still not considered to have recovered, while there were 3,110 on Friday (26). These numbers were last reached on August 28 and 29, when 3,277 and 3,141 active cases were recorded, respectively.
The state’s health secretary, Theresa Baim, notes that this is a worrying scenario, as the more active cases, the higher the chance of the virus spreading. “This is a collaborative disease. To the extent that people do not follow recommendations for mask use, physical distance and, above all, to complete the vaccination schedule, we will have new cases,” he says.

The data may still suffer changes due to the instability of the Ministry of Health system, as the ministerial database sometimes provided inconsistent or incomplete information.

Due to the update of the vaccination data submission system, not all municipalities have uploaded information regarding the vaccinated public. In this way, the numbers given in the vacancy scale correspond only to those collected by some municipalities, giving the impression of a low vaccination coverage.
Another change in standardization of information is that the Janssen vaccine, previously considered a single dose, is now counted as a two-dose vaccine.
The Bahia State Department of Health (CESAP) is in daily contact with teams in each municipality in order to measure the amount of doses applied.
As of Sunday (21), when we had the last update with 417 municipalities in Bahia, 10,952,306 people had been vaccinated against Coronavirus (Covid-19) with the first dose. This data represents 86.02% of the population aged 12 and over, estimated at 12,732,254.
