Analysis of the Covid Lighthouse, a tool developed by the CoronaCidades platform, shows that among the 10 Brazilian cities with the fastest rate of contagion in the country, 7 are located in the interior of the state of Pará.
In Paragominas, a city in Pará with just over 100,000 inhabitants, the rate of contagion is 2.25, which means that each infected infects an average of 2.25 people.
João Abreu, founder of the NGO Impulso, one of those responsible for the CoronaCidades platform and for the Covid Lighthouse, explains that a rate of contagion from 1.2 onwards is already considered worrying, as it indicates an easier spread of the disease. This information was disclosed in an article by Jornal Hoje, on Rede Globo.
