The total number of deaths from Covid-19 in Bahia since the beginning of the epidemic is 24,235, which represents a mortality rate of 2.13%. Of the deaths, 55.75% occurred among males and 44.25% among females. In terms of race and color, 54.98% corresponded to brown, followed by white with 22.28%, black with 15.40%, yellow with 0.42%, indigenous with 0.14% and no information on 6.77% of deaths. The incidence of comorbidity was 60.50% with a higher incidence of heart disease and chronic disease (72.80%).

The existence of late records and/or a backlog of cases is due to the overburdening of investigative teams, as there are mandatory notification illnesses beyond Covid-19. Another reason is the deepening of epidemiological investigations by the municipal and state surveillance in order to avoid distortions or misunderstandings, such as ignoring the cause of death, head injury or cancer in its final stages, even if the person was infected with the Corona virus.

The Bahia State Department of Health (Sesab) makes daily contacts with the teams in each municipality in order to measure the amount of doses applied and provides detailed information on the panel.

An excessive amount of doses has been observed in vials of vaccines against Covid-19, which makes it possible to use 11 and up to 12 doses in just one vial, as is the case with other multi-dose vaccines. The Ministry of Health has issued a notice allowing the use of the increased volume provided that a full 0.5 ml dose is inhaled from one vial. Thus it can be seen that the vaccination rate in some municipalities is higher than 100%.
