Three out of ten Brazilians reported having had Covid
The survey revealed that three in ten (30%) of Brazilians report having had Covid-19 since the beginning of the pandemic, in March 2020. Of these, 25% said they had been tested to confirm the diagnosis of the disease.
“The projection of cases based on this data points out that 42 million Brazilians aged 16 and over have had Covid since the pandemic began. To confirm the information on the number of Brazilians who had covid, a countercheck was carried out among the interviewees who declared they had been contaminated and had been tested”, says the study.
In addition to analyzing the scenario related to the Covid-19 pandemic, Datafolha also considered data regarding the flu in Brazil.
According to the survey, a quarter (26%) of Brazilians aged 16 or over report having had the flu in the last 30 days, with 6% having a test to confirm this diagnosis, and the remaining 19% having not. The largest portion (71%) did not have the flu in the period and 3% were unable to inform.
The rate of those who had the flu is higher among young people aged 16 to 24 (33%) and among residents of the Midwest/North region (37%).
Among those infected with flu in the last 30 days, 43% sought medical care, with 34% receiving care in the public network and 8% in the private network.
To conduct the research, according to the Datafolha Institute, 2023 adult Brazilians who have a cell phone in all regions and states of the country were interviewed.
The margin of error is two percentage points. Data collection took place between January 12 and 13, 2022.
