The reduction in the volume of new cases in the last days caused the city's classification to be changed on Wednesday (9).

The monitoring model used by Folha is based on the evolution of cases in each location and has a period of 30 days as its parameter, with more weight for the most recent period. Thus, the acceleration of the epidemic is measured; This is how the number of new cases increases or decreases.
