RAMOS, Pasionaria; SILVA, Elder; CANESE, Jorge  y  VELAZQUEZ, Gladys. Epidemiology of COVID cases - 19 diagnosed in sanitary shelters in greater Asunción, Paraguay (2020). Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2021, vol.19, n.2, pp.69-77. ISSN 1812-9528.  https://doi.org/10.18004/mem.iics/1812-9528/2021.019.02.69.

Paraguay opened sanitary shelters to quarantine people arriving from abroad, as a measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19 cases. The objective was to describe the epidemiological characteristics of COVID-19 cases diagnosed in sanitary shelters in Greater Asunción from March 7 to September 30. It was a descriptive, cross-sectional, temporally retrospective study, with non - probabilistic sampling of consecutive cases. The variables of confirmed cases in quarantine facilities were sex, age and departments. Open access data from the Ministry of Public Health and Social Welfare were used. For statistical analysis of the variables, frequencies, expressed as percentages, were included and the Excel program was used for it. Three hundred and ninety cases were diagnosed in Greater Asunción. The highest number of cases was in August (118 cases), 69.2% (270) of the cases in Greater Asunción were male, with a male/female ratio of 2.3, 34.9% (136) ranged from 20 to 29 years old, (mean 33.8 ±16.14, 95% CI 2.2-65.5). Eighty percent (310) of the cases occurred in the population under 50 years of age. The locations that presented the highest number of cases were Asunción (46.2%, 180) and the Districts of Luque (8.7%, 34); Ñemby (6.4%, 25) and Capiatá (5.1%, 20). The epidemiological characteristics presented were expected given the socio demographic profile of these cities.
