Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic crisis led to a reflection on health systems in general, addressing the importance not only of equitable, but also universal, care to populations in a global context. Numerous ways to identify and propose alternatives to COVID-19 issues are enabled by technological advances, specifically those applied to health. This study aimed to investigate COVID-19-related epidemiological and prognostic factors remotely in primary care in the Brazilian public health system. The sample consisted of 77 users of primary care who had records of respiratory symptoms during the pandemic, aged between 5 and 83 years. The study was carried out in 07 Health Centers in Porto Belo (SC), Brazil. Data analysis and subsequent evaluation found a possible demand with symptoms and sequelae of COVID-19 that was shown mainly by users who reported difficulty or “tiredness” in basic Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs), which may result in patients with chronic muscle fatigue and dyspnea as a future demand in the municipality.
