Abstract

Objective: To describe the Diseases, Injuries, and Public Health Events (DAE in Brazilian acronym) of Compulsory Notification registered by the National Hospital Epidemiological Surveillance Network (RENAVEH in Brazilian acronym), before and during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Results: From 2017 to 2020, RENAVEH registered 1,258,455 DAE forms, with only 225,081 (17.9%) registrations in 2020 that represent a decrease of 146,340 records compared to 2019. The temporal analysis showed a decrease per epidemiological week of more than one thousand records in notifications since epidemiological week 12.
