The COVID-19, is an infectious disease with a high standard of transmissibility in some geographical locations, which has spread throughout the world, requiring an immediate pandemic response. The study aimed to analyze the epidemiological behavior regarding the new case and death records by COVID-19, according to the different regions of Brazil and the state of Espírito Santo, comparing the results presented in Epidemiological Bulletins numbered 06, 11, 20 and 27 of 2020. An investigation was carried out on the distribution of variables - age group, sex and risk factors. Bibliographic surveys were carried out, in addition to a descriptive observational study, based on secondary data sources in the public domain and a descriptive analysis using Microsoft Office / Excel software. The results showed that in BE 6, the Southeast region had the highest number of cases (5,658) and the highest number of deaths (276), in BE 11 the Southeast region remained as the first in number of cases (19,067) and deaths (1,329), as well as in BE 20 and 27, however, mortality in the North region in BE 11 was similar to that in the Southeast region and in BE 20 and 27 it was higher than all regions, including higher than the national average. To this end, it is emphasized that the economic and human resources differences present in the southeastern and northern regions reveal the inequality and disparity to face this disease in our territory, in addition to the positive impact of non-pharmacological prevention measures on the number of cases in the country.
