The SARS-Cov-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, was first detected in December 2019 in the city of Wuhan, located in China. From this event, its evolution in several countries was rapid, and an epidemic was declared on January 31, 2020. With the high rate of individuals affected by the virus, we note the importance of assessing its evolution in individuals living in the municipality of Colatina - ES to better understand its transmission and identify its aggravating factors. In this scenario, the objective of this study was to analyze the evolution of COVID-19 between the months of January to August 2020 in the municipality of Colatina - ES. This is an observational, cross-sectional study of the descriptive type, which used secondary data based on the Panel COVID-19 - ES of the State Health Secretariat of Espírito Santo - SESA. The incidence of COVID-19 cases in the municipality of Colatina during the study period was 43.12 / 1000 inhabitants. Among the cases, there was a higher prevalence in females 55.4% (n = 2,946) compared to males 44.6% (n = 2,376). There was a greater infection in individuals affected by cardiac comorbidities, as well as a greater number of cases occurring in July. It was also found that individuals aged between 30 and 39 years were the most infected and the highest rate of infections occurred in the neighborhoods São Silvano, Maria das Graças and Centro. Thus, it is necessary to adopt restrictive measures of social distance in order to reduce the incidence of cases.
