The increase of pseudomonas aeroginosa positivity in samples from patients carrying the novo coronavirus
Keywords:Pseudomonas aeruginosa; Disinfection; COVID-19; Health.
In 2019, the first cases of the new virus in the world began, in the city of Wuhan, China. As it is easy to spread, it quickly arrived in Brazil in February 2020, being declared a pandemic. The virus is transmitted through the airways, so new methods were used for possible control of the disease. This work intends to evaluate articles that talk about the prevalence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in samples of patients with the new coronavirus, in order to present this prevalence so that they can be analyzed and used for future publications. All publications that had data on the prevalence of Pseudomonas aeroginosa in samples of patients with the new coronavirus, scientific publications, official publications of the World Health Organization (WHO) and government, within a given date (2019-2021) were used. Data were collected using the following scientific databases: Latin American and Caribbean Literature on Health Sciences (LILACS), National Library of Medicine (PUBMED), PERIODICOS, SCIENCE DIRECT, Virtual Health Library – (BVS), Scientific Electronic Library Online (SCIELO), Cochrane Library, HighWire Press, Scopus and Elsevier. A total of 3,011 articles were found (Table 1) in the scientific databases: Latin American and Caribbean Literature on Health Sciences (LILACS), National Library of Medicine (PUBMED), PERIODICOS, SCIENCE DIRECT, Virtual Health Library – (BVS), Scientific Electronic Library Online (SCIELO), Cochrane Library, HighWire Press, Scopus and Elsevier. The following descriptors were used: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, HOSPITAL INFECTION, SARS-COV-2, COVID 19 in English, Portuguese and Spanish. Based on the results of this research, we saw that there is a greater need for the creation of standardization of protocols, for the reduction of cases and also for cleaning. We need more work and research for data renewal and a greater update for the population.
