Abstract

São Paulo was the epicentre and major focus of SARS-CoV-2 dissemination in Brazil. The first documented case was a senior citizen admitted to a private hospital in São Paulo just after his return from Italy. Less than a week later, the first local infections were documented. The spread of COVID-19 in São Paulo has a vivid and complex plot. Different and sometimes opposing forces emerged, either favouring or reducing the pandemic’s spread.
