After announcing the opening of 30 ICU beds for covid-19, on his social networks, the secretary of health Leo Prates told MAIL that if the population of Salvador does not collaborate, a new wave of closure of commercial activities may happen.
“At that moment, we are not taking that risk. But I must emphasize that our capacity is finite. If people do not help us, we will need to close again, because there is a limit”, alerts Leo Prates. The occupancy rate of the ICU beds for the covid-19 reached 62% in Salvador, announced the secretary this Saturday (21).
In addition to cases of covid-19, “there is a significant increase in people with stroke and myocardial infarction needing assistance”, he explains. “Either society understands that public health is everyone together, hand in hand, or we will have serious problems”, he reinforces.
The announcement about the reopening of beds comes a day after Wet’n Wild’s Campaign hospital was shut down. Three patients were still hospitalized at the site on Friday (20): two were transferred to the Sagrada Família Hospital and one was referred to the Memorial.
The high cost was decisive for the closure of the field hospital, says the secretary of health. “We managed to get private funds for Wet’n Wild, because the Federal Government, in my view, mistakenly did not finance it”, he criticizes.
“Today, he turned on the yellow light for us. We had a reserve and we will use it. But our capacity is finite”, he reinforces. Leo Prates also says that the Municipal Health Secretariat is working together with the state government to increase the teams for a safe hospital discharge.
“I have already scheduled a meeting on Monday with the health team. If necessary, we will open more beds”, announces the secretary.
Despite having no more patients on site, SMS said that the structure will not be dismantled immediately, so that the hospital will be able to function again if necessary. Today, the space has about 20 beds in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and 80 in the ward.
According to the Municipal Health Department, the field hospital received 1,440 patients with coronavirus. Of these, 998 patients were hospitalized in the Wet’n Wild 1 tent, while 442 patients were hospitalized in the Parallel 2 tent.
Of those intruded in the Wet’n Wild 1 tent, 657 patients were cured and 219 died. In Parallel 2, 320 were cured and 55 deaths.
The increase in numbers in Salvador follows a trend in Brazil. The 22nd round of Serie A of the Brazilian Championship began, this Friday (20), under the impact of an impressive increase in cases of covid-19 among players, coaches, members of the technical committee and employees of the clubs.
As of Friday evening, there were more than 50 cases in 10 teams and 4 coaches were contaminated and out of action. Only Palmeiras, which leads the “ranking” with 18 cases, removed 5 more players on Friday. CBF understands that contamination does not occur in the field and does not consider changing the protocol at this time.
