Hospital services back to normal in Camagüey

Camagüey, Jul 21.- Hospital services in the province of Camagüey are back to normal, in correspondence with the start of the third phase of the post-Covid-19 recovery, which most of the country reached the day before.

Therefore, the Amalia Simoni Clinical Surgical Hospital in this city begins with its full capacity, one of the two institutions destined since the beginning of the pandemic for the treatment of possible infections and confirmed cases of the dangerous disease.

The first hospital center founded in Cuba after the triumph of the Revolution began to gradually resume its services, including outpatient consultations, when the post-Covid-19 stage began on June 18, after undergoing a deep disinfection process.

Only the provincial service of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation does not fulfill its usual functions because, due to the maintenance actions deployed, it is destined to assist dengue suspects, he added.

Elective major surgery is already beginning in surgical institutions.

Collot Gutiérrez highlighted that even during the most complex epidemiological situation, consultations of the specialties were maintained in the nine health areas of the provincial capital and in the rest of the municipalities, through community outreach, although the frequency of encounters with fewer patients.

During the third stage, family visits to hospital institutions return three times a week, and they will only be accompanied by those patients who require it, in addition to the use of the mask in public and closed places, where there are social gatherings.

According to Manuel Marrero Cruz, Prime Minister, in a session of the Temporary Working Group for the prevention and control of the new coronavirus, only Havana will continue in the first phase until the health indicators of the second are met, in a sustained manner for 10 days, and Mayabeque will continue in the second phase until the parameters determined by the Ministry of Public Health are met.
