The Minister of Health and Social Services, María Martín, assured this Tuesday that “there is no collapse” in the Emergency Room of the San Pedro hospital and that what happened this Monday “is a normal peak on a Monday at noon that throughout the “It clears up later.”

Martín affirms that “when there is a peak, as it may be now due to covid or a delay in hospitalization after a weekend, when people do not usually go to the doctor, on Mondays there always tend to be these peaks.” Of course, “in no case is there collapse or anything that is out of the ordinary at the San Pedro hospital.”

The head of Health has responded to criticism from the CSIF union, which reported that “at 2:20 p.m., 35 patients were waiting for a hospital bed, of which only 4 have an assigned bed and are still waiting to be transferred to the ward. “12 patients were in the prehospitalization (PH) service, some of them waiting for a bed since June 21.”

Given these data, the Minister of Health recalled that, at the highest peaks of the flu “there are up to 57 people.”

Martín has also stated that “the Contingency Plan is functioning completely normally. “Just as controls are closed, they are opened when they are needed and the demonstration is that on Monday afternoon and evening attendance was totally normal.”
