Within six days, Humanitas Unimed Hospital in Varginha recorded a massive increase in cases of flu-like symptoms.
The number increased from 21 to 80 cases. And four times in the hospital influenza unit.
For this reason, the care team alerts residents about maintaining care and preventing disease. “Care must be maintained, there has been a significant increase in flu symptoms, especially in emergency care,” he says
Hospital Supervisor, Polyana Lucinda Bossi.
Due to the growth in the number of cases, assistance teams are striving to maintain the average service time within the Manchester Protocol.
Remember that the Influenza Symptom Care Unit is independent of urgent and emergency care in the hospital. “We ask our customers to be patient, with this increase in influenza illnesses, our specialist unit is working with all its resources,” he continues.
Care growth is divided into influenza cases in general and Covid-19 cases as well. The alert is to double care at this time.
The supervisor reports: “We shouldn’t panic, but this is a delicate time.
Like any other virus, influenza is preventable.”
