Covid-19: After registering more than 130 people in regulation in March, Salvador dawns with only 20 patients waiting | Bahia

“We woke up with 11 infirmary patients, a small child, totaling 11 clinicians and 10 in the ICU. So we have been maintaining a trend of inversion, instead of the patient getting more aggravated, the patient arrives with a very good level of pulmonary saturation for we put up with it and save his life with more tranquility and more security “, said Léo Prates.

Léo Prates stated that most of the 21 patients entered the queue during the night and that the current response time for entering the beds is five to six hours.

“Yesterday we ended the day with only five patients. The response time returned to the best moments of the pandemic. I believe that we have time for five, six hours for regulation and we reached 72 hours, at the worst time, for regulating patients” , said.

On Wednesday afternoon (7), the regulation queue in Salvador was cleared, according to information from the Secretary of Health. The result, according to Léo Prates, comes from the efforts of the workers at the regulatory centers, who came to work 24 hours a day, to shorten the service queue.

“We actually cleared the regulation queue yesterday afternoon, working together with the government to save lives. The queues were cleared,” he said.

“We zeroed out yesterday and today we wake up with about 21 patients, and a change is considered in the patient profile. This is the most important for us. The profile of the patient who is entering the last three days is the infirmary patient, or that is, less severe patients “.

Covid-19: Léo Prates talks about the arrival of new doses of the vaccine in Salvador

Léo Prates said that he debates the best way to increase the target public of vaccination against Covid-19 in Salvador. The idea is to do the immunization by age in two days.

“Our idea now is to start dividing the years into four shifts. That is, I would have the first three months in the morning, another three in the afternoon, then I would enter the second semester the other morning and the afternoon, the last quarter of the year. Each year would be in four shifts, in this case, in two days “, he explained.

Léo Prates also stated that there is an expectation of the arrival of new doses still on the morning of this Thursday. However, there is still no definition of the quantity of doses destined for Salvador.

“We were notified today of the arrival of new doses of vaccines. We are waiting for the quantity of new doses, because you receive the quantity of the second dose, which is already stamped to guarantee the second dose, and you receive the first dose. We still don’t know the quantitative “.

The secretary recalled that Salvador will have to slaughter about 12 thousand doses, which were anticipated for the vaccination of the first dose on Wednesday and Thursday.

“Remembering that Salvador is going to have to reduce this quantity to the doses that we will receive today, the quantity that we are using today, which is somewhere between 10 and 12 thousand doses should be slaughtered from this batch of first dose that will arrive , because we have been using it since yesterday, with authorization and with the agreement made with the state government that is the state coordinator of the system “.
