The health professionals were overwhelmed with emotion and an atmosphere of celebration, as they concluded the recent shift of care for Covid-19 cases at the Rubim Aronovich Primary Health Care Unit, in the southern region of Macapá. Due to the increased spread of the epidemic in the first semester, the place was reserved exclusively for patients infected with the novel coronavirus.
From reduced appointments, from 250 per day in the beginning to about 70 today, UBS is back to providing basic care services.
In a video released by the city’s city council, specialists come out of one of the clinical rooms and carry several posters with the words: “Recent turnaround for Covid-19 UBS Rubim Aronovich, thank you from the heart”.
Outside the room where they fought to save lives in one of the toughest moments in the fight against the novel coronavirus, nurses say goodbye with waves, joy and smiles hidden by face masks.
The growing need to care for those infected as the pandemic progresses has led to a change in the way UBSs are cared for, with some becoming a gateway to novel coronavirus cases.
At least 11 people have died in basic units awaiting transfer to the University Hospital (HU)’s Covid Center, an on-duty reference in the state.
