Faced with an increase in infections, capacities for the isolation of positives increase.

The health situation continues to be very uncertain for the residents of Jagüey Grande, municipality, who are passing through the fourth outbreak of COVID-19.

For several days now, the number of confirmed cases has been progressively increasing, which is why in the territory the capacities to care for patients positive to SARS-CoV-2 have been expanded.

Currently the municipality has five consultations for the care of Acute Respiratory Infections (ARI) and the performance of antigen tests: one in the rehabilitation room of the 7 de Diciembre polyclinic, and the same number in Torriente, Agramonte, San José de Marcos and Australia. In addition, the consultation of the Iluminado Rodríguez hospital is added.

The concern is greater due to the increase in cases in pediatric ages as well. For this purpose, a room was set up for the care of positive minors with mild or asymptomatic manifestations of the disease, in the Rayitos de Libertad children’s center, in the town of Jaguey. The extension of the pediatric ward of the Iluminado Rodríguez hospital has 22 capacities.

The four largest health centers in the municipality will also be joined by another four with more than 100 capacities each. Work is currently underway to complete the repair of the facilities that will receive the first patients in the coming days, and medical supplies, beds, mattresses and other items are being received.
