The owner of the unit, Gabriel O’Shea Cuevas, explained that if we continue the contagion trend of recent weeks «you can have a scenario of general saturation in the care of COVID-19 in the entity», as several hospitals are already saturated.
«The most significant (hospitals) of the Institute of Health of the State of Mexico (ISEM) show occupancy figures above 90%, so the risk of the entity returning to red light is imminent if the population insists on not using cover covers, conducting social gatherings and leaving home,» he said.
The Edomex Ministry of Health called for solidarity with health personnel who nearly 10 months after the epidemic «are exhausted, but standing on the front line of attention to this new disease.»
