The help team asks residents for care and prevention
On December 1, 21 cases of flu-like symptoms were treated, but on December 27 that number rose to 80, four times more, in the influenza unit of Humanitas Unimed Hospital.
For this reason, the care team alerts residents about maintaining care and preventing disease. “Care must be maintained, we have seen a significant increase in flu-like symptoms, especially in emergency care,” says Polyana Lucinda Bussi, hospital director.
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 informs: “We should not panic, but this is a delicate time. Like any other virus, influenza is preventable.”
How to prevent influenza and Covid-19:
- wearing a mask
- Whenever possible, sanitize your hands with soap and water or 70% alcohol
- Keep the distance. If you can’t find it, hold for longer and avoid hugs and handshakes
- Do not share personal items (glasses, cutlery, plates, toothbrushes, etc.)
