Covid-19 continues to attack, but symptoms are mild in patients
Sampling stations are receiving more and more people with Covid-19 symptoms. Elieser tapia
Santo Domingo. -The Covid virus is still active in the population, and more people are turning to sample stations to confirm or rule out whether they contain the virus.
However, most of those infected do not merit hospitalization due to the mild symptoms of the ómicron variant.
And is that the boom in cases in recent weeks has increased the demand for tests in those positions that previously looked empty.
After 10:00 a.m. yesterday, at the Santo Socorro Maternal and Child Hospital, he had already performed about 100 PCR tests while people continued to arrive.
Meanwhile, the one that works in the Ministry of Public Health (MSP) was full of people looking to know their diagnosis and continued to arrive more people.
Incredibly, many of the attendees at the sampling stations for the detection of Covid-19 do so without masks, so the health personnel provide them since they can not be in the place without the mask. It should be noted that some took advantage of the fact that the inoculation station is operating in the same place to apply their dose of the anti-covid vaccine.
In centers such as those in Santo Socorro and Plaza Central, they were only performing PCR tests, the results of which are delivered within 24 hours.
The health staff explained that people are coming with symptoms, and for travel reasons.
They also indicated that they were seeing more positive cases than last week, in addition to receiving groups from companies where a collaborator tested positive.
The Deputy Minister of Public Health, Robinson Díaz, when asked about some schools that have closed due to outbreaks of the virus, indicated that educational establishments are the safest place for children and that from that ministry, the closure of these has not been ordered.
