The Regional Minister of Health, Juan José Pedreño, has confirmed, after the meeting of the Covid Committee of the Region of Murcia, the return of “face-to-face care for patients in health centres”. This measure has been adopted as a result of the drop in the incidence of coronavirus cases in recent times.
In this way, it has been decided to eliminate the restrictive measures for health centres so that “from next week” they will no longer have the phases of the alert levels of the primary care teams.
Also, Pedreño said, from the Murcian Health Service (SMS) are going to start working with the various health areas “to implement this measure” in the various medical centres in the region.
For their part, the area Covid groups “will continue to collaborate with the air care teams” in all those pathologies related to the coronavirus. In this way, the minister argued, the health centres will “continue and intensify their activity” with the rest of the diseases.
In this respect, Pedreño maintained that the regional government “has not spared” in making available to the health system “the necessary resources for the care system in each case”.
These announcements were made by the minister after verifying “the improvement in the epidemiological situation” and hospital admissions which, in the Region of Murcia, “are below the national average” with 7.04 percent of admissions to the ward and 10.09 percent of ICU beds occupied by patients affected by Covid-19.
Finally, Pedreño has once again called for prudence and to heed the health recommendations, while stressing that “we are still in a pandemic, this is not over”, which is why he has alerted the population so that “no one gets distracted”.
