Health extensions reopen “soon”

THE chamber, through the president, Carlos Monteiro, and the councilwoman Diana Rodrigues, said to DIÁRIO AS BEIRAS, which has information from Regional Health Administration of the Center (ARSC) according to which health extensions closed within the scope of the human Resources to the program to combat pandemic reopen on Monday, 25. However, contacted by DIÁRIO AS BEIRAS, ARSC does not commit to dates.
“The Grouping of Health Centers (ACES) of Baixo Mondego, in the scope of the resumption of the ongoing assistance activity, foresees the reopening of the referred health units soon, in the strictest for the safety of users and professionals”, replied the ARSC. And he noted: “The process of returning to normality is gradual and presupposes some readjustments in terms of human resources and security, and ACES is making efforts so that the resumption of assistance activity takes place in the shortest possible time.”
The extensions of Santana (Ferreira-a-Nova parish), Bom Sucesso, Marinha das Ondas, Mallorca and Vila Verde have been closed for about two months. Users have been referred to the nearest health units, with transportation guaranteed by the municipality for users with economic insufficiency.
In Marinha das Ondas, trips to Paião are assured by the junta, because in the parish resides a community of Asians, mostly Nepalese, whose social inclusion process has not yet been completed. In addition, foreign workers represent about 10 percent of residents.
