Less than 1% Hospitalized in Rio de Janeiro with COVID-19

Today, in public hospitals (municipal, state, federal, and other Unified Health System facilities) of Rio de Janeiro, only 30 people are hospitalized with COVID-19, according to the Municipal Health Secretariat. This is the lowest level since the fourth week of March 2020, that is, since the second week of lockdown measures in response to the pandemic in the city.

In addition to those hospitalized, 124 alleged post-covid patients remain in hospitals. At the peak of the pandemic, in April this year, coronavirus patients occupied more than 1,500 beds in local wards and intensive care units. This is reported by Rede TV !, a TV BRICS partner.

Currently, COVID-19 patients make up only 0.5% of the total 6,600 beds occupied in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

The Municipal Health Secretariat announced via Twitter that there are no more patients hospitalized with covid in the city’s public hospitals.

“Obviously, we should thank citizens for this, for their complete vaccination and willingness to take or having taken a second dose,” the Health Secretariat said in their statement.

Rio de Janeiro Municipal Health Secretary Daniel Soranz has launched the COVID-19 Mega Vaccination campaign to reduce the number of people who have not yet get a second shot.

“There are almost 600 thousand people left in Rio de Janeiro who need to take a second dose. More than 380 thousand teenagers can already get the second vaccination. It is very important to complete vaccination,” the secretary said.
