According to information from the Secretary of Health, Márcio Manoel de Souza, the situation is critical and worrying. The recommendation is that the population seek the UPA in case of extreme need. “It is complicated and the numbers of infected people are constantly updated. We are in a pandemic and this can happen. We are trying to hire doctors urgently,” he said.

Also according to the secretary, all UBS in Sarandi have servers on leave because of covid-19, most nurses and doctors. Therefore, some services can be suspended at any time in these units and the recommendation is that residents seek the UPA or the Sarandi Specialty Center only in serious cases.
