Currently, a total of 120 people remain hospitalized with covid-19, of which 97 are in Intensive Care Units (ICUs). A completely different pattern in the earlier days of the pandemic, when a small percentage of the hospitalized needed an Intensive Care Unit.

The Ministry of Health notes although the numbers of cases are low, the guard against covid-19 should not be lowered. That includes getting vaccinated or completing the vaccination scheme, and other measures such as frequent washing of hands and using a mask when necessary.

Regarding the measures, given the current crisis that exists in the Hospital Nacional de Niños (National Children’s Hospital) –  non-covid serious respiratory infections in children – the Ministry of Health announced the mandatory use of the mask in schools and public transit between October 17 and 31; and recommended only, not ordered, the use of the mask by the population at greatest risk.
