To ensure assistance to the population, the City of Belo Horizonte opened this Monday, January 24, 40 more COVID-19 Infirmary beds in the SUS-BH Network. Since the beginning of January, 358 Infirmary beds have been opened by the Municipality, going from 220 to 578. It is important to reinforce that patients with flu, still without results for COVID-19, can also be hospitalized in the ICU and Infirmary beds dedicated to the disease, as the symptoms are similar.

The Municipal Health Department monitors the epidemiological and assistance numbers of the disease on a daily basis and any aggravation that compromises the ability to provide care will be treated properly.
