MERIDA Yucatan: A total of 24 doctors and nurses from other states arrived in Yucatan to help the medical team fighting a fierce battle against the Covid-19 in the state’s hospitals.

This is the “COVID Brigade,” a group of specialists trained to provide care in states that are experiencing critical times, as was the case with Baja California and Mexico City.

In Yucatán, it has been emphasized that public hospitals have had several casualties due to personnel who have been infected. In addition to the fact that many elements are already suffering from the fatigue of months of work during the pandemic.

That is why this team of professionals offers support to create strategies to depressurize hospital saturation and attend to more patients.

The head of the IMSS in the state, Dr. Miriam Victoria Sanchez Castro, met with specialists, made up of doctors and nurses who have added capacity and knowledge in the management of crises arising from the health emergency by COVID-19.
