The Municipal Health System, Civil Protection (PC) and Fire Department of Maracaibo, received from the Bolivarian mayor, Willy Casanova, a total of 6 trucks, 2 ambulances, equipment and suits to strengthen the attention of the suspected and confirmed cases of the Covid- 19 in the municipality.
The delivery was made this Thursday in the Manuel Dagnino parish, in spaces of the Hotel Hospitalario Aeropuerto, one of those designated to isolate the suspected cases of coronavirus and returned compatriots under preventive and mandatory quarantine.
In this sense, the Mayor insisted on the importance of continuing the effort to succeed in the fight for life, which is being waged throughout the national territory, especially as a result of the outbreak registered in the Las Pulgas market.
Among the endowments, the delivery of 6 repowered vans stands out, which will guarantee care for the more than a thousand people who are confined in hospital hotels, specifically for their support in health, logistics and administration.
On the other hand, 2 ambulances were delivered. One of these is new, with advanced support, which functions as an Intensive Care Unit capable of circulating in the city. While the other is a repowered basic support unit, which strengthens the Maracaibo Health system.
Similarly, a new rescue truck for Maracaibo Firefighters was arranged, along with 300 uniforms, hand tools, fire hoses, 600 biosafety suits and 120 pairs of boots.
The investment, in the order of 31,400 million sovereign bolivars, also included 1,500 masks, 100 face shields, 40 glove boxes and 6 sprayers to guarantee the care of the units delivered.
Mayor Casanova took the opportunity to call on the people of Maracaibo to collaborate by staying at home and respecting all the established security measures. “We want mobility to be minimal, zero, to effectively cut the propagation line,” he said.
He remarked that, the sooner the people infected in the mass screening sessions are captured and the preventive isolation is applied, the sooner Maracaibo will leave the state of focus of contagion in which it is.
