According to the official, this register "is being worked on in all the provinces of the country", and in the coming days the general balance will be carried out.
"This register is being worked on in all the provinces of the country, hence the general balance will be made in the next few days", said Sílvia Lutucuta, quoted in a note from the Ministry of Health, which VerAngola had access to.
Speaking within the scope of a set of visits carried out this Sunday to the capital's reference hospital units, with emphasis on Américo Boavida, Josina Machel, Lucrécia Paim, do Prenda, Pediátrico David Bernardino and Materno Infantil Azancot de Menezes, the minister lamented the several cases of trauma, with emphasis on physical aggression, use of bladed weapons and car accidents.
In addition, "during New Year's Eve, hospitals also registered diseases linked to hypertensive crises, diarrhea, decompensated diabetes, respiratory complications and malaria in adults and children", reads the statement.
In the early hours of New Year's Eve, the Lucrécia Paim maternity hospital performed 75 deliveries, with the holder of the Health portfolio making it known that the neonatology services at the Materno Infantil Hospital "have been able to save newborns with low weight and ventilated".
"Within so much pressure in this unit, what satisfies us is that the professionals are providing better services. Newborn babies with low weight have been surviving. They are at high risk", said the holder of the Health portfolio, adding that due to covid-19, citizens lived through two anomalous festive seasons, and in this court they released themselves excessively.
According to the statement, Sílvia Lutucuta also guaranteed that "the Ministry of Health is committed to continuing to strengthen primary health care and staff training".
