Addition of sanitary resources

The hospital system will add 400 hospital beds, 70 doctors and 600 nurses. The Emergency Medical Care System (SAME) will incorporate six ambulances. 300 hotel beds have been booked as well; this will be progressive until we reach the peak of the needs (about 2,000 beds).

The Centers are specifically designed to detect if other people than those who have the suspicious symptoms could be infected with the virus. The objective is the early detection of asymptomatic cases of coronavirus.
