The Municipality of Bragança is installing a tent to support the Local Health Unit of the Northeast (ULSNE) in carrying out screening tests at Covid-19.
The equipment, which will start operating on Monday afternoon (November 2), seeks to respond to ULSNE’s logistical needs, at a time when the city’s Health Centers, in addition to Covid-19 tests, are in the flu vaccination campaign, not guaranteeing users the necessary safety conditions.
“In view of the 2nd wave of the pandemic and the need to mitigate the effects of the pandemic, the Municipality reiterates, on the ground, its readiness to collaborate with all the competent entities, for the sake of the health of all brigantines”, says Hernâni Dias, Mayor of Bragança, stressing “the importance that this equipment may have in the development of the county’s epidemiological situation, since testing is the best strategy to contain the transmission of the virus”.
It should be noted that the tests on Covid-19, to be carried out in the tent installed by the Municipality next to the Pavilhão Municipal Arnaldo Pereira (at Av. Dom Sancho I), will be the responsibility and the exclusive prescription of the Public Health authorities.
