The Municipal Health Department (SMS) opens, this Saturday (28), ten health facilities (see full list below) for prompt care for cases of moderate respiratory symptoms. The units were readapted to serve this public, due to the seasonal increase in cases of respiratory diseases and active cases of covid-19. Currently, according to the most recent bulletin on covid-19, Curitiba has 11,500 active cases, that is, people capable of transmitting the disease.

The ten units will be open this Saturday from 8 am to 5 pm. The measure also helps to leave the Emergency Care Units (UPAs) for more serious, urgent and emergency cases. The recommendation is that the user seeks, preferably, the unit of his Sanitary District.

Nine units will serve all age groups (children, teenagers and adults, the elderly). The Ouvidor Pardinho Health Unit exclusively serves adolescents, adults and the elderly.

This Saturday, these ten health units will treat only moderate cases of people with respiratory symptoms. No other routine visits will be carried out and vaccination will not be carried out.

when to look

Those who present moderate symptoms such as: fever (equal to or above 37.8 ºC) for more than 24 hours or who do not improve with the use of antipyretics should look for one of these ten units; vomiting that does not improve with medication; weakness, feeling short of breath, rapid breathing, wheezing. The use of a mask is recommended in these places.

Check here which symptoms are considered mild, moderate and severe and where to seek care.

The SMS guides that, at the appearance of respiratory symptoms, the person should immediately adopt the use of the face mask, even inside the house, to avoid the transmission of diseases such as flu, covid-19, cold, to other people.
