How does a patient reach our hospital during Covid-times?

This is the procedure:

Yesterday 176 patients were treated at the Hospital Diospi Suyana.  Quite a number if you consider that the borders to the neighbouring provinces are still closed.  In order to keep the risk of infection at a minimum the routine contains some important measures:

  1. The patients stand in a long queue and have to keep a safety distance.
  1. During the interview that all patients have, we ask them about their current symptoms and whether they come from a possible Covid-hotstop.
  2. We measure the oxygen saturation and temperature of each patient.
  3. If there is even the slightest hint that the patient might have contracted Covid-19 a quick test is performed.
