#According to the figures presented by #Dr. #Ruy López #Ridaura, #General #Director of the #National #Center for #Preventive #Programs and #Disease #Control, the #Network of SARI (#Serious #Acute #Respiratory #Infection) #Beds reported the 50% availability in general beds for the care of patients diagnosed with COVID-19. #That is to say, that of the 29,725 beds without mechanical respiratory support installed throughout the republic, only 15,011 have been occupied, which is equivalent to 50 percent. #In that way, there is still the 14,714 beds available general.

#On the other hand, regarding beds destined to intensive care for patients diagnosed with respiratory disease, the report presented a 57% availability, which equates to 5,755 free mechanical ventilator beds. #Thus, of the 10,184 beds dedicated to the care of critically ill patients, 4,429 are occupied, that is, 43% of the total nationwide.

#Currently, the hospital occupation nationwide has registered the care of 19,440 patients. #In that way #Until #December 29, 2020, the figure was 7 points above the maximum occupancy reached (18,223 patients hospitalized for COVID symptoms). #In this sense, López #Ridaura stressed that the presence of #Mexico #City, the #State of #Mexico, #Hidalgo and #Guanajuato is an indicator of the situation that the #Megalopolis is going through.
