WILLEMSTAD - The management of the Curaçao Medical Center (CMC) will meet this week to discuss a possible restart of the non-emergency operations. These were shut down last month due to the large influx of covid patients in the hospital. This is according to Germaine Gibbs of the CMC.
The reason for the positive news is the declining trend in the number of infections in the last days and the stabilization in hospital admissions, says Gibbs. However, she said this when yesterday's figures were not yet known, namely an increase of 11 new patients. There are currently 106 patients in the CMC, 37 of whom are in intensive care.
Another positive sign is that more and more Curaçaoans are also getting vaccinated. More than 70,000 people have now registered and of these, almost 56,000 people have already had their first injection.
