“This is the third consecutive vigil we have 80 new imports who need support and we do not have an intensive care unit to help them. When we start intubating, we need repression and we need staff we don’t have in the intensive care unit, we gave everything to the intensive care unit.
The army came in, private hospitals came in, but the top, or intensive care units, were full of despair. The state must take bolder measures, we must increase firepower, not half the measure. We cannot face a beast with half a measure (…) The dead have reached a three-digit number, what else can we call to reach a four-digit number? », mentioned and continued:
