The cases have been increasing approximately five weeks ago, from five to six weeks ago, and progressively we see that the ICU beds they get busy. The minister pointed out that 60% of the ICU beds They are busy and that there is also an increase in the rate of positivity of the cases and this can be found in the indicators that the country is showing”, He expressed.
