The system here in Honduras is still not able to provide for the needs of the people. When a person is to sick to stay at home we transport them to a place called Triage in the capital. It is here that they sort out the people according to how ill they are and where there are beds in the socialized hosptial system.
Last Wednesday we had such a patient that we transported to triage. They had run out of beds in the local hospitals so they have established covid beds in a sports complex in the Tegucigalpa. Eventually as beds empty out the patient is moved to one of the hospitals.
There are still many deficiencies in the system. We hope to continue to support the health care facilities in this country as well as keep the clinic up and running for people with needs here in the town of Santa Ana.
