Located at kilometre 27 (KM 27), in the province’s outskirt, the unit is readying to provide differentiated and humanized care to patients infected with the new coronavirus (SARS-COV-2), indicates a statement from the oil company to which ANGOP has had access.

The centre, the second in that municipality specifically for covid-19, in this first phase will have 30 beds for patients in differentiated care and an equal number for hospitalization of moderate cases.

According to the note, the new Viana Screening and Treatment Centre must strictly comply with all bio-safety measures with regard to personal protective equipment and standard processing instituted by the World Health Organization (WHO).

"The opening of this new space will allow the current Covid-19 Screening and Treatment Center, located in Building 2, near Girassol Clinic, to be deactivated, returning to its normal operation" - explains the note.

At this time, Angola registers 86 cases, of which four died, 18 recovered and 64 active, including a one-month-old baby and a two-month-old baby.
