Blumenau AGFs and ESFs are suspending elective consultations from Monday

From Monday (16) the municipality of Blumenau will temporarily suspend elective consultations in the Family Health Strategy (ESF) and the General Ambulance Family (AGF) units. The decision was made due to the daily increase in dengue and Covid-19 cases in the city. Maintain childcare and prenatal care.

The services of the ESF and AGF units, until otherwise specified, are primarily intended for the care of overlapping cases and cases of patients with suspected or confirmed cases of dengue and Covid-19.
