Hospitals in Latin America Are Starting to Allow Visits to COVID Patients

Read Time:28 Seconds

Argentina, Brazil, and Chile are some of the countries in Latin America allowing relatives to visit patients with COVID-19. Particularly in Buenos Aires, the Mater Dei Sanatorium allows relatives, wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), to be with terminally ill COVID-19 patients. This allowed Augusto Briceño, a 59-year-old pediatrician, to hug his mother right before she died. He said he closed his eyes and tried to forget the gloves were there. These exemptions are becoming more and more common in the United States and Europe as well.
