Where are the numbers?
The Daily Bed Occupancy Report is reported daily based on the state government website, which is updated by each hospital. However, the numbers change countless times during the same day. Since the regulation is in effect throughout the state, that is, patients are transported from one municipality to another, sometimes the bed is empty but is filled within hours or even minutes. Hospitals report that with the high prices the beds fill up quickly, but the update on the website is not at the same pace. This is why it is so common for the map to indicate an occupancy of 90% or 95% and there are patients waiting. This is justified because there are more patients on the waiting list than empty beds.
