The reopening is scheduled for 08:00 on Monday.

“During the periods of restriction, the delivery room will be in operation for patients and parturients who are admitted to Braga Hospital,” the statement added.

“The board of directors of Braga Hospital is committed to providing excellent health care and is constantly trying to put together the necessary conditions to guarantee permanent access to the Gynecology and Obstetrics Emergency Service, minimizing the possible impact on pregnant patients in the region,” the statement said.
