Pordenone, January 12 - Hospitals in the province of
Pordenone have been forced to suspend surgical operations
scheduled for Monday in order to cope with a flu epidemic,
sources said Friday.
The three hospitals - in Pordenone, San Vito al Tagliamento
and Spilimbergo - have had to make extra bed space available to
ensure the proper management of urgent flu cases, the sources
said.
"The decision was taken to cope with higher flows determined
by the peak in the flu epidemic, with chronic illnesses linked
to the virus becoming acute again, as well as an unusual
overload in surgical emergencies," health director Giorgio
Sclippa told ANSA.
He said that "for now", the measure only regarded Monday's
operations.
But it may be extended, he said, if the emergency were to
continue.
