According to the global television channel, several patients from a Rio hospital have been intubated by being attached to their beds without the appropriate sedatives. The municipality of Rio assured that alternative products were administered and that contention tools were used only when this was the recommendation of physicians.

Lots of sedatives were expected during the day in Rio, also said the municipality.
