Latvian healthcare disaster, part 3

According to this article (Latvian, Google translation), Riga 1st hospital will be only able to treat 10 emergency patients per day:

According to the 2009 plan of VOAVA (the Latvian government agency that
contracts with hospitals), there will be money for treating 16,000 patients.
Since 14,070 patients have already been treated until July 15, this means that,
in the 169 days until the end of the year, the hospital can treat 11.6 patients
per day.

The healthcare tragedy gets worse every day.
