Given the uncontrolled rise in the number of coronavirus infections, Bavarian hospitals are warning of an impending increase in intensive care units and calling for stricter restrictions on contact in the Free State. “The current situation is much more dramatic than in Bavaria during the entire pandemic,” the managing director of the Bavarian Hospital Association, Roland Engehausen, told “Augsburger Allgemeine” on Friday.
“We hardly have any capacity,” Inghausen said. In Bavarian hospitals, even cancer operations have to be postponed indefinitely. Transporting patients to neighboring federal states is becoming more and more difficult.
The hospital representative said, “The number of infections must decrease so that we can implement the expected treatments that we are now delaying.” “We need a clear avoidance of contact,” Inghausen demanded. “Whether you call it shutdown or something else that is of secondary importance to us hospitals.”
The steps currently planned were not enough to limit the increase in the number of infections: “We do not currently see any sufficiently effective countermeasures that would bring us relief in clinics in the next two to four weeks,” the representative of the Bavarian Clinics warned. “And that makes the situation very tragic now and in the perspective of the next few weeks.”
