The Latest Covid-19 wave has put Hospitals in parts of Germany under immense strain
All of Germany is one big outbreak the words of the head of the country’s disease control agency as the country’s leaders scramble to contain surging infection figures. On Thursday lawmakers approved a series of new measures to battle record Covid-19 infections. The health minister is warning that soon some hospitals would be able to cope with general emergency care and the army is preparing to fly patients abroad. Some of them spent the week threatening to Veto this law saying it didn’t go far enough.
But in the end Germany’s second chamber representing the states caved in and with the raise of a hand gave the new measures their vote of approval not a moment too soon across the capital. The health minister issued a sobering update on the bed shortage in hospitals. They are getting to a point now where they will have to transfer Covid patients. Not just within the same region but to other regions within Germany and quite possibly even abroad to neighboring countries beside him. The head of the country’s disease control body compared Germany to a vessel on course for collision. It’s as if a tanker is approaching a harbor wall the tanker is moving although. They are steering against it with full force. It will still move on for a while and it will probably hit the wall with the side. But hopefully not the front.
They have like beds sure and safe for the next four to five days and they will see afterwards if it’s getting better a little bit and if it’s getting a little constant to the constant because they like some people are healing faster than in the last waves.
