Aboard a helicopter, on the roof of Mannheim Hospital, in Germany, a French patient from Colmar (Haut-Rhin), aged 64, is cared for by the nursing staff. He is still in intensive care, in a stable state. Large-scale medical evacuation since 49 beds have been made available in German hospitals.
31 patients have already been transferred. “When our neighbors are in a crisis, we are happy to help them, it is in the spirit of European cooperation and it is an act of humanity”says Thomas Kirschning, a German emergency doctor. Three resuscitation rooms are ready to receive French patients. For hospitals in the Grand-Est, this aid is essential and should be further increased. Germany has 25,000 places for resuscitation, all equipped with respirators.
