According to specialist doctors, there are almost no patients vaccinated against Covid-19 without previous illnesses in intensive care units in Germany.
Most of them were not vaccinated at all or not completely vaccinated, said the President of the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine, Marx, the editorial network Germany. The vaccinated minority consists largely of older patients whose second vaccination was a long time ago. As a rule, these people would also suffer from serious chronic illnesses. Marx described the current capacities in the intensive care units as relatively stable.
At the moment, there are around 1,300 cases nationwide and there are an average of two free beds per location. However, forecasts for the coming months are hardly possible.
