The corona traffic light is still green across Bavaria. But now the situation is also coming to a head at the Erding Clinic.
Erding – “All intensive care beds are occupied, 40 percent with Covid patients”, reported clinic director Dr. Dirk Last on Wednesday afternoon. “The significantly increasing incidence can now also be felt in our house, especially since we are struggling with sick leave,” Last continued.

However, one works well with the neighboring houses “in order to be able to initiate the necessary relocations quickly”. Emergency care is guaranteed in any case. “Doctors and nurses do everything possible to cope with the high number of patients in the best possible way,” said the director.
The number of Covid patients at the Erdinger Klinikum increased by six to 17 in one day. Four are in the intensive care unit, three must be artificially civil servants, says spokeswoman Claudia Fiebrandt-Kirmeyer.
Meanwhile, the highly dynamic infection process continues to increase. 74 new cases were reported on Wednesday alone, spread across 23 of 26 municipalities – 25 more than a week ago. Although the incidence has decreased slightly from 228.2 to 220.3, it is now likely to rise sharply again.
