Austria accepted two corona intensive care patients from Romania
Austria offered five places for the Romanian patients. Originally three people should have come. The transfer of a patient was canceled at short notice, so only two will arrive on Friday. You are expected to be admitted to the Mistelbach Hospital and the Horn Hospital.
Tyrol accepted patients from South Tyrol
Since Austria also benefits greatly from Romanian nationals – especially in medical and nursing tasks – Austria has offered to take on patients, explained the Ministry of the Interior. There have recently been similar renditions. According to the Ministry of the Interior, Tyrol temporarily admitted some Covid 19 patients from South Tyrol. In the past, there was also support after other disasters.
Patient takeover only if the patient so desires
Patient takeovers only happen if the patient so wishes, the Romanian state pays for the costs and if the persons concerned are able to be transported. “These are important support measures for us. Every life is important, we fight for the life of every single one of our fellow citizens, but we also have to be aware of the fact that we also have to help each other,” said the interim Romanian health minister Attila Cseke loudly Agerpres news agency.
Linhart promised Aurescu support with hospital beds
Foreign Minister Michael Linhart (ÖVP) promised his counterpart Bogdan Aurescu that he would support Austria with hospital beds in a phone call. “Of course we stand by our friends and partners in this difficult phase,” said Linhart. “As long as the pandemic is in the daily newspapers and not yet in the history books, we must make every effort together and help each other whenever necessary.”
