District brakes hopes

However, the district administration is wary of overly optimistic interpretations and assumes “underreporting” because many people – especially those with a mild course of the disease – only test and isolate themselves with a rapid test.

Few free beds in intensive care units

Yesterday, the Divi intensive care register reported two Covid patients in intensive care from the hospitals in the lake district. They make up around three percent of the total number of intensive care beds. However, with the return of the clinics to normal operations and the resumption of previously suspended treatments, there are signs of increasing utilization of the intensive care units. In the Bonhoeffer Clinic in Neubrandenburg, for example, all 24 intensive care beds were occupied yesterday – with postoperative or acute cases. Across the district, 58 of 66 intensive care beds were occupied – almost 88 percent.
