The corona virus is forcing the federal government to amend the law. Health Minister Jens Spahn has just presented the legislative plans of the health cabinet in a press conference.

For every new intensive care treatment unit with artificial ventilation, hospitals are to receive a fat bonus of 50,000 euros. The clinics should also not be left with the additional costs for necessary protective equipment. For the period from April to the end of June, there should initially be a surcharge of 50 euros for each patient.

This is intended to create capacities for corona patients with more severe disease courses. In addition, the clinics should enable as many new intensive care beds as possible. The federal government calculates only for the compensation of the postponement of scheduled OPs with possible additional expenditure of 2.8 billion euros.
