For Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD) it is a question of solidarity to help the Italian patients.

Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania will take care of six intensive care patients from Italy. The country is thus responding to a request from the German Embassy in Italy and from Federal President Steinmeier, said Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD) after a conference call by the cabinet. Italy is the country most affected by the Corona pandemic. The patients are to be treated in the university clinics in Rostock and Greifswald and at Helios in Schwerin; the treatment may also be combined at one location. Schwesig also said it was a matter of solidarity to help now. In addition, doctors could better prepare for possible cases in the country if they had experience in dealing with the seriously ill.

No all-clear for Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania

The Prime Minister has not yet given the all-clear in the Corona crisis. Any debate about easing the measures would come too soon. The goal is to further reduce contacts in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. It was agreed with the federal government to talk about the effects of the measures after Easter. The State Chancellery also made it clear that when visiting families from other federal states, the so-called nuclear family is primarily meant – i.e. children, parents and grandparents. Only these could visit each other, but should keep this to a minimum.

In the 13 corona test centers in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, tests will also be carried out on weekends in the future, said Schwesig. Around 11,500 tests have been carried out so far – 244 reported cases are currently reported in the country.
