Romania to transfer Covid-19 patients to Germany
Romania will transfer patients with severe forms of Covid-19 to Germany, according to a decision of the Committee for Emergency Situations CNSU.
It has already transferred Covid-19 patients to Hungary, Poland, and Austria as the local healthcare system is struggling with the record-high number of patients in the fourth wave of the pandemic.
A team of German doctors arrived in Romania last week to identify the patients that could be transferred, the Embassy of Germany announced.
The transfer will be done using aircraft of the Romanian National Defense Ministry or the German Air Forces, according to the CNSU decision, available here.
