Poland ready to receive Czech patients: Deputy Health Min

The Czech Health Ministry announced on Friday that the Czech Republic has initiated the international aid mechanism and asked Germany, Switzerland and Poland for help in hospitalizing patients suffering from coronavirus, as hospitals in the Czech Republic have overextended their capacity.

Deputy Health Minister Waldemar Kraska said that Poland has already helped Slovakia, which found itself in the same predicament, and that three Slovak patients are currently being treated in Poland. “We know that more patients will probably arrive,” added the minister.

Mr. Kraska went on to say that the Lower Silesia province, located near the border with the Czech Republic, designated some hospitals to receive Czech patients. The patients that are sent to Poland are usually in a serious medical condition and require the use of a respirator.

“We are waiting for a signal from the Czech Republic. We are ready to help,” assured the Minister.
