LIVE | Belgium asked the Netherlands to take over corona...

Belgium has asked the Netherlands to take over corona patients to ease the pressure on hospitals in the southern neighbors. For now, however, there is no place for them. “As Germany has helped us, we can do the same for Belgium, on the basis of reciprocity. But at the moment it is really difficult and we have to do our best to distribute patients within the Netherlands, ”says Ernst Kuipers, chairman of the National Acute Care Network.

The Netherlands is willing to help Belgium, Kuipers emphasizes, and he does not rule out the possibility that an individual patient crosses the border for help. “But it is difficult to accommodate. We both have an enormous challenge, ”says Kuipers.

Belgium is struggling with a large corona outbreak near Liège, just across the border from Maastricht. But the beds in Maastricht are also needed to receive patients from Amsterdam, for example, says Kuipers.

Kuipers does not comment on how Belgium submitted the request, but according to him, the question did not reach the National Coordination Center for Patient Distribution (LCPS).
