North Rhine-Westphalia makes 80 ic beds available for the Netherlands |...

“At the moment none of these beds are occupied,” said the ministry. The corona virus is currently spreading rapidly in the Netherlands. The situation in hospitals is considered threatening. Supply shortages have already forced some hospitals in major cities to temporarily close their emergency departments.

Foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD) confirmed Germany’s willingness to re-admit corona patients from other EU countries. “If there are bottlenecks in the care of corona patients in our neighbors, we will of course provide assistance quickly, if our capabilities allow it,” he said Saturday.

Other German states have also agreed to accept patients from neighboring EU countries. Lower Saxony, for example, has also declared itself willing to help the neighboring country of the Netherlands. According to information from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, there are also talks between Bavaria and the Czech Republic. According to the information, the EU will provide EUR 220 million for cross-border transport of patients, equipment and staff.

The National Coordination Center for Patients Distribution announced on Sunday that there is currently still sufficient bed capacity to receive patients in the Netherlands.
