Patients who fear they have contracted the corona virus should avoid GP surgeries as far as possible. This is to avoid infecting other patients in the waiting room. Family doctors now have the option of sending patients to a central office in coburg. To get tested, they do not even have to leave their car.
The site is located at the BRK marienhaus, gustav-hirschfeld-ring 1. An important step, as prof. Dr. Stefan piltz, medical director of "regiomed-coburg hospital, emphasizes. "We need to prevent infected patients from coming into the hospital itself in relevant numbers.", he explained during a press interview on thursday. This is to prevent patients or staff at the hospital from coming into contact with infected persons.
Coronavirus continues to spread
Even though the case of the first infected man in the county has not been confirmed, piltz says: "i am convinced that corona will not pass by the county of coburg." But he makes it clear that it is now important to slow down the spread so that the hospital's capacities are not overstretched.
