Fürstenfeldbruck - The technical relief agency, the Malteser and the Bavarian Red Cross Fürstenfeldbruck work well together even in the crisis: A medical tent was set up in front of the district clinic in Fürstenfeldbruck. Patients who are suspected of being infected with the coronavirus are to be examined there - these patients should be collected there before they enter the clinic. The aim is to isolate the infected as quickly as possible. This is to protect other sick people and the staff of the clinic.

The tent was erected on behalf of the district office. For this, emergency services from the Technical Relief Agency (THW) built a wooden foundation on a green area in front of the Fürstenfeldbruck Clinic. The so-called caution tent was set up on top of it. Aid came from the Malteser Aid Service Gröbenzell and the BRK Fürstenfeldbruck. The personnel who are supposed to work in the tent come from the emergency room of the district clinic.

The tent is primarily used to better organize patients. Affected people with signs of Covid-19 can be optimally cared for here. In addition, those responsible ensure that the risk of dealing with the infected is reduced.

District Administrator Thomas Karmasin (CSU) emphasized on Saturday in social media that the population did not have to panic because of the tent. Under no circumstances will patients be placed here for whom there is no hope. But patients can be isolated in the tent so that the infection chain is interrupted. Karmasin: “Thank God we have prepared enough beds in the clinic to care for corona patients. Intensive beds and ventilators are also still available, so please do not panic. ”He thanked the emergency services for setting up the tent quickly.
