Prague - The coronavirus pandemic had calmed down in many countries over January, and the situation in Germany also seemed to relax for a while.

Corona in the Czech Republic: The situation is worsening - doctors are taking desperate measures

The hospitals in the Czech Republic reported a record number of Covid 19 patients on Wednesday.

A total of 8162 people are treated as inpatients.

This is the highest value ever recorded in the country during the corona pandemic.

The local Ministry of Health confirmed on Wednesday.

These included more than 1,660 particularly severe cases that


require

artificial

ventilation.

In the administrative region of Pardubice in Eastern Bohemia, an emergency plan was activated because the hospital capacity was completely exhausted.



To get the corona pandemic and the overflowing hospitals under control, doctors are now taking unexpected measures.

In view of the desperate situation, largely untested drugs are now to be used on a trial basis.

10,000 packs of the anti-parasitic drug ivermectin arrived at the University Hospital in Brno.

Prime Minister Andrej Babis had advocated this personally: "We say that we cannot wait for clinical studies, let's try that."
