Because of Corona: Flowers end up in the trash
© Provided by Euronews Flower growers sound the alarm in many places: because sales have dropped drastically due to the Corona epidemic, the plants end up in the trash - for example in Portugal. That is why companies also have problems paying their employees. Vitor Araujo, a flower grower, says: "We are going through a very dramatic situation. We are seeing how our flowers cannot serve their purpose. Thousands end up in the trash. Sales have decreased by 90 percent, we are not selling anything.
The Corona treatment center on the Berlin exhibition grounds is to start with 84 beds. State Secretary of State Martin Matz (SPD) told the RBB on Friday. He does not expect any problems during the final review next week. So that the beds could be occupied, only the routine final examination by the health authority is pending. The building inspection had already taken place on May 11, the regulatory approval by the State Office for Health and Social Affairs on May 18, Matz said online according to the report by RBB24. Previously, the “Tagesspiegel” reported that the reserve hospital for Covid 19 patients announced in March was still lacking the operating license.
Cristiano Ronaldo donates intensive care units to hospitals
© picture alliance Engages in the fight against Corona at home: Cristiano Ronaldo. Cristiano Ronaldo joins the list of football professionals who are committed to fighting the corona pandemic. The Juventus Superstar equips hospitals with intensive care units in his home country Portugal. Together with its manager Jorge Mendes, CR7 is pushing the expansion of the intensive care units of two hospitals, as reported by the Portuguese media on Tuesday.
The number of beds can be expanded as required, explained Matz. The treatment center was divided into individual departments that could be put into operation one after the other. "It makes no sense at all to keep the staff permanently available for all beds and to fill all medication refrigerators, as long as we know that we don't have to put it into operation at the moment."
At the start, only two ventilators would be available for training purposes. However, it is not true that ventilation devices are missing in the converted exhibition hall, said Matz. "We wanted to avoid at all costs that delivering ventilators to the treatment center, where they are obviously not yet needed, would result in us taking away the equipment that they ordered from hospitals."
Corona: Patrick Lange suggests that the Ironman in Hawaii only be approved for professionals
Patrick Lange hopes for an Ironman in Hawaii. The two-time world champion also believes that the race will only take place with professionals. © DARRYL OUMI / EPA-EFE / REX Two-time Ironman world champion Patrick Lange believes that only pros will start this year in Hawaii due to the corona crisis. 60, 70 professionals would "bring significantly less risk of infection than if you put 2500 people at the start," said the 33-year-old in the ARD "sports show".
The personnel for the Corona treatment center are still missing in part. This is less true for doctors, but above all for nurses. According to the State Secretary, they should still be recruited to work on the exhibition grounds.
The chairwoman of the Berlin Left, Katina Schubert, said on Friday that the spread of the corona virus had been contained for the time being. "The threat from Covid-19 will remain for a few more months, which is why keeping a corona hospital seems sensible."
The health senator had to prepare this carefully and exhaust all possibilities when recruiting staff. The operation of other Berlin hospitals should not suffer from this. «It becomes clear once again that the shortage of nursing staff is a result of poor pay and working conditions. Without an upgrade of the professions in the healthcare sector, this problem will therefore not be resolvable in the long run. »
The new Corona reserve hospital was built in a trade fair hall within one month. Covid 19 patients are to be admitted here if there is no more space for them in the other clinics in the capital. Health Senator Dilek Kalayci (SPD) announced it in early April as an “intermediate model between hospital and field hospital”.
