According to Marie Jinder, director of the medical clinic, the situation is very difficult. The hospital currently has eleven patients with covid-19.
– We have no beds available, Jinder told SVT.
The infectious disease department has therefore been closed to prevent visitors from coming and visiting patients. The cafeteria is also closed, all in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus. To deal with this urgent situation, departments are working together to place patients where beds are available.
In addition, the orthopedic department has canceled scheduled surgeries. In addition, there are staff absences due to illness.
