Coronavirus: Too many patients could collapse into care in Timis County

Christian Oancia said the Timis County health care system is on the brink of collapse, and if help is not sought within two to three days, collapse is inevitable. There is not enough space for intensive care in hospitals, they are unable to provide the treatment they need to patients in serious cases. The situation is also exacerbated by the continuing spread of the epidemic at a high rate, with no indication that the peak is approaching.

The hospital director also mentioned that the epidemiological situation in neighboring Hungary is much better due to the high vaccination rate among the population.

In Timi province, the infection rate rose to 7.81 per thousand on Sunday, and in Timisoara to 10.09 per thousand. The latter means that in the past two weeks, one in every hundred people in the city has been infected. The infection rate is close to ten per thousand in Bucharest (8.98) and in the Lvov province surrounding the capital (9.38). In Romania, only the provinces of Ziklerland, Hargitta and Covasna remained green, with an infection rate of less than 1.5 per thousand.
