“During the coronavirus crisis, hospitals around the world are facing immense challenges. There are partly not enough hospitals and those which care for coronavirus patients are overburdened and not well suited for the task.
Wards for the treatment of COVID-19 patients are being set up in hospitals. Containers are being installed, and recently people have started to talk of lazarettos, emergency and temporary hospitals again. And hospitals are being built in fast motion; in Wuhan, a new hospital building was constructed in less than two weeks.
It is obvious: a hospital construction deficit is becoming apparent during the pandemic.”
These were the introductory words of Anneliese Tenisch on SRF radio on April 27.
