Governor of the South Moravian Region Grolich: Declare a state of emergency, hospitals are full

The situation in South Moravian hospitals is without exception critical. All operations were completely stopped in Kyjov on Monday. It has a full ARO. Elsewhere, planned interventions are drastically curtailed.

Clinics call soldiers and firefighters to the sick. A single and fundamental problem for all is the lack of medical staff.

Patients are already being transported elsewhere

“We use eight soldiers and four firefighters. We would need more of them. We limit the operation of the hospital, including ambulances, across disciplines, so that we can use some of the staff in the care of hospitalized people, “ said Dana Lipovsk√°, a spokeswoman for the University Hospital at St. Anne’s.

The hospital in Kyjov has had a difficult weekend. The declaration of emergency was averted there only by taking the patients with the covid elsewhere. “It is only a matter of time before all South Moravian hospitals declare their own state of emergency,” Grolich told Blesk.cz.

The governor is calling for an emergency

Grolich would consider a possible state of emergency due to another wave of the coronavirus pandemic to be a logical step. According to him, the situation is critical and the outlook unfavorable. According to him, the state of danger declared by the region does not solve anything – one of the largest regions of the republic is moaning on a large scale.
