– We are in a very serious situation; a lot of new covid patients need medical treatment in hospital. It’s difficult as there isn’t enough staff, says Regional Director Alf Jönsson in a press release.

– I, therefore, want to appeal once again to everyone in Skåne to act responsibly and follow the restrictions so that we can stop the spread of infection, he says.

At CSK, the number of patients with covid-19 continues to increase.
