CSK closes covid-unit – ”Wonderful”
Last week the hospital closed the temporary covid unit that was opened in autumn. At that time pressure on the infectious disease wards was too great.
At most the hospital had 100 beds for covid-19 patients. Now they are being cared for in the infectious diseases unit and in intensive care.
”It all depends on the younger age-groups getting vaccinated”Johan Cosmo, hospital manager
The need for covid care has decreased. On Monday there were seven patients with covid-19 being treated at CSK., two weeks ago the figure was 16.
”I know they feel proud to have managed this”Johan Cosmo, hospital manager
Hospital manager John Cosmo says:
– This means that in the first place our staff can have their holidays during the summer. And that after the summer we can reduce the queue of patients who have had to wait for their treatment because of covid-19.
– But if we are to avoid a new wave of infection in the autumn, it all depends on the younger age-groups getting vaccinated.
Staff who have worked on the covid wards – what do they say?
– I've thanked them for all they have done. I know they feel proud to have managed this. And happy to be able to go back to the patients they are trained to take care of, says John Cosmo.
As from Tuesday and Wednesday more times for vaccination will be released. And now people in Skåne aged between 35 and 39 can book a time.
