The number of people infected with corona continues to increase significantly. There are as many people admitted to CSK for Covid-19 now as there was earlier this summer. The hospital is preparing to take in even more.
In the last ten days, the number of people infected with COVID-19 has increased significantly in Skåne. And more people have been admitted to hospitals.
Infection Control Doctor Eva Melander says:
– It’s a very worrying development. I really want to emphasise the importance of everyone following the recommendations that we have.
– Continue to keep your distance, wash your hands often and don’t meet other people if you have symptoms. It’s good if you can work from home and also think about keeping a distance if you need to travel by bus and train.
