A corona outbreak occurred in a psychiatric ward at the Hannover Medical School (MHH). 14 patients and eleven employees are currently affected, said a spokesman for the clinic on Saturday. He confirmed a report in the “Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung”. The origin of the infections is unclear, said the spokesman. None of the people affected is so seriously ill that he or she has to be ventilated.
All people working and treated in the area have been tested and will continue to be tested. The uninfected patients are in quarantine.
The station is in a separate building and has been isolated. No new patients would be admitted there.
The clinic managed to remain largely free of infections. (dpa / lni)
