2,594 were hospitalized in hospitals on Thursday with confirmed COVID-19 diseases. We were much better at this time last year, a thousand fewer patients were hospitalized. The peak came at the beginning of March, when there were 3,836 patients in the hospitals, then the number of hospitalized people began to decline. Today we have set this record. The situation has changed radically this week. As many as 300 hospitalized people arrived in a single day on Monday.
The mayors of eight regional cities drew attention to the critical situation on Friday. “We would be very reluctant to have the situation we experienced during the first and second waves of the pandemic recur,” said the mayor of Žilina Peter Fabián.
Municipalities are ready to lend a helping hand to hospitals. They will need it because, according to the Ministry of Health’s forecast, we will have 3,000 patients in hospitals within two weeks. If we do not stop this growth, according to the Minister, it will lead to a significant reduction to the cessation of white medicine and further loss of life from not providing health care. According to Vladimír Lengvarský (OĽaNO nominee), exceeding the maximum from the second wave would mean a humanitarian crisis or catastrophe in Slovakia!

According to Marián Cehelník, the Humanitarian Aid Coordinator at Man, the humanitarian crisis is a situation where society cannot cope with the problem. Helping other countries is also at stake. “The state, ie the government, the Central Crisis Staff, should act first, but we citizens should also act. If we are not enough, we must take care of help to another country. “ Marián Cehelník, Humanitarian Aid Coordinator, explained what this would mean for Slovakia.
Lengvarsky emphasizes that the unvaccinated people end up in hospitals. “We have admitted 2,000 patients in the last seven days. Of these, 81 percent, ie 1,600, were not vaccinated. “ underlined the Minister.
Analysts also need to be implemented mainly in regions where people do not want to be vaccinated. The worst vaccinated Košice region has a high percentage and a high number of hospitalized positives, on the other hand the vaccinated regions of Bratislava, Nitra and Trnava are much better. “Bratislava has lower income numbers because it also takes some patients in difficulty from other regions,” analysts informed Data without pathos.
They calculated that if the east and north of Slovakia were vaccinated as the southwest, we would receive 25 fewer patients in the hospitals every day, no, unfortunately, the reality is different.
The situation is also critical in central Slovakia. There were only the last 5 free artificial lung ventilations in the Banská Bystrica region on Thursday. They are in the Banská Bystrica hospital. “All hospitals in the area – Zvolen, Žiar, Revúca, Rimavská Sobota, Brezno – are totally full,” said Milan Urbáni from the management of Roosevelt Hospital at a press conference. “While I was waiting here, the operations center called me twice to see if I could help. Unfortunately, I had to refuse because I can no longer help. And I don’t think anyone will be able to help us, “ described the situation.
