After a corona outbreak with three deaths in the facility, a former nursing home employee has to answer before the Hildesheim Regional Court for negligent homicide, among other things. The 46-year-old is also accused of negligent bodily harm and forgery of documents.
She is said to have faked a double vaccination against Covid-19 by presenting a fake vaccination card. In November 2021, she is said to have been infected with Corona herself unnoticed and, as a so-called everyday companion, triggered a chain of infection in the Hildesheim home.
Defense attorney Velit Tümenci said after the indictment was read on Tuesday that his client would not provide any information on the matter. However, the lawyer presented a personal statement from the accused about their living situation. In it, the woman emphasizes that she is not a corona denier. Her often violent partner got vaccination cards for the whole family, she couldn't resist. "My client had no contact with the deceased," emphasized the defense attorney. "Unfortunately, death is an everyday companion in a retirement home."
