German Doctors Covid-19-Sick save in Romania: It counts only to heal people

At the Siloam hospital in Pforzheim, Germany, has treated Dr. Thushira Weerawarna already French Covid patients were brought from the neighbouring country to Germany. Now he has traveled to other European countries in the fight against Corona: at the County hospital in Brasov (German: Kronstadt) in Romania, the head physician supported the Romanian colleagues - together with his Team from the Department of pneumology at the Siloam hospital.

His commitment to Romania started even before the re-opening of the borders in Europe: He donated money for the German-Romanian company in Pforzheim, which is headed by the native Kronstädterin Oana Krichbaum.

by Using the donations, the Association was able to bring this week of medical equipment to the value of 120,000 euros to Kronstadt. This campaign is not a one-way street – the Team of Doctors from Pforzheim, Germany would learn from the experience of the Romanian colleagues, says Dr. Thushira Weerawarna in an interview with DW.

"If we were to work in each of the countries individually, we would be with our Worries in Germany and the Romanians with their Concerns here." The European community provides a structure that facilitates the Transfer of aid from one place to another.

Two Doctors-Teams with different experience

However, this structure needs to be improved, said the CDU-politician Gunther Krichbaum, who came together with the German Team of Doctors and his Romanian-born wife, Oana Krichbaum to Romania.

"Just at the beginning of the crisis of the European idea was a little noticeable. It was rather so that each member state believed to be able to be alone in this crisis. That was a big fallacy," says the Chairman of the Europe Committee in the Bundestag in the DW. "Countries such as Spain, Italy and France were initially left alone. Today, it's different."

However, hardly a basis for Action exists for the European Commission, "because the health policy - is not pooled in the difference, for example, to the agricultural policy. That is, the individual national member States have to transfer to the EU the actually skills, so that they can act differently in the future, and powerful".

The Department for Covid-patients on the intensive care unit of the hospital in Brasov was directly after the start of the Corona-crisis set up. 123 Covid-patients were treated here.

Now, the Team of Doctors from the German city of Pforzheim in use there - side-by-side with the Romanian colleagues. "For me, it is great to see how engaged, eager to learn and curious about the Romanian team," says Dr. Thushira Weerawarna, who comes from Sri Lanka.

patients are now being treated together, in addition, there are many Workshops: About Dr. Cristina Vecerdi, head of the emergency Department of the Romanian hospital, is delighted: "There are two Doctors-Teams with different experiences. During the pandemic, we were isolated up to now in a sense.

now, However, these different experiences come together: This German Team, with its experience and the technical equipment that it has provided to us, expands our diagnostic capabilities. And the helps, the consequences of infection for the patients."

More than 1,100 new infections in 24 hours

Not only in Romania but also in Germany we are still at the beginning of the path when it comes to understanding this new disease and to combat it, explained Dr. Weerawarna.

The new information about the Coronavirus spread by the world health organization and various trade journals and online, in addition, there are a lot of webinars for professionals.

However, "nothing replaces the direct experience and interpersonal exchange," says the Romanian Doctor, Dr. Cristina Vecerdi. "If the findings of the Doctors from Pforzheim, which is part of other diagnostic procedures as we, our, together, it is in the interest of patients - and also in the interest of science."

In Romania, the number of the Corona increases infections strong again, on Thursday, the authorities reported a new record of 1.112 million new infections within 24 hours. The County of Brasov is one of the regions with particularly many infections. Since the beginning of the pandemic, European state have died in the Southeast 2.126 people Covid-19. Nevertheless, there are in a public space to voices that claim to be the Coronavirus was so bad, or it don't exist.

Of Corona-skeptics and conspiracy theorists - whether in Romania or in Germany - Dr. Weerawarna but do not be discouraged: "there is Something always, in all countries. It is not a human reaction that when people understand something and feeling restricted: someone must be to blame for it." But to him it is not a question of how the disease originated, but counting alone, "to heal the people".

"It will take a long time, until we overcome this pandemic," warns Dr. Cristina Vecerdi, the experienced Director of the emergency Department day-to-day suffering of the patients and their families.

"The statistical data of the authorities are correct. Important we not only Doctors, but the company is how we deal with this crisis in total. If the population keeps to a few simple measures - such as the mask duty and the hands will come and wash less Covid patients in critical condition in our intensive care units."
