The intensive care units of the Emil-von-Behring-Klinikum in Zehlendorf, the Humboldt-Klinikum (Borsigwalde) and the Auguste-Viktoria-Klinikum (Schöneberg) are working to capacity according to a register of the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive and Emergency Medicine. Corona sufferers in the capital city are no longer admitted there.

Besides, the "Berliner Morgenpost" reports that the St. Marien hospital in Lankwitz may be started again by rescue services and ambulances only at the beginning of the coming week. Also, the Vivantes hospital in Neukölln is considering a stop of admissions.

The hospitals in Berlin are the first hospitals in Germany to be overloaded and close their emergency rooms.

I like sports and food.
