Corona: the coburg hospital builds ahead

The regiomed facilities are preparing for an emergency: "we must now prepare ourselves for the fact that we will be caring for a very large number of corona patients in a very short time – many of whom will require intensive medical care and even ventilation.", explains regiomed chief executive officer alexander schmidtke.

Coburg hospital took a first visible step on wednesday: tents were erected by the fire department in front of the main entrance. There, "corona triage" is performed on all incoming emergency patients the patient has been in a corona risk area in the past 14 days? Had contact with an infected person? Does he have corona symptoms?

Minimize risk

"In this way, suspected cases of corona can be identified before they enter the clinic and treated separately", says the deputy medical director of coburg hospital, rudolf bartunek. The goal is to minimize the risk of infection for staff and other patients. One tent is set up for adult patients, another for children "because they often have infectious diseases", as bartunek says.

Fewer corporate insolvencies in the first quarter

In the first three months of 2020, fewer companies went bankrupt in germany than in the previous year, despite the initial effects of the corona crisis.

4683 cases reported by local courts according to the federal statistical office. That was 3.7 percent fewer than in the first quarter of 2019, according to the wiesbaden-based authority.

The highest number of bankruptcies occurred in the retail sector, including the automotive industry, with 788. Companies in the construction industry filed for insolvency 761 times, while the hospitality industry filed for insolvency 514 times. Because many more major companies slipped into bankruptcy, the claims of the creditors, at around 7.3 billion euros, were significantly higher than the total for the previous year (4.7 billion euros).

Diepretzfelder rate also met at the cemetery to get a picture of the second phase of construction there. Main topics were the design of the center of the new urn circle and the design of the new gates at the main and side entrance. In 2016, a cross-generational concept had been decided upon. The first phase of construction included the rehabilitation of the paths.

After the inspection, the council met in the gymnasium. First mayor steffen lipfert () briefly summarized that in the public meeting of the market town council in january 2020, the design of the gates and the urn circle had already been on the agenda: "they were each postponed with the indication that a working group 'cemetery redesign' is to be formed, which is to submit proposals to the market town council for a final decision." In the meantime, an appeal had been published in the bulletin, because citizens were to have a say in the design of the site. In addition to steffen lipfert and landscape architect jorg czerwonka, only five other people attended the meeting of the working group, which, however, could not meet until may due to corona's situation.

Sculpture from the partner community

A worked natural stone is to form the center of the new urn circle. A foundation is to be built for this. "The idea came up that a sculpture from the partner community bretzfeld could be erected as a sign of friendship", lipfert presented and reported that he had made contact with the local art society. Proposals are now being worked out there, which will then be presented to the market town council. As a motive for the entrances, the members of the working group suggested that at the main entrance on the right wing of the gate there should be a sun and on the left wing an alpha and an omega.
