What impact does the 4th wave of infections have on hospitals?

Infection figures are rising again and more people are being hospitalised with Covid-19. DP MPs Gilles Baum and André Bauler asked the Minister of Health if medical treatments have already had to be postponed or cancelled and which hospitals are most affected.

« À en croire les dernières nouvelles, la quatrième vague d’infection par le virus du Covid19 est en plein développement. Il en résulte que le nombre d’hospitalisations va croissant quoique ce nombre reste bien en dessous de celui enregistré l’an dernier à la même époque – en raison des vaccinations réalisées durant 2021.

Voilà pourquoi nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé :

  • Pour réagir au mieux à cette évolution inquiétante, les hôpitaux du pays ont-ils déjà décidé de reporter des interventions chirurgicales voire d’autres opérations médicales nécessitant une hospitalisation plus ou moins longue?
  • Quelles sont généralement ces interventions qui sont ou qui risquent d’être reportées?
  • Est-il possible d’indiquer d’ores et déjà quels sont les hôpitaux les plus concernés par cette réalité ? Quelles sont les prévisions en la matière ? »
