European countries believed that Germany would always have spare ICU beds for them. Now they're almost full

Recommended Posts

Germany was seen as a beacon for other European countries during the first coronavirus wave and hailed for one of the world's best health care systems. But it is now beginning to struggle with more severe infections than at any other point during the pandemic.

Coronavirus infection numbers hit an all-time record Friday, with nearly 24,000 new daily cases recorded -- and so did the number of patients in the country's intensive care units. Official data from the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive and Emergency Medicine (DIVI) show that the number of Covid-19 patients in German intensive care units (ICU) has climbed from 267 on September 21 to 3,615 as of November 20 -- a more than 13-fold increase in the space of just two months.

What the article said was that coronavirus infections and hospital cases are rapidly increasing. And that countries that once counted on Germany for space in ICU beds might not be able to do so in the future. What don't you understand about that?
