Record low number of COVID-19 patients in intensive wards

Only 1 percent of the 10,000 corona-related hospitalisations last month ended up requiring intensive treatment

The figures showed that only  1 percent of 10,000 corona-related hospitalisations last month ended up requiring intensive treatment.

In comparison, 6 percent of corona hospital patients needed intensive care treatment in November and December.
