MUNICH (dpa-AFX) – In view of the worsening corona situation in the clinics, Bavaria is preparing to transport a larger number of intensive care patients to other federal states. The so-called cloverleaf concept for the strategic relocation of intensive care patients within Germany has now been activated for the Free State, announced the German interdisciplinary association for intensive care and emergency medicine (Divi) on Wednesday night.

The chairman of the working group of the Conference of Interior Ministers for Fire Brigade Matters, Rescue, Disaster Control and Civil Defense, Hermann Schröder, explained that applications for relocation for around 80 patients from Bavaria and the east of Germany – the Kleeblatt-Ost – were examined on Wednesday via the clover leaf procedure .

At first, however, it was unclear which Bavarian clinics could be affected. The LMU Klinikum, which claims to treat most of the Covid 19 intensive care patients in the state capital, is currently significantly expanding its intensive care capacities and is not planning to move patients to other federal states for treatment, said the medical director and chairman of the board, Markus Lerch, on request with. “In the past few days and weeks, the LMU Klinikum has repeatedly taken over intensive care patients infected with Covid-19 from other Bavarian hospitals, whenever they needed treatment in a maximum provider and as far as the intensive care capacities at the LMU Klinikum allowed it.”
