Central Bohemian hospitals in Benešov, Mladá Boleslav declare state of mass disability

Hospitals in Benešov and Mladá Boleslav have declare states of mass disability due to a lack of capacity to treat Covid-19 patients, and other Central Bohemian medical facilities may soon follow, ČTK reports.

A state of mass disability is an extraordinary event in which a medical facility is unable to provide the standard level of care due. There are now 730 Covid-19 patients in Central Bohemian hospitals and only a dozen or so free beds in intensive care units, regional officials said.
