    #Germany’s hospitals are getting overwhelmed by the sharp rise of #Covid19 patients requiring intensive care as opposed to the early months of the pandemic, a hospital association head told local media.

    “In states like Saxony, the number of patients in intensive care is five times higher than it was in April. Hospitals are either reaching their capacity limits or have already exceeded them,” Gerald Gass, the head of the German Hospital Federation (DKG), an umbrella group uniting regional hospital associations, told the newspaper Welt am Sonntag.
