In German state of Saxony, at least six Italian coronavirus patients will be treated as they are unable to receive treatment in their own country.
Saxony’s premier Michael Kretschmer has said that following consultation with doctors, he has agreed to welcome six Italian patients.
Earlier, the Italian government has asked them whether they could help by taking care of patients who are not being taken care of in Italy.
Kretschmer said that the treatment of Italian patients would be a chance for doctors in Saxony to learn about the novel coronavirus, and also a sign of solidarity.
Germany has registered over 22,000 cases according to the latest figures from the Robert Koch Institute for public health.
Saxony is one of the lesser affected of the country’s 16 states, with only 658 cases so far.
