Corona: Stader Seniorenheim requests help from the Bundeswehr | – Nachrichten – Lower Saxony

Status: 22.01.2021 3:16 p.m.

A senior and nursing home in Stad has asked the Bundeswehr for help with daily corona rapid tests for the staff. There are currently 26 senior citizens and four employees infected with Corona.

As NDR 1 Lower Saxony reports, the support was requested because the Johannisheim is currently affected by a second major wave of infections. The facility was therefore completely quarantined. A visit ban is in force, and the 137 employees must be tested before each shift. The now necessary number of daily rapid tests can no longer be done by the staff, said a spokesman. That is why the application for help from the soldiers was made through the district.

Six residents have already died

Particularly tragic: Because of the Corona outbreak, the district health department had to cancel the vaccinations that were actually planned for this week. Six people have died in the home since the pandemic began last spring.

Heim must provide board and lodging for the soldiers

According to the Bundeswehr, around 20,000 soldiers are available throughout Germany as “helping hands”. Incidentally, their use is not in vain. In the application, the Stader home management agreed to provide room and board for the soldiers as soon as they arrive at the Johannisheim.
