“Plan B”: what should we do when all 2,000 intensive care beds have been taken?

But what could such a plan B look like? “Creating extra beds or setting up emergency hospitals is certainly not a solution”, says intensivist Geert Meyfroidt of UZ Leuven. “You would therefore need extra staff and that is exactly a problem.”

“We are thinking about more intermediate departments something that is somewhere between intensive care and ordinary hospital beds. Patients who need more follow-up could go there, but not to the same extent as intensive care. “
