Nearly 1/3 of coronavirus infections in Poland come from hospitals or clinics. Another 7% are Social Welfare Houses (DPS), the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate (GIS) informed.
Mazowieckie is an outbreak of hospital-acquired infections
Coronavirus infections in hospitals and outpatient clinics affect both patients and medical staff in these facilities. It is worth noting that nearly half of the infections through contact in a medical facility and more than half of the infections through contact in DPS come from the Mazowieckie voivodeship. The situation is particularly difficult in the Mazowiecki Szpital Specjalistyczny in Radom. As of 13 April, there were over 200 infections and 600 out of 1,500 thousand workers were not in the facility. The Powiatowe Centrum Medyczne in Grojec is also a large outbreak of infections. In total, a dozen or so hospitals in the Mazowieckie voivodeship operate to a limited extent.
