Coronavirus has 541 people in the Děčín region. He also appeared in homes for the elderly

The infection also appeared in the Šluknov – Krásná Lípa Homes for the Elderly, where area testing was performed by employees of the Health Institute in Ústí nad Labem. In the Šluknov center, the infection was confirmed in three employees and two clients.

“In order to protect the health and staff, we set up a so-called Covid unit in the facility, thus isolating the sick from the healthy,” added Dagmar Hluchá, the director of the homes. In a home with a special regime in Krásná Lípa, the test was positive for one employee. “Clients are prohibited from leaving the facility and a ban on visits is announced. Families have the opportunity to contact their relatives via video call, “added Hluchá.

“While three to four weeks ago the infection was more common among adolescents and students, now there are more cases among middle-aged people and seniors,” said Lenka Šimůnková, director of regional hygiene in Ústí nad Labem.
