Germany uses the Air Force to transport Coronavirus patients

The German Air Force announced, on Thursday, that it is currently preparing two planes in the city of Cologne, western Germany, to be used to transport patients with the emerging coronavirus who need to enter intensive care.

Among the two planes, one is an Airbus A310 Med Evac, an aircraft that houses an intensive care unit, as well as an A319OH surveillance plane.

An Air Force spokesman said that two intensive care places were equipped, Thursday morning, inside this second plane, explaining that the Airbus A310 Med Evac plane includes six intensive care places.

He stressed that rapid transport capabilities must be maintained so that intensive care patients can be transferred, in the event of a burden on hospitals in some areas, to other areas that have places to accommodate them.
