Among the signatories of the letter, which was published in a German newspaper, are employees of the Regiomed clinic group with locations in Thuringia and Bavaria. In the letter they demand “to put the necessary protective and defensive measures in the hands of the citizen”. The management of the clinic network then distanced itself from the employees involved.
Criticism of the action also came from Thuringia’s Minister of Health Heike Werner (left). “It is counterproductive when medical staff behind calls to end all measures and to rely on personal responsibility,” she said on Thursday.
