Despite the high number of infections, Austria is far from a catastrophe scenario, emphasizes top physician Dr. Marcus Franz in the new “Medicus” talk with eXXpress editor-in-chief Richard Schmitt. However, one cannot give “a complete all-clear” yet. You are in the middle of a “reorientation” with regard to the virus. The number of infections is expected to fall, but there are still many infected and sick people.
At the “Medicus” all other relevant questions about the corona virus are also discussed. Franz reports how the virus will probably continue to develop, how dangerous it is to be classified medically, how the new Minister of Health Johannes Rauch (Greens) has fared so far and why an Austrian Minister of Health fundamentally lacks the necessary competencies in many questions: “De facto have we ten healthcare system in Austria: the nine federal states and the federal government.”
In this highly informative conversation, Marcus Franz also goes into the “fundamental opposition” from Vienna and the hard line prevailing there, as well as the usefulness of the many tests in Vienna, which are found nowhere else.
