Reportage: COVID-19 Isolation Center
By CHARLEY ROUSSET | April 22, 2020
On Monday, April 6, The Amsterdammer visited an Isolation Center in Eindhoven receiving patients suffering from Coronavirus, which was created by a group of GPs and nurses. The GGD GHOR organisation in The Netherlands gives guidelines on how healthcare professionals should receive patients with COVID-19. However, doctor’s offices have to set up their own testing facilities in order to avoid other patients to be contaminated. They also have to find the appropriate medical material themselves and do not receive payment yet for the patients they see.
We followed doctor Odette Herijgers, who is the Crisis Coordinator of 5 different GP offices in Eindhoven for one day. This video reportage focuses on how they organised and what type of equipment they have to receive their patients safely.
