Standing together against COVID-19

For Fresenius Medical Care the health and safety of our patients, colleagues and partners is our main priority. We take this very seriously and are closely monitoring the situation to ensure that our practices are adequate and appropriate in view of the evolving events.

As we take care of some of healthcare’s most vulnerable patients, we are keeping a close eye on this situation and have reinforced the infection control practices already in place to protect them. We are in close contact with the local authorities in the countries where we operate and follow their guidance. We have also created task forces to review our response as the situation develops.

After almost three years of living with COVID-19 it’s not easy to stick to the necessary precautionary measures. But they are just as important now as on day one. But they are just as important now as on day one. We sometimes think that Corona is primarily a problem during the winter – but it is a full year challenge as we could see this summer. To continue precaution measures, get vaccinated and refresh the vaccination if recommended by our physicians. Keep in mind: just like other viruses, SARS-COV-19 keeps changing. The new strains of the virus are much more transmissible than earlier versions. In other words: it’s easier to catch it.
