Spain COVID-19 Response

MDM Spain also started an intervention to support the national health system by managing an additional tent with capacity for 150 people next to the Gregorio Marañón hospital in Madrid. This is an area for patients with mild symptoms of Covid-19, who will be treated there while waiting for additional hospital resources. It will be installed as soon as possible and its capacity can be increased as needed. MDM provides an expert team of 15 people who have begun working with the hospital staff on all matters related to infection prevention and control protocols, known as IPC. In addition to this, MDM is collaborating with the Occupational Health and Preventive Medicine Services to improve prevention protocols in the hospitalization areas of the Marañón.
The main objective is to reduce infections in hospital environments and protect health professionals. Nearly 6,000 have already been infected throughout the country. Almost 15% of the total number of people affected are health workers, which is seriously undermining the system’s capacity to provide care. Madrid is the community most affected by the corona epidemic. Almost 15,000 of the 47,600 cases registered in Spain so far have been located there.
