Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel’s largest city, which has consistently seen the highest number of coronavirus infections nationwide, announces that two departments set up to treat coronavirus patients will close after over half a year.
“Today is a special day,” tweets Prof. Dror Mevorach, head of internal medicine at the hospital.
“I am closing the two coronavirus wards that were open for around six or seven months. There are fewer than 30 patients in the coronavirus departments and two wards will remain open to treat them. I am pleased to close the departments and also with the constant efforts of the [medical] team that enlisted.
“I am staying realistic that we may need to reopen them, but in the meantime, we can be a little happy.”
