Gallery: Kuressaare field hospital packed up

The Estonian Defense Forces (EDF) field hospital which supported Kuressaare Hospital with additional staff and beds was packed up on Tuesday for transporting it to the mainland.

Fifteen coronavirus patients were treated at the field hospital which arrived in Kuressaare on April 1. Eighteen EDF and thirty civil medics worked at the hospital, none of whom were infected, chief of the field hospital Dr. Helena Roon said.

As there are no more patients in need of intensive care, it is the right time to conclude the operations of the field hospital, chief medical officer of the emergency situation Arkadi Popov said last Friday.

"The EDF medics gained invaluable experience in Kuressaare, as we have not had to offer stationary treatment in a field hospital like this before," Roon told "Aktuaalne kaamera" on Tuesday.
