The health and safety of our patients, colleagues and partners are the top priority for Fresenius Medical Care. As a health care provider, we are aware of the responsibility that we have – in general, but especially in times we are currently facing. We take this very seriously and are closely monitoring the situation to ensure that our practices are sufficient. As we take care of some of health care’s most vulnerable patients, we are keeping a close eye on this situation. We have reinforced the infection control practices that are already in place in order to protect our patients. We are in close contact with the local authorities and follow their guidance. Furthermore, we have created task forces to review our response as the situation develops.
