The Hirslanden Group is actively involved in the fight against the Covid 19 pandemic. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, around 1400 patients suffering from Covid 19 have been treated in the Hirslanden hospitals, including around 300 with the most severe courses requiring intensive medical treatment under artificial respiration.

In addition, Hirslanden operates several Covid-19 vaccination centres throughout Switzerland on behalf of the respective canton - including one of the largest vaccination centre in Switzerland in Zurich Exhibition Centre with a capacity of over 5 000 vaccinations per day.

Numerous cantons have also commissioned Hirslanden with preventive, repetitive testing in companies and schools. The aim of repetitive testing is to detect asymptomatic Covid19 infections early and to interrupt chains of infection before they occur. With "Together We Test", Hirslanden has developed its own IT and logistics platform for this purpose, through which all repetitive testing processes can be handled.

The current situation at the Hirslanden Group hospitals is as follows:

10 hospitalised Covid-19 patients
2 of these are in intensive care
2 of these are on ventilators
668 318 Covid-19 vaccinations
1 413 Total Covid-19 patients treated
