Dortmund – On the first day of the coronavirus treatment center in the Dortmund football stadium, the new offer was accepted with caution.
On Saturday afternoon, only a few people came to the north stand of the Signal Iduna Park to be tested for the new coronavirus. The new treatment center has been available since this weekend. It is operated by the Bundesliga soccer team Borussia Dortmund together with the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians of Westphalia-Lippe (KVWL).
A similar facility already exists in Dortmund. Around 2500 people have been treated there in two weeks. According to the KVWL, it urgently needed additional capacities. “It is our duty and our desire to do everything in our power to help these people,” said a statement.
The center in the BVB stadium is open daily from 12 noon to 4 pm. Registration is not necessary. The premises can also be provided on weekends, as the Bundesliga is currently paused due to the coronavirus pandemic. Otherwise, the hit game Borussia Dortmund against Bayern Munich would have taken place.
