Current information on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19
The current crisis situation due to SARS-CoV-2 is now also leading to massive restrictions on public life in Germany in order to slow down the further spread of the virus and thus enable our health care system to optimally treat the problem cases of Covid-19. The quality and quantity of clinical care is crucial for the individual chances of those people who suffer a severe course of CoViD-19. Even if the vast majority of us are not at risk, human lives will therefore ultimately depend on our (social) behaviour in this crisis.
Therefore, the management of the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT has decided - after assessing the available information on the overall situation - to temporarily close the Fraunhofer IBMT with effect from March 17, 2020 (5 p.m.) until April 24, 2020.
The IBMT will reopen at the earliest possible date in order to continue to make its important contribution to biomedical research. We wish you and your relatives good health and, if applicable, a mild course of infection.
