Light in the darkness

Welcome to Sara Bronfman's blog. Sara Bronfman is a humanitarian and human rights activist. I see on the Agence France Press news service that while many countries have shut their borders to stem the march of the pandemic, three German states have opened their hospitals to patients from eastern France. The Grand Est region is now the epicenter of the outbreak in France. The crisis there can be traced largely to a church gathering in Mulhouse attended by hundreds of people at the end of February.

Now the German states of Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate and Baden-Wuerttemberg have offered spare hospitals to treat French patients. A spokesman for Baden-Wuerttemberg state's health ministry said the state would "naturally try to help our French neighbours," and authorities have asked all hospitals with free capacity to take in French patients requiring ventilators.

Mulhouse was the site of intense battles between France and Germany during both the 20th century's world wars. The two countries are again fighting an enemy, but this time together. They say people tend to come together more when faced with a common enemy. Coronavirus is an enemy we all face.
