Coronavirus: Germany weighs controversial triage issue | DW

A major Berlin newspaper, Der Tagesspiegel, recently published a debate on who would get medical care and an ICU bed if coronavirus numbers continued to grow. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is claiming that 50% of those who have tested positive for the virus and enter the ICU end up dying, but Germany only has a death rate of 30%. Currently just under two-thirds of the ICU beds in Germany are being used, but many are concerned that this number will shoot up due to lockdown measures beginning to ease up. This comes after other European countries such as Spain, Italy and France had reports of patients dying in the hospital hallways after doctors had to choose who to treat.
