An elderly man takes his wife in an emergency. During dinner he suddenly felt severe chest pain. The woman is immediately welcomed by the nurses at the entrance of the hospital. Due to Corona’s measures, her husband has to wait outside. After a few minutes, he begins to get restless and imagines scenarios in his head. He keeps knocking on emergency room windows, desperately wanting to gain access. When a nurse tried to calm him down, he flared up.

Carmen Vonmont (43), a specialist in emergency care at the University Hospital Zurich (USZ), talks about the matter when she visits Blick. Vonmont says, “Even before Corona, there was regular aggression towards health workers. At the beginning of the crisis, the situation improved for a short time – probably because hardly anyone was allowed to enter the hospital due to the harsh corona regime. “But since the measures have been eased, we have seen a steady increase in cases.”
