If you believe that you may have been infected with Corona

In any case, please stay at home and contact your doctor or the emergency service of the statutory health insurance by phone on 116117, where you will be informed about how to proceed and what further steps will be taken to find out whether you are actually infected.

Under no circumstances should you go directly to a doctor's practice or hospital. You could spread the virus further and risk endangering other people who may be weakened by previous illnesses.

Most corona infections are not serious and can be cured at home. Hospitals are only for the most severe cases. The doctor who is in charge of you will decide on admission to a hospital.
