. Hospitals and their staff are working hard to ensure the medical care of people during the current coronavirus crisis. In order to handle the greatly increased challenges, the medical facilities urgently require additional medical devices and equipment.
“The outstanding performance of the healthcare services in Germany has been impressively demonstrated over recent weeks. But more support is needed. We are pleased to be able to help the Klinikum Stuttgart and the Marienhospital at short notice. At
The Klinikum Stuttgart – including the three hospitals Katharinenhospital, the hospital Bad Cannstatt and Germany's largest children's hospital, the Olgahospital – will receive around 810,000 euros. This will be used to purchase 20 anaesthetic machines and 21 ventilators. Additional endoscopes for intubation will also be purchased as well as a LightCycler 480. This is laboratory apparatus which is used, among other things, to detect the coronavirus in DNA samples. Dr. Alexander Hewer, the Commercial director of the Klinikum Stuttgart, is delighted with the support: "At the Klinikum Stuttgart we have more than doubled the ventilation capacity from 90 beds at the beginning of the year to over 200 in the meantime. In addition to our highly qualified staff, we are of course dependent on modern equipment. We thank

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
