Dr Mäemets: Most accidents involve electric scooters, but sports injuries are also on the rise

The warm, summery weather has resulted in an increased workload at the East Tallinn Central Hospital Emergency Medicine Centre: in addition to the usual household and workplace injuries, people are coming to the hospital with sports injuries. The workload of doctors has increased and waiting times are longer. Healthcare workers are therefore urging people to be aware of their limits when doing sports and always use safety equipment.
