Pandemic coronavirus: a giant field hospital opens in London

Pandémie de coronavirus: un gigantesque hôpital de campagne ouvre à Londres

London | An immense field hospital opened Friday in a conference centre in london, after having been put in place in less than ten days to deal with the increasing influx of patients infected by the new coronavirus.

Built with the assistance of the army, the hospital of Nightingale, with an initial capacity of 500 beds, may reach 4000 beds, the equivalent of ten hospitals classic. Inaugurated by prince Charles in a video conference and the Health minister Matt Hancock on the spot, this is the first of a series of institutions provisional planned in the United Kingdom, where the Covid-19 has caused nearly 3000 deaths.
