Storyline


The largest temporary hospital in Spain, which was originally the IFEMA exhibition center in capital city Madrid, was officially put into use for patients infected with the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on Tuesday.

Covering an area of 35,000 square meters, the hospital contains 1,300 beds in the first stage to receive COVID-19 patients from two nearby hospitals and is expected to accommodate up to 5,000 patients in the future.

Spanish Health Minister Salvador Illa emphasized at a press conference Tuesday that the Spanish government concentrates on deploying all necessary resources to address the insufficient medical service in Madrid.

Illa said that the Ministry of Health makes the biggest effort to purchase medical equipment on demand, like ventilators, and to call for the production of protective equipment as well as the promotion of rapid nucleic acid testing.

In addition, the Spanish government has approved 100 billion euros (around 108.09 billion U.S. dollars) of official credit as circulating funds on Tuesday to provide guarantees for companies and individual households who are suffering economic difficulties due to the epidemic in the country.

According to the Ministry of Health, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 reached 39,673 in the country on Tuesday. The Madrid region has suffered the brunt of the epidemic with 12,352 infections, and 1,535 deaths, or a mortality rate of 12.4 percent.
