Spain: Field hospital set up in Lleida in response to coronavirus outbreaks

Spain, Lleida
July 4, 2020 at 20:03 GMT -00:00 · Published

Footage filmed on Saturday showed the field hospital set up next to the Arnau de Vilanova hospital in Lleida, as multiple outbreaks of COVID-19 registered in the area have led the Catalan government ordering the lockdown of more than 200,000 people in the the El Segria region.

The provisional hospital, set up on Friday, consists of three modules and a capacity of more than a hundred people. It is the first field hospital installed in Spain after the end of the state of alarm, last June 21.

The enclosure aims to complement the emergency care by COVID-19 in the hospital Arnau de Vilanova, the main health centre of Lleida.

President of Catalan, Quim Torra, announced on Saturday the confinement of the residents of the Segria region, in Lleida, due to the increase of cases of coronavirus, which has already accumulated nine outbreaks. The measure, which came into effect at 12:00 (10:00 GMT), affects the city of Lleida and 37 other municipalities.

The health region of Lleida has confirmed 155 new cases of coronavirus, according to figures published by the Health Department on Saturday. In total there are 3,706 positive cases.

On Saturday, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported a new world record for daily infections, 212,326 in the last 24 hours.
