Letnany field hospital ready to take in patients

The army has finished work on a field hospital in Letnany on the outskirts of Prague.

The field hospital, with a capacity of 500 beds, was designed to treat less acute cases and patients on their way to recovery so that other hospitals can focus on serious cases of Covid infection and essential care.

According to Health Minister Roman Prymula the hospital will start taking in patients when hospitals around the country reach their capacity limit, which is likely to happen around November 10.
