Dutch repurpose Eurovision venue to host virus patients

A Dutch concert hall that was set to host this year's Eurovision Song Contest will instead welcome patients suffering from coronavirus from Friday, AFP reports.

Where thousands of fans were supposed to cheer on contestants in the long-running competition next month, the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam is now filled with 88 hospital beds to ease the burden on hospitals.

A special hall has been set aside for patients suffering from COVID-19 who need treatment but do not need to be hospitalised.

The Netherlands is one of the few countries in Europe yet to impose a total lockdown to contain the coronavirus pandemic.

Some 27,419 infections have been reported with 2,945 deaths, according to the latest count released on Tuesday.
