London's ExCeL conference centre to house 'Nightingale' field hospital

The ExCeL Conference Centre in London's East End is being transformed into a temporary hospital with the capacity for up to 4,000 beds as part of the UK's efforts to fight the Coronavirus outbreak. Named the 'Nightingale Hospital', the halls of the 100,000m² facility — which normally house large exhibitions and trade shows — will initially hold around 500 beds with oxygen and ventilators, with capacity for more spaces and equipment as they become available.
