COVID-19 | Manchester City offer use of Etihad Stadium to NHS amid coronavirus crisis


Defending Premier League champions Manchester City has offered the use of their Etihad Stadium to the National Health Service (NHS) to train doctors and nurses during the coronavirus crisis in the country.

Currently, 10,000 people are being tested for coronavirus daily, with the government hoping to increase this to 25,000 a day. Healthcare and social care workers are “first in line” for those tests, Gove added.

More than 1,000 people have died from coronavirus in the UK as of 27 March, and more than 17,000 have tested positive for the virus, according to figures from the Department of Health and Social Care.

Last week, local rivals Manchester United joined City in donating a combined 1,00,000 pound to local food banks in a bid to support them through the coronavirus crisis.

“We are proud of the role our supporters play in helping local food banks and recognise the increased strain likely to be placed on these charities by the impact of coronavirus,” the two Premier League giants said in a joint statement.

Spanish club Real Madrid had also allowed its home stadium Santiago Bernabeu to be used as a makeshift storage facility for strategic medical supplies in the battle against COVID-19 pandemic.
