London Nightingale hospital ‘on standby’ as no new admissions expected


The London NHS Nightingale hospital is to be put “on standby” as no new coronavirus admissions are expected in the coming days, Downing Street has said.

The prime minister’s spokesman said the move was due to limited demand.

The temporary hospital was built at London’s ExCel exhibition centre and is able to hold 4,000 patients.

The spokesman said: “It’s not likely that in the coming days we will need to be admitting patients to the London Nightingale while coronavirus in the capital remains under control.

“That’s obviously a very positive thing and we remain grateful to everybody in London for following the government’s advice in helping to protect the NHS. US SPREAD GOOD NEWS!
