Lisbon, Jan 18- The City of Football of the Portuguese Federation (FPF), located in Oeiras (outskirts of Lisbon), will be converted into a hospital for Covid patients during the next 2 months to relieve the pressure on the hospitals in the country, badly hit by the third wave of the coronavirus.
According to sources from the FPF informed GLM today, the area will be the so-called Athletes’ House, a complex that was inaugurated last year 2020 and in which the athletes and members of the technical staff of the women’s and men’s teams of soccer.
In total, around fifty rooms will be enabled that from this week can be used to accommodate the sick.
As reported by the FPF, representatives of the Ministry of Health have already checked the facilities “in situ” and have already given the go-ahead for their use.
Given the hospital pressure of Portugal, 5,165 admitted throughout the country by Covid (276 in the last 24 hours), it is expected that this week the first internees will begin to arrive at the federal compound.
It so happens that Cristiano Ronaldo tested positive for coronavirus on October 13 when he was concentrating with the Portugal team in the Ciudad del Fútbol, so for a day he was isolated in one of those rooms of the Casa de the athletes.
Portugal – with about 10 million inhabitants – has accumulated 556,503 cases of Covid-19 since March, of which more than 135,000 are active, and 9,028 deaths.
