A makeshift hospital designed to house up to 268 patients with mild coronavirus symptoms started operating inside the Ibirapuera sports complex in Sao Paulo on Friday. Drone footage captured on Saturday shows the 7,500 square-metre structure inside Icaro de Castro Mello stadium. The field hospital is the third built in Brazil’s biggest city by the local state government in less than a month, as the coronavirus peak is expected to peak this week. Sao Paulo is the hardest hit state in Brazil, tallying 2,511 deaths related to COVID-19 as of Friday, according to the country’s ministry of health.
