  • NHS Nightingale being built

The Nightingale hospital is the first of several centers that will open around Britain to cope with the rising numbers of patients who can't be cared for in over-stretched hospitals.

It comes as the NHS announces two further NHS Nightingale hospitals will be built in Bristol and Harrogate to provide hundreds of extra beds if local services need them during the peak of coronavirus, in addition to the one at the ExCeL.

But Boris Johnson's government is facing mounting criticism about the lack of clarity with its plans to increase testing for coronavirus, having set itself a stiff new target of 100,000 tests per day by the end of April.

The hospital was built and prepared in nine days during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Prince of Wales made a speedy recovery after testing positive for Covid-19 and will be returning to his royal duties soon.

Charles and Johnson are among 38,168 confirmed coronavirus cases across Britain. Prince Charles, who has just left self-quarantine after himself recovering from a mild case of COVID-19 still remains in his Birkhall residence in Scotland but will conduct the ceremony on Friday through videolink.

The heir to the throne paid tribute to all those who have worked tirelessly to create the new medical facility at the ExCel conference centre in East London, calling it a "spectacular and unbelievable feat of work". When fully running, the hospital will have capacity for between 4,000 and 5,000 beds.

Charles said the new hospital was a "spectacular and nearly unbelievable feat of construction" and followed an "extraordinary collaboration". It was proof of "how the impossible can be made possible and how we can achieve the unthinkable through human will and ingenuity", the prince added.

We are ready today to do what's required of us, but my hope is that we are not needed, because if we all take sensible steps to reduce transmission of this virus then fewer people will need care and the pressure on my hardworking colleagues will reduce. In this dark time, this place will be a shining light.

"In these troubled times, with this invisible killer stalking the whole world, the fact in this country we have the NHS is even more valuable than before", said Health Secretary Matt Hancock, who also contracted COVID-19 and only emerged from his self-isolation on Thursday.

The temporary National Health Service Nightingale hospital in London, located at an expo center, is beginning operations Friday with 500 beds outfitted with oxygen tanks and ventilators, according to the BBC.

Closing out his address, he joked that the "wonders of modern technology can only do so much and I can't quite reach" to unveil the plaque, so he asked the head of nursing to unveil the plaque to declare it open.
