Lombardy is ready to reopen its former COVID hospital at the Milan Fair if intensive care beds in the northern region run out, crisis unit chief Antonio Pesenti told ANSA Wednesday.
The region around Milan currently has 150 ICU beds available in its various COVID hubs, he said. As of Tuesday some 63 COVID patients were in intensive care. Lombardy currently has 10 COVID hubs, Pesenti said. Another 7-8 may gradually be activated if the epidemic worsens, he said.
