Ethiopia will soon have a COVID-19 field hospital on the outskirts of the capital Addis Ababa. The facility originally was to cater for UN staffers before it was designated a field hospital. It is built on a 25,000 sqm land and is expected to go operational after 10 days. The health infrastructure has been under construction for the past 3 weeks.
The WHO and the Ethiopian health ministry are currently discussing how the hospital can potentially serve as a training center for emergency medical response teams to benefit Ethiopia and the region.
