About 10 days ago, Danny Zausner, Chief Operating Officer of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City – home of the US Open – he received a phone call that would be unthinkable not to consider that long ago. local government officials wanted to know if the tennis facility sprawling 42 acres could accommodate a makeshift hospital for COVID-19 patients. The health system of the city was already taxed, and only aggravated the crisis. Zausner said officials have asked the stadium is used after Arthur Ashe, the largest tennis stadium in the world and home to some of the most memorable moments of the sport, such as a medical facility. But Ashe is not really ideal for the purpose. It has only an external space, and the space under the stands in relatively limited. Zausner offered an alternative: the indoor training facility of the center, the goods under the Open hospitality events, hosting interactive fan experience and shops. The dozen dishes offer 100,000 square meters. After a few visits, the transaction is concluded. “They will build a hospital,” says Zausner “from scratch.” The construction of the 350-bed facility will start this week. “This place will be a place life-saving,” said New York Mayor Bill de Blasio at a press conference Tuesday. During the 19-COVID pandemic she has intensified the sports world with countless acts of kindness. To name a few: announced on March 27, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wife Brittany, they would donate to charities that feed the needy people in Louisiana $5,000,000, where 30% of the number of cases to only increased on Tuesday. Arizona Diamondbacks gave over $1 million for supplies such as food and personal protective equipment for health workers. Star tennis Rafael Nadal and veterinary NBA Pau Gasol have to raise a unit north of $12 million for Spain, the country of origin to start, which was destroyed by ground. Now sports are close to the lines of the face of the epidemic, as many sports facilities around the world are converted into temporary hospitals. In recent disasters, emergency operators have turned to sports facilities for relief: the Superdom in New Orleans, for example, had a problematic refuge after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, after an earthquake of magnitude 6.4, Puerto Rico met in January, meals support spread on fields baseball and football athletic facilities. The new coronavirus epidemic is not a disaster, but they are included in an area. Worldwide, officials were forced to the canvas to ease the burden on the existing hospital systems for the additional space. Sports facilities have never opened their doors for the first patient. Wuhan converted one of his great sports facilities in a hospital when the epidemic has worsened, and others have done the same. According to the Philippine Sports Commission, two national sports facilities – one in Manila and one in Pasig City – is transformed into hospitals. The most famous stadium in Brazil, the Maracana in Rio, is expected to become a field hospital; a temporary device is also built in a stadium Sao Paulo. The Minister of Health of Wales has agreed to build a 2,000-bed facility to the national stadium financing, Principality stadium has a retractable roof. Real Madrid Santiago Bernabeu Stadium will save medical care. In the United States, as well as plans for the New York City Tennis Center, helping about 400 soldiers to build a hospital and Qwest Field Event Center, near the stadium where the Seattle Seahawks and Seattle Sounders run game. It will not be COVID patients to focus accommodate the range of existing hospitals to treat the disease. serve the Army Corps of Engineers at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento sanding, the former home of the NBA franchise in the city, the king, as the site of a 360-bed facility that patients COVID and not COVID; California Gov. Gavin Newsom has identified Oakland Coliseum, home of A, “Site surge” when a flow of 19 patients-COVID supplementary health care requires a potential capacity site in the state. A spokesman commitments that the organization “is ready to do anything to help those in need at this important time for our community.” In Missouri, the governor, Mike Parson, said Tuesday that the National Guard of Missouri is considering the Dome of America Center in downtown St. Louis, the former home of the Rams and NFL-time home of the St. Louis Hawks Battle the XFL as an alternative health care site. University of Missouri officials met last week with representatives of the Army Corps of Engineers, Missouri Hospital Association, the Missouri National Guard and the state to discuss a possible overflow device; the Mizzou Arena, home of the school basketball team, and another on-campus arena Hearne center were discussed as possibilities. Health professionals are also available with sports properties test to COVID-19 Inspection were outside rest of Citizen’s Bank in Philadelphia, where the Phillies play in a spring training complex in West Palm Beach, Florida. Uniform for the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals established. Because of their size, football stadium parking lots are ideal for drive-up test; The tests taken outside of Washington, and the Hard Rock Stadium, home to the Miami Dolphins place among the many TIAA BANK Field in Jacksonville, FedEx Field. In New Orleans, where the probable cause Carnival festivities contributed to the rapid spread of the virus, the company that manages the Smoothie King Center, where the game Pelicans NBA must use the city and state the permission of the hall floor to store dangers masks Suits, gloves and other supplies overwhelmed used to support the health sector. Many experts believe that as COVID-19 continue the US health infrastructure, the stadiums, arenas taxation, and sports associations to use alternatives – especially as field hospitals. “Over the next few weeks we will see what will happen,” says Fady Barmada, co-founder and president of Array Analytics, a group of health care, which involves modeling a massive shortage of intensive care beds across the country. “In a best case scenario, we can use as few of them as a short amount of time possible.” The scale sports fans and efficiency for suppliers: they can monitor several patients at a time, to focus more workers freely most severe cases to permanent hospitals. You can use the concession stands for power and joy patients workers. Trucks and buses can easily move people and goods over the facilities and stadiums and arenas are going with large amounts of electricity to keep a hospital. “There’s just a big win in the practicality of these structures in use,” says Dr. Lee Kaplan, director of the Institute of Sports Medicine at the University of Miami Health System, which as the team physician for the Miami Marlins and the ‘University of Miami Hurricanes, spend time in sports facilities. “It is housing, electricity, air conditioning -. All you need” New York City that has been turned into a conference center and a navy ship for patients treated, certainly need the game room. The USTA complex in Queens, sitting near Elmhurst Hospital that overwhelms particular COVID-19 patients. So hopefully patients with less severe symptoms in the treatment of tennis courts to send the city. On Tuesday, Zausner, remembers Chief Operating Officer of the tennis center, Mayor de Blasio, the US Open is scheduled to begin on August 31, exactly five months to the day. The temporary hospital, however, is the time required. “We do not know if we are at the beginning or in the middle,” said Zausner. we are certainly not the end. Each bed – on a tennis court, a football field, anywhere on earth – is important.
