Tottenham Hotspur are the first Premier League club to host a coronavirus testing operation at their stadium.
A Covid-19 testing and swabbing operation commenced at the
62 000-seater stadium late last week, while it opened its doors to
patients after being transformed into a facility for the NHS on Tuesday.
The stadium's basement car park is being used as a site for
drive-through tests for North Middlesex University Hospital staff, their
families and dependants.
There will be up to 70 tests carried out per day, with 10 nurses on the site between 10:00 -14:00 five days a week.
Spurs' new home has been repurposed and fitted out to house patients
of North Middlesex Hospital's Women's Outpatient Services, helping keep
pregnant women away from the hospital and freeing up space for the
treatment of Covid-19.
The club's media cafe, away dressing room, NFL dressing room, flash
interview rooms and press conference room are all now being used by NHS
staff to treat up to 70 patients per day.
