WORLD WAR AGAINST VIRUS

SATELLITE images show the scale of new hospitals being built around the world to cope with the global coronavirus pandemic.

Breathtaking aerial images taken by Colorado-based space technology company Maxar show facilities built to cope with the COVID-19 outbreak.

Images show treatment centres and hospitals in Nigeria, Colombia, Russia and Argentina.

Many field hospitals and temporary facilities have appeared across the US, in states such as Florida, New York, Louisiana and Washington State.

Maxar said in a statement: "Maxar is scanning our recent satellite imagery for the construction of medical facilities in response to the coronavirus.

"These seem to be popping up slowly at hospitals, in/around sports facilities and other places. We expect to find more of these facilities being creating in the coming days/weeks."
