Meanwhile, the country’s doctor and nurse associations continue to point out that hospital capacities are beginning to strain. In Turin, the capital of the Piedmont region in the north, which is stated to have the highest increase in cases, so there is no room in hospitals, a field hospital was started to be established by Italian army units around the Juventus Football Club stadium. A church in the city was previously offered to Kovid-19 patients by placing beds.
