The National Health Service hospital at ExCel London will within days be able to provide intensive care treatment for 4,000 people suffering from the COVID-19 disease.

Earlier this week, Charles emerged from a week of self-isolation after testing positive for coronavirus.

He launched the temporary facility later Friday via video link from his Scottish home of Birkhall and paid tribute to those who built it.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock, who also recently came out of isolation after recovering from the virus, was also present during the brief unveiling ceremony.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.

The vast majority of people recover.
