French military builds hospital camp to treat coronavirus cases

Construction began on a military field hospital in Mulhouse, which should help relieve the city's civilian hospital, which is overburdened by a growing influx of coronavirus patients.

With 30 beds and about 100 medical staff, these military intensive care units (MIS) promise to be much more than a "field hospital," the Army Health Service (EHS) said.

The hospital will also be located near the civilian hospital's heliport, to take advantage of the infrastructure.
