With several stadiums are being converted into hospitals to treat the coronavirus patients, authorities in Rio de Janeiro are also turning the iconic Maracana football stadium into one of 7 field hospitals to join the fight against the deadly virus. The new hospitals will add 1,800 beds to the health system in Rio de Janeiro, which is the state with the second highest number of deaths and confirmed cases in Brazil. The hospitals are likely to be ready at the end of April.
