Enel Cuore, the Enel Group’s charitable organisation, is supporting the Lombardy regional administration in tackling the health emergency caused by the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Enel Cuore has made a donation of 1.5 million euro for the creation of the new field hospital at the Fiera Milano exhibition centre. The first floor of the new structure was opened today and its eight units will accommodate 52 intensive care patients, by Monday it will already be treating 24. The next step will be to add a further 152 beds and a “non-infected” zone for healthcare facilities.
The donation to the Lombardy regional administration is just part of a series of measures approved in recent days by Enel Cuore to tackle the coronavirus emergency and to support the institutions and organisations involved in providing healthcare and social assistance in Italy. The Enel Group’s charitable foundation has already donated 23 million euro to projects that have already been identified and others that are soon to be selected, thanks to dialogue and continuous coordination with the Civil Protection agency and the national and regional authorities on the front line fighting the spread of the virus.
