ROME — On Friday, a huge sewage pit was opened in the parking lot of a hospital in Naples, Italy. The cut off of utilities forced the temporary closure of nearby residences to recover COVID-19 patients.
The operation at the offshore hospital was not affected, and firefighters said no one seemed to be injured. The sinkhole consumed three vehicles in the hospital’s originally empty visitor parking lot.
The local hospital area stated that a 2,000-square-meter (21,527-square-foot) cesspool was opened at dawn. Chief firefighter Ennio Aquilino told Italian television station SkyTG 24 that the implosion may have been caused by groundwater infiltration caused by recent heavy rains.
At the time, six people were recovering in their homes for COVID-1
The governor of the region, Vincenzo De Luca, said the residence will reopen within a few days after the restoration of water and electricity supplies. Both were also interrupted in the hospital, but the backup system allowed care to continue.
DeLuca said: “Frankly, we are also worried about the closure of all public utilities and the possible threats to the activities of the hospital.” “Thank God, this did not happen. We went out, but the power was restored, and now we are in care There is no problem.”
