ROME – A giant hole opened Friday in the parking lot of a hospital in Naples, Italy, forcing the temporary closure of a nearby home to rehabilitate patients with COVID-19 as utilities were cut off.
The operations were not affected at the Marine Hospital, and firefighters said no injuries appeared. The flood engulfed three cars in the otherwise empty parking lot for hospital visitors.
The local hospital district said the 20-meter (66-foot) and 2,000-square-meter (21,527-square-meter) funeral was open at dawn. Chief Firefighter Cmdr. Ennio Aquilino told Italian television channel SkyTG 24 that the implosion could have been caused by water penetrating underground as a result of recent torrential rains.
At that time, six people were recovering at the COVID-1
District Governor Vincenzo De Luca said the residence would open within days of electricity and water being restored. Both were hospitalized, but backup systems allowed care to continue.
“Honestly, we were also worried about the collapse of all utilities and that the hospital’s operations could be jeopardized,” De Luca said. “Thank God this did not happen. We had a power outage, but the electricity was restored and now we have no problem providing care. “
