Luxembourg has requested the support of the NATO Support and procurement Agency (NSPA) to augment its current capabilities and tackle the current COVID-19 crisis. The provision of non-medical support such as tented solutions will equip the Centre Hospitalier du Luxembourg (CHL) with 100 additional beds.
The NSPA has prepared, supported and coordinated the transport and construction of the facility and will assure its maintenance. Fifteen NSPA experts are teaming with the Luxembourg Army on the project.
"These additional facilities will enable us to considerably adapt the triage area for patients with an adjacent zone for laboratory tests and an X-ray area", said a CHL representative.
NSPA was able to answer to this urgent request mobilising the equipment in less than 24 hours, an operation that normally takes five days.
