London’s newest 4,000-bed hospital to treat COVID-19 patients | News
The UK has reported nearly 700 new deaths, taking its toll to more than 3,500.
The news came as a new hospital was opened in the capital, just over a week after work on it began.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, meanwhile, said on Friday he was remaining in isolation with mild symptoms of COVID-19, including a raised temperature, seven days after he first tested positive for the new coronavirus.
