The first new NHS Nightingale hospital was created in just nine days to help deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

It has the potential to deliver 4,000 beds at the ExCeL Center site in the capital’s Docklands in Newham, east of London.

BBC fans were donated because the drama is set in the southeast, even though it takes place in a fictional West Country town.

There are also Nightingale hospitals in Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and Harrogate, with two others announced Friday on Wearside and Exeter.

Coronavirus: everything you need to know

The BBC’s move is the latest in a nationwide wave of gratitude to NHS personnel who risked their lives to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

On Thursday, the nation united again for a series of nationwide applause for frontline workers.

It happened when the UK recorded its highest number of deaths per day since the start of the epidemic.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock told daily press conference No. 10 that Thursday’s 8,958 hospital deaths were due to illness, 980 more than the previous day.
