Brazil’s top football clubs are giving out their stadiums to health authorities to turn them into field hospitals and clinics to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

Since football has been suspended until further notice, more than half the clubs in Brazil’s Serie A have handed over their stadiums as authorities in densely populated Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro seek to expand hospital capacity to deal with the crisis.

Current South American champions Flamengo are giving control of their famous Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro to health authorities, said club president Rodolfo Landim.
