UK: Chelsea Owner Abramovich Offers Club Hotel to NHS Staff Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Chelsea FC’s owner Roman Abramovich announced on Wednesday that he will make the club’s hotel available to all NHS staff for the next two months, with local residents sharing their appreciation for the decision from near the hotel in London on the same day.

“I think it can be of great help for NHS staff who are going to be overworked and in great difficulty with the pressure on beds. I think it’s a great idea that Mr. Abramovich is helping the Millennium hotel to facilitate that and I hope others will follow that initiative,” said one Chelsea FC fan.

“Why would they not give something, make it available when you need to? It will not be used for anything else, I doubt they’ll have too many tourists sleeping in the hotel,” said another.

The NHS has accepted the offer, which will see doctors, nurses, and other NHS workers involved in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak at NHS facilities in the north-west of London stay at the hotel, with the cost of the accommodation covered by Abramovich.

As of Wednesday there were 2,626 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the UK, with 103 people who tested positive having subsequently died.
