500 hospital beds to be installed at rugby stadium

Scarlets have been working together with Carmarthenshire County Council and the Hywel Dda University Health Board to provide additional beds, if needed, during the COVD-19 pandemic.

Various Parc y Scarlets locations, including the Juno Moneta Indoor Arena, are being converted for the use of the NHS over the coming days with provision for up to 500 beds at the stadium.

Scarlets general manager of rugby Jon Daniels said: “Community has always been a huge part of what the Scarlets is about and in unprecedented times like these communities stick together.

“The health service and workers are doing an incredible job in challenging circumstances and we are happy to be offering help and support in any way we can.

“We would urge everyone to follow the latest NHS advice on protecting themselves from the virus, particularly to stay at home and avoid unnecessary travel.”
