MSC-owned Splendid arrives in Genoa as floating hospital

Last Monday, MSC Group’s ferry ship Splendid was delivered to Genoa after being converted into a “floating hospital” ship to sup-port the coronavirus battle going on in Italy. These beds will be used for patients recovering from COVID-19 before returning home.

Operated by ferry liner GNV, Splendid has been converted into a fully-equipped facility to assist COVID-19 patients under quarantine, and patients during convalescence, reports the Port of Genoa. The conversion took two weeks.
