The Pan American and Para Pan American Games Special Legacy Project as well as the Ministry of Transport and Communications, in coordination with the Armed Forces and the Ministry of Environment, are responsible for the implementation of dedicated areas for coronavirus (COVID-19) patients at the Pan American Village
Works at two of the towers have been completed in a few days, since the Government decided to refurbish the venue.
All refurbishment works
were carried out to grant the facilities and conditions needed to host these patients —as stipulated by the Government— thanks to the support of the Armed Forces and the Lima 2019 Special Legacy Project personnel.
12 trucks transported 100 tons of material into the Village, making a total of 56 trips.
It must be noted the Pan American Village was designed to house around 10,000 athletes during the Lima 2019 Pan American and Parapan American Games.
900 beds have been set up in two towers as part of the first stage of refurbishment.
