The first hospital dedicated to helping coronavirus patients dealing with long term effects of the illness has opened in Headley Court

Surrey's NHS Seacole Centre at Headley Court, a former rehab centre for injured soldiers, has received its first patients.

NHS officials say Covid-19 patients can be left with tracheostomy wounds from having a tube inserted in the windpipe or need heart, lung, or muscle therapy.

Other survivors of the virus may need psychological or social care.
