MOSCOW (Sputnik) - A number of Latin American and North African countries have sent Russia requests for mobile hospitals to combat the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Proekt-Technika Corporation developing the systems said.

"In connection with the global epidemic of COVID-19 coronavirus, the number of countries having infected people is increasing. Proekt Technika receives daily requests from countries of Latin America, the CIS, and North Africa for the manufacture of mobile anti-infection units," it said.

Russia is currently sending supplies and disinfection equipment to help Italy slow the rapid spread of the virus in the country, the second-largest coronavirus hotbed following China, with over 69,000 infections and 6,820 deaths.
