British boxer Amir Khan has decided to offer his four-storey building to help the health authorities in the fight against coronavirus. The two-time world professional boxing championship tweeted that he is ready to offer the building to the National Health Services (NHS) to treat COVID-19 patients.

"I am aware of how difficult it is for the public to get a hospital bed in this tragic time. I am prepared to give my 60,000 square foot 4 story building which is  due to be a wedding hall and retail outlet to the @NHSuk to help people affected by the coronavirus. Pls keep safe," Khan tweeted.

There have been over 9,500 positive cases of coronavirus in the United Kingdom so far. On Wednesday, Prince Charles, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II was also tested positive for COVID-19.
