A large sinkhole appeared outside the Ponticelli Ospedale del Mare which was being used as a COVID-19 hospital in eastern Naples.

No one was injured but the sinkhole expanded to around 500 square meters and has swallowed up several cars in the parking lot.

Rescue personnel and firefighters have requested the hospital to evacuate all occupants as they try to secure the area.

Because of the sinkhole, the hospital has lost its supply of water and electricity rendering them unable to provide care for COVID-19 patients.

Chief firefighter Cmdr. Ennio Aquilino said the sinkhole could have been caused by the groundwater that seeped into the soil after heavy rain.
