Isidre Correa, a 61-year-old patient recovering from coronavirus at the Hospital del Mar in Barcelona, was taken to the city's seafront on Wednesday after more than 50 days in an ICU.
The medical staff moved his ICU bed to the promenade of the Somorrostro beach in Barcelona, an experience that is part of a therapeutic programme at the hospital that takes advantage of its proximity to the sea.
The decision to authorise the short trips is taken by the medical team following a strict security protocol and maintaining all the precautionary measures in case the patient suffers from any medical issues.
According to local media, Isidre is scheduled to be transferred internally next Thursday or Friday, and the doctors will decide whether to discharge him according to his progress.
