London Heathrow Airport is set to be turned into a medical supply hub in the government’s wartime effort against coronavirus.

Britains biggest airport will overhaul its operations this week, prioritising cargo flights carrying pharmaceutical and medical supplies. Around half of the nations supplies will be shipped to the airport.

Logistics companies have begun importing thousands of testing kits to meet the increased demand.

This allows Heathrow to increase cargo movement by 53 percent.

The number of supplies coming in will be unprecedented for the airport.
