Ijnn’s Madrigal dormitory in Madrid, Spain, is a symbol of the Spanish capital city’s recent success in reopening its schools after a severe outbreak of the coronavirus.
In its first week, students in Madrigals classrooms were kept on lockdown, and teachers were asked to stay in their rooms for an extra two weeks to keep them safe.
But the hospital was not prepared for such a situation, with only a handful of staff in the classrooms and a handful on-site.
It wasn’t until March that students were allowed back in.
“We were not expecting to have to leave the school,” a spokesperson for Ijn told Al Jazeera.
It was a lesson that is still being learned.
The Spanish hospital’s first week of lockdown, in March, left students without access to their classrooms for an additional two weeks.

“We are doing a lot more to try and restore normalcy in Madrid.
We are trying to find a solution that will allow us to restore normal,” said Ijntorios Madrigalistes, the hospital’s head of education.
IJn has also started a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of education, and to increase awareness of the need for healthcare.
It has created a website, “Madrid’s Healthcare, Education and Literacy”, that features a series of interactive videos that highlight the health problems in the city, and what schools can do to prevent them.
Madrid hospitals were also overwhelmed by the virus, with around 6,000 beds at the time of its outbreak, and the number has since increased.
Many students were kept in their classrooms while other classrooms were turned into makeshift labs to treat and isolate the virus.
It was not until March when students were able to return to the schools, with most remaining in isolation.
The health crisis has been exacerbated by a massive increase in hospital admissions, with over 10,000 students being treated in the past three months, according to the Spanish health ministry.
In a letter to the public released in March to mark the opening of Madrigalia, the university said that this was a “very significant number” of patients and that many were in serious need of intensive care.
Ijndan also said that it has seen an increase in the number of admissions due to coronaviral illness in the last two weeks, but that the numbers are still far below the level seen during the outbreak.
“We are taking measures to ensure the safety of our students, and that’s what we’re trying to do,” said Jair Salgado, Ijner’s head teacher.
“I am very aware of the crisis in the country, but we are not afraid to do anything.
I think we should be proud of the job we are doing.”
Madrid was not the only hospital to face an increase.
The Madrid city government has announced that the number and seriousness of coronaviruses cases will increase by 2,000 per day until the end of March, and it has ordered the closure of the hospitals for the next five days.
Madrileño’s Ijnian hospital was overwhelmed by an influx of patients (AP: Ana Vincente)The hospital’s management team was overwhelmed with the number they received in the days after the coronivirus outbreak.
“The emergency room has had to be re-opened twice and that has been extremely difficult for us,” said Ana Vintas, a senior doctor at the hospital.
“It is a lot to do.”
The number of students admitted to Ijnicos Madrigalid doubled in a week, and a total of 4,788 patients have been admitted there, the health ministry said.
IJn said it has received over 1,000 new patients each day, and its overall patient count has increased from 1,300 to 2,500.
The hospital has also set up an Ebola awareness group to educate patients on the virus and the effects of the disease.
Ijson says it is working on an Ebola education centre in the hospital and is working with local health authorities to make sure the centre is safe and functional.
But Ijnaros Ijnin told Aljaa that it is not just students and teachers who are at risk.
“Students are more vulnerable to infections because of the high infection rate,” she said.
“People are more scared and they feel less safe.”
The outbreak has also impacted other healthcare sectors, with the city’s hospitals facing a huge backlog of patients in the weeks after the outbreak, said Vinta.
