Airbnb to Give Free Accommodation to Healthcare Workers

Airbnb plans to give healthcare staff free accommodation

Airbnb is set to give free accommodation to Healthcare workers.

The move is part of a global initiative to help 100,000 people on the frontline.

Hosts are encouraged to get in contact with the platform if they are willing to allow their house or apartment to be used.

Similar initiatives in France and Italy were launched earlier in the coronavirus pandemic – with over 6,000 homes offered for free.

It comes after the government announced a rent freeze and a ban on evictions for the duration of the pandemic.
