China completes Hospital, Refer Coronavirus Patients.

In two days, 500 Chinese workers construct China's first dedicated coronavirus hospital in Hubei province. Two other hospitals are expected to open in Wuhan – ground zero for the outbreak – within days

China has opened its first coronavirus hospital after around 500 workers and volunteers spent just 48 hours converting an empty building.

The medical building was set to open in May, but following the deadly outbreak,  all hands were on deck to get it completed.

The health facility currently boasts 1,000-beds and the first batch of coronavirus patients were transferred at around 10.30pm last night.

The hospital, called the Dabie Mountain Regional Medical Centre, in Huanggang, also has water, electricity and internet.

It is expected to relieve some of the pressure on doctors and nurses in Hubei province – the epicentre of the outbreak – where overwhelmed hospitals were running out of beds, masks and other supplies as they were inundated with patients.
