UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — China’s first coronavirus treatment hospital opened on Wednesday in a city near Wuhan, after it took workers and volunteers just two days to transform an empty building into a 1,000-bed emergency unit.
The first coronavirus patients were transported to the local Dabie Mountain Medical Center on Wednesday morning, according to local media.
The project was completed within 48 hours thanks to the joint effort of staff from construction companies, utilities and paramilitary police, the city authority said.
Another hospital, meanwhile, is being built from scratch near Wuhan and is expected to be completed this week. Even the construction of this hospital will be completed in a record time of just 7 days.
More than 6,000 people worldwide are now confirmed to have been infected with coronavirus and 132 people have died in China.
