First Temporary Hospital in Wuhan Suspends Operations

A temporary hospital in the Qiaokou district of Wuhan, the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak, suspended operation on March 1 after all its patients were either discharged or moved to other hospitals.

It became the first temporary hospital among the 16 of its kind in the city to stop receiving coronavirus patients.

A total of 34 patients were discharged from the temporary hospital last Sunday and another 76 patients will be transferred to two other medical units. The recovered patients can go home after a 14-day quarantine at a designated place.

The temporary hospital started admitting patients on February 11. Since then, it has received 330 patients. 

The Jianghan temporary hospital, with the most beds in Wuhan, has discharged over 1,000 people as of March 1. The 1,564-bed hospital with 1,100 staff, converted from the Wuhan International Conference and Exhibition Center, started receiving patients on February 5.
