GREE, HAIER, OPPLE, HUAYI and CANASIN Donate Medical Facilities to Wuhan Epidemic Hospitals
The 1,000-bed Wuhan Huoshenshan Hospital, a 34,000-square-meter facility dedicated to treating patients suspected of contracting novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), was officially completed in merely 8 days and would be ready to receive patients starting from last Monday, Feb 3rd. In the meantime, another 1,600-bed hospital named Leishenshan expanded to 75,000 square meters was constructed on Feb 5th, and started admitting patients the following day.
Over 27 million people on the Internet witnessed the entire process of construction on both hospitals, showing the world China’s speed and strength to curb the epidemic.
Zhou Xianwang, the mayor of Wuhan City, and Bai Zhongbin, deputy commander of Joint Logistic Support Force of People’s Liberation Army (PLA), signed the handover documents at Huoshenshan Hospital, marking that a total of 1,400 medical personnel from PLA have been tasked with testing or treating suspected patients.

A Ward at Huoshenshan Hospital
Each ward has two beds with television set and is equipped with its own bathroom with water heater, toilet and sink, among other basic supplies. Important internal facilities, including oxygen pipelines, air conditioning and ventilation ducts, ensure that the air delivered to the room has been purified. In order to prevent cross infection, the cabinet that connects the room to hallways is used for the delivery of daily necessities, drugs and food without entering the rooms.
Slightly different from Huoshenshan, Leishenshan Hospital was built on a parking lot, beside which a canteen for athletes was transformed into a building that provides accommodation and dining for medical personnel. More importantly, the sewage at both hospitals will be strictly disinfected twice before discharge.
