020Wuhan is scrambling to turn sports stadiums and exhibition centers into makeshift coronavirus hospitals to fight the spread of the virus.

Still short on suitable medical facilities, Wuhan, the epicenter of the novel coronavirus outbreak, is scrambling to turn sports stadiums and other buildings into makeshift shelter hospitals.

021Late Monday, the city began to turn Hongshan Gymnasium, the Wuhan International Conference and Exhibition Center, and a cultural complex known as the "Wuhan Living Room" into hospitals. These emergency care facilities will have around 3,400 beds in total.

022Wuhan panic-built Huoshenshan Hospital, a working hospital with 1,000 beds, in just 10 days, and another quickly constructed medical facility, Leishenshan Hospital with around 1,600 beds, is expected to open Wednesday at the earliest.

023These shelter hospitals will be primarily used for "emergency aid, surgical treatment, and clinical examination." These facilities will be for individuals with mild coronavirus symptoms. The makeshift hospitals plan to begin receiving patients Tuesday evening.
