As the death toll of the deadly coronavirus continues to rise, China has built a 1,000-bed hospital completed in just 8 days to help tackle the outbreak.

Huoshenshan Hospital in Wuhan, where the virus originated, is one of two dedicated facilities being constructed with 361 deaths now confirmed since the outbreak started in December.

Reports have it that the hospital will begin to admit patients later today.

The hospital, Huoshenshan, or “fire-god mountain”, is designed to have 1,000 beds for patients with confirmed infections to ease a shortage of beds elsewhere in the city as the virus spreads.

The epidemic has infected more than 17,000 in China and at least 171 overseas.

There are more than 11,000 cases in Hubei province, where Wuhan is located, state television said today.

Construction of Huoshenshan was copied from a hospital built in Beijing in 2003 that was dedicated to the fight against SARS, or severe acute respiratory syndrome.

More than 7,500 workers took part in the fast-build project, which commenced on January 25 and finished this weekend.

China is also building a second hospital in Wuhan dedicated to the treatment of coronavirus patients, with 1,600 beds.

Leishenshan, or “thunder-god mountain”, is scheduled to be completed on February 5.

There are 17,205 confirmed cases of coronavirus, as of Sunday, the same day the first confirmed fatality outside China was announced.

A 44-year-old Chinese man from Wuhan died in the Philippines, but appears to have become infected before arriving.
