China has shut down one of its largest makeshift hospitals that were built to treat patients suffering from Covid-19 coronavirus infection in Wuhan.

Named Leishenshan, the facility was closed on 15 April due to decrease in the number of coronavirus cases in the city, reported Xinhua news agency. Last batch of patients in the hospital was transferred to normal hospitals on 14 April.

The 1,600-bed hospital, managed by the Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University, involved more than 3,000 medics from nine provincial regions in the country.

A total of 2,011 patients received treatment at the hospital and mortality rate was 2.3%.

Leishenshan and Huoshenshan were the two more than 1000-bed capacity hospitals built in ten days to cater to the increasing Covid-19 patients in Wuhan, which was considered as the epicentre of the outbreak.

As well as these two hospitals, China constructed 14 more makeshift health centres. All these centres have been closed.
