History

Construction of the new hospital campus began in 2013 and the structures on the campus were completed in 2016 as a long-term project to relocate Huanggang Central Hospital. [1] Renovations and installation of medical equipment was being carried out and was mostly completed when reported in January 2020. The campus was slated to be ready for its opening in May 2020. [2]

However, due to the rapid spread of the Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV 2) in Wuhan, authorities announced on 24 January 2020 the campus would be converted quickly to treat the virus patients. [3] The works to convert the campus started on 25 January 2020 by converting the empty campus by 500 construction workers, electricians and policemen. [4] Works were completed on 28 January 2020 after 48 hours and the hospital began receiving patients at 10:30 p.m. [5]

Design

The original design of the campus allowed a capacity of 2,000 beds. [6]

As a quarantine facility for the COVID-19 pandemic, the campus now has a capacity of 1,000 beds. [4]

The COVID-19 pandemic in Hubei was first manifested by a cluster of mysterious pneumonia in Wuhan, the provincial capital of Hubei, China. A Wuhan hospital notified the local center for disease control and prevention (CDC) and health commissions on December 27, 2019. On December 31, Wuhan CDC admitted that there was a cluster of unknown pneumonia cases related to Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market after the unverified documents appeared on the Internet. The potential disease outbreak soon drew nationwide attention including that of the National Health Commission (NHC) in Beijing which sent experts to Wuhan on the following day. On January 8, a new coronavirus was identified as the cause of the pneumonia. The sequence of the virus was soon published on an open-access database. Measures taken by China have been controversial. They were praised by the World Health Organization (WHO) for improvements over SARS-CoV-2 responses, but maligned by many in the international community for being slow to publicly disclose key facts or deceptive about the outbreak and for aggressively censoring information relating to the outbreak and public discontent from citizens online.
