It’s big news in China today that one of the temporary hospitals built in central Wuhan, where the coronavirus started, has now finally closed its doors.
The last patients of the Leishenshan Hospital, which was built in around 10 days in late January, were transferred to regular hospitals on Tuesday.
Fewer than 300 patients are now being treated in central Hubei province, a stark contrast to the 10,000 plus who were being treated there in early February.
Back in January, millions of people watched livestreams from their homes as the hospital was built, along with the Huoshenshan Hospital (if you missed it, you can watch it below).
China has now turned the focus on how it is helping the rest of the world.
The main broadcaster, CCTV, is carrying reports that chartered flights – military and passenger-turned-cargo planes – are entering the country from all over the world to collect supplies, which China is able to manufacture, as the country slowly adjusts to life after Covid-19.
