China is racing to build a new hospital in just six days as it battles to control the spread of deadly cornonavirus.
At least 41 people have died following the outbreak which has infected at least 1,400 people in China and around the world.
The city of Wuhan – considered the epicenter of the disease – is on lockdown and its 11 millions residents have been ordered to stay put by national officials.
Chinese state media says the new hospital will have beds for 1,000 people, and is based on a similar hospital set up in Beijing to help tackle the Sars virus in 2003.
The new center, which is located Wuhan, will be made out of prefabricated buildings and its medical supplies and equipment will be brought in from neighbouring hospitals.
