Storyline


Leishenshan Hospital has emptied its first inpatient ward on Sunday as it continues to see an increase in discharged patients and a decrease in new cases.

The field hospital was built in Wuhan in 10 days to receive novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients during the peak of the outbreak.

Equipped with 32 beds, Ward A5 had treated 44 patients in total, but now with a lack of patients the ward will suspend operation and the medical personnel for the ward will be sent to other wards or go back home.

"About 40 people were discharged every day from our hospital, and currently we only have about 460 patients left. In some inpatient wards there were less than 10 people, so we started to consolidate wards and reduce medical personnel so as to improve treatment and also allow some medical workers to return home," said Li Kun, director of the Medical Management Department of Leishenshan.

Ward A5 was shut down after Zhao, 71, was transferred to a different inpatient ward. She had been admitted to the hospital on February 14 with a fever and cough.

"Zhao was a severe case and in a bad mood when she came in. After receiving antiviral treatment combined with Chinese medicine, the patient got better with images showing vivid signs of absorption. So we will transfer her to another inpatient ward continue treating her effectively and also allowing us to empty out this ward," said Li Tieying, the director of Ward A5 first department of Contagious Disease at Leishenshan Hospital.

At around 13:00, Zhao was seen being transferred to a different inpatient ward for medical observation and treatment. The nurses will now sweep through the ward and make sure everything is sanitized and accounted for.

"After treatment is suspended in this inpatient ward, nurses will go back inside to clean up the ward, organize and classify the equipment, and disinfect everything," said Guan Mei, head nurse of Ward A5.
