The first group of patients infected with the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) have been transferred to the newly-built Huoshenshan Hospital in Wuhan on Tuesday.

Ten ambulances transported the patients to the hospital at about 9:30, who were previously being treated at three different hospitals in the city.

There are 1,000 beds in the Huoshenshan hospital, with 19 inpatient wards -- including wards for patients in critical conditions.

The hospital was completed on Sunday after a 10-day construction, after which the military medical team took over its operation.!language=1
