A total of 1,400 assigned medical staff from the People's Liberation Army (PLA) on Sunday began the preparation work for incoming viral pneumonia patients at the newly-built Huoshenshan Hospital in Wuhan City, central China's Hubei Province.

The hospital is one of the two emergency specialty field hospitals in Wuhan, the hardest-hit city of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak. With a capacity of 1,000 beds, it is dedicated to treating patients infected with the new virus, who will begin arriving on Monday.

Many of the military medical staff have participated in the fight against SARS in Beijing's Xiaotangshan Hospital in 2003 or in the anti-Ebola mission in Sierra Leone and Liberia, and have rich experience in treating infectious diseases.
