The Chinese city of Wuhan started the construction of a new makeshift hospital at the end of January to treat patients infected with the coronavirus.
The construction started at the site of Wuhan where the coronavirus outbreak was reported to have started.
The speed of construction was incredible — hundreds of workers and machinery made the miracle happen.

The new hospital was given the name Leishenshan
, which means Mount Thunder God Hospital.
It offers a total of 1,600 beds to sick patients.
