China's Tianjin to set up dedicated hospital to treat coronavirus patients

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - The city of Tianjin in northern China will establish a dedicated hospital to treat people infected by the coronavirus as part of a “wartime mechanism” to fight the disease, a government-owned paper said on Tuesday, citing the local health commission.

The city will move patients in the existing Haihe hospital to make 600 beds available at any time for potential patients.
