A makeshift hospital in Wuhan's Qiaokou district suspended operations on Sunday, as all its patients were either being discharged or moved to other hospitals.

It became the city's first temporary hospital to stop receiving patients infected with the novel coronavirus.

A total of 34 patients were discharged from the makeshift hospital on Sunday, and can go home after a 14-day quarantine at a designated area. Another 76 patients were transferred to two other medical units before 10 pm Sunday, including 10 with serious symptoms and 66 with mild symptoms.

Since opening on Feb 11, the temporary hospital has handled 330 patients, including 232 people who have recovered and been discharged.

Medical workers at the makeshift hospital, all from Shanxi province, will stand by at the hospital in case of emergency, with medical supplies and facilities remaining sealed.
