Study rooms and reading corners have been set up in the makeshift hospital at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai.

The study room is equipped with facilities such as tables and chairs, lamps, power supplies and free Wi-Fi networks, enabling printing and online learning for students. Besides, the medical staff has decorated the room to encourage the students, especially those about to take the national college entrance examination.

"It's difficult for the student to focus in such a noisy environment, therefore, we are providing a relatively quiet and separate space for them," said Zhang Xi, a doctor in the makeshift hospital.

The hospital also has some preschool children. Besides daily treatment, the medical workers organize activities such as reading, painting, games and science popularization for them offered by some preschool teachers among the patients. The children draw pictures of the medical staff and volunteer on the wallboard to express their gratitude.

Meanwhile, the hospital also has set up many reading corners. Most of the books are donated by the staff to help patients relieve psychological pressure and enrich spiritual life.

As the largest makeshift hospital in Shanghai, it provides nearly 50,000 beds to treat mild cases and asymptomatic carriers. The hospital has received and treated more than 130,000 patients since it was put into use on April 9 and has discharged over 90,000 patients.
