A group of four patients were discharged from the Huoshenshan emergency hospital in central China's city of Wuhan on Saturday after recovering from the novel coronavirus, following the earlier release of nine others from the purpose-built facility. The four patients were released from the inpatient ward of the Department of Infectious Diseases at the Huoshenshan Hospital after doctors were satisfied they met the criteria for discharge. Zhao Yuying, director of the No. 1 Inpatient Ward, reminded the discharged patients to remain quarantined for 14 days at home, to continue to wear medical masks, and to do some light exercise to aid the recovery of their lungs. She also disinfected their clothing and the ward before escorting them out of hospital.
