Live: More medics from Hebei Province arrive at Leishenshan Hospital

The seventh and eighth batches of medical teams from north China's Hebei Province, including 150 medical workers and 20 doctors, arrive at Leishenshan Hospital in Wuhan to join the fight against the novel coronavirus. They will take over the C10 and C12 wards which have 72 patients after the original medical staff for both wards have been on duty for a month and a half.

Leishenshan Hospital is the second facility built for COVID-19 patients in central China's Wuhan City. It was built in just 10 days to accommodate patients with severe symptoms.
