HCMC – More than 200 workers and soldiers on February 6 completed renovating 5,000 square meters of floor area at the Sao Do University in the northern province of Hai Duong into a third Covid-19 field hospital, which is ready to be handed over for the province to treat coronavirus patients.
It took just a week to complete the renovation work. The three-story field hospital is located far away from residential areas. Its ground floor was equipped with testing and treatment facilities as well as is a place for receiving coronavirus patients. The remaining floors accommodate patient rooms and a number of functional units.
The hospital has 239 beds, which will be extended to 300 if necessary.
Early this month, the equipment used at a similar hospital at Da Nang city’s Tien Son sports center was transported to the Sao Do University to set up the field hospital.
All of the engineers and workers involved in the construction of the field hospital had their health monitored regularly by the Hai Duong Province Center for Disease Control and Prevention during the construction.
Earlier, given the complicated development of Covid-19 in Hai Duong Province, Sun Group decided to sponsor the construction of the third field hospital to support this northern province in fighting the coronavirus.
On January 29, a Sun Group working team led by Vu Thi Cam Giang, vice chairwoman and general director of Sun Group Hanoi Office, worked with the authorities of Hai Duong and surveyed recommended areas to set up the third field hospital in the province.
Sun Group hoped that its support will enable Hai Duong to gain extra strength to contain the spread of the coronavirus, soon overcome difficulties caused by the pandemic, and resume its normal status.
Previously, two field hospitals had been set up in Hai Duong, with the first one located at the medical center in Chi Linh city and the second one at the Hai Duong Medical Technical University.
In August last year, Sun Group also sponsored the construction of a field hospital at the Tien Son sports center in Danang, when this central city was hard hit by the virus.
