China completed construction yesterday of one of two new hospitals in Wuhan dedicated to treat coronavirus patients, state media reported.

Construction work started on the Huoshenshan hospital on 23 January and finished eight days later.

Timelapse video shared by CCTV shows the scale and speed of construction, which appeared to continue through a number of nights.

The new hospital has 1,000 beds and was due to begin admitting patients from today.

The death toll from the coronavirus outbreak, which began in Wuhan, is now 425.

More than 14,000 people are believed to have been infected globally.
