‘Mobile hospital’ arrives in Suifenhe

HARBIN: A “mobile hospital” was recently put into use in the city of Suifenhe, at the China-Russia border in northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province, to assist local medics in treating COVID-19. The hospital, developed by China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC), was dispatched by the First Hospital of China Medical University. It consists of a remote consultation vehicle and an X-ray vehicle. Nearly 100 CASIC “mobile hospitals” had played an important role in the fight against the epidemic in Wuhan, capital of central China’s Hubei Province, as crucial medical equipment of makeshift hospitals there. In recent years, “mobile hospitals” have participated in many major rescue missions in China, including the fight against SARS and earthquake relief works. – Agencies
