China is set to open a new hospital in the city at the centre of the coronavirus outbreak, as the numbers of people infected continue to grow.
Wuhan’s 1,000-bed Huoshenshan Hospital, built in just eight days, is one of two dedicated facilities being constructed to help tackle the outbreak.
China is struggling to deal with the virus, with more than 17,000 confirmed cases and 361 deaths.
The patient was a 44-year-old Chinese man from Wuhan who appeared to have been infected before arriving in the Philippines.
Many countries have barred foreigners arriving from China and are quarantining their own citizens.
Latest figures from China’s National Health Commission on Monday revealed that, alongside the confirmed cases, there were:
21,558 suspected cases
152,700 people “under medical watch”
475 people discharged from hospital
There have been more than 150 confirmed cases of the virus outside China.
