Xiaotangshan Hospital Put into Use as a Designated Hospital in Beijing

2020/03/17

To ensure effective epidemic control of overseas arrivals and maintain the normal order of work and life for residents, the Beijing Leading Group on Epidemic Control of COVID-19 decided to activate the Xiaotangshan Hospital starting from 16 March as a designated facility for the screening of personnel coming (back) to Beijing from overseas as needed and treatment of imported suspected cases and mild and moderate confirmed cases.

The hospital, with a capacity of over 1,000 beds, will be mainly used for further medical screening of at-risk inbound travelers identified in the quarantine of Beijing customs. After screening, confirmed or suspected cases will be hospitalized for treatment. And others with no abnormal conditions will be transported to their destinations by relevant provincial authorities in a safe and proper way, or by Beijing district authorities should their destination be Beijing. They will then be quarantined at designated facilities for a 14-day medical observation through enclosed operation and management.
