Hong Kong’s new temporary Covid-19 hospital in North Lantau will go into service in February. The new facility is built to house patients with mild symptoms. It was completed in just four months, using the “modular integrated construction” (MiC) method. With the rise of Covid-19 cases in the city, this new hospital has negative pressure wards that can accommodate 816 isolation beds. It also has the latest fully automated molecular system, which can boost the city's coronavirus testing capacity by 10 to 15 per cent.
