BEIJING, March 2 (Xinhua) -- Nearly 3,000 beds have been set up by 63 military hospitals designated to treat patients with the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), with over 10,000 military medics working at the front line, a military official said Monday.

As of Sunday, the designated hospitals of the armed forces and military medical teams dispatched to the virus-hit Hubei Province had treated 4,450 COVID-19 patients with 1,000 cured, said Chen Jingyuan, a health official with the Logistic Support Department of the Central Military Commission, at a press conference in Beijing.

Three military-led hospitals in Wuhan, capital of Hubei, had admitted 3,467 severe COVID-19 cases and cured 689 patients, said Chen.

While sticking to scientific treatment, the military medics have attached importance to self-protection, with no infection found among them so far, Chen added.
