As the death toll of the deadly coronavirus continues to rise, China has built a 1,000-bed hospital to help tackle the outbreak in just eight days time.

Huoshenshan Hospital in Wuhan, where the virus originated, is one of two dedicated facilities being built, with 361 deaths now confirmed since the December outbreak started.

It's reported that the hospital will start admitting patients later today.

The hospital, Huoshenshan, or "fire-god peak," is planned to provide 1,000 beds for patients with reported infections to relieve a shortage of beds elsewhere in town as the virus spreads.

More than 17,000 in China and at least 171 overseas were diagnosed with the disease.

There are over 11,000 cases in the province of Hubei, where Wuhan is located, state television stated today.

Construction of Huoshenshan was copied from a 2003 Beijing-built hospital dedicated to combating SARS, or severe acute respiratory syndrome.

More than 7,500 employees participated in the rapid-build project, which started on January 25 and ended this weekend.

China is also constructing a second Wuhan hospital dedicated to treating coronavirus patients, with 1,600 beds.

Leishenshan, or "mountain Thunder-god," is scheduled to be completed on February 5.

There are 17,205 confirmed coronavirus cases as of Sunday, the same day the first confirmed fatality was reported outside of China.

A 44-year-old Wuhan-born Chinese man died in the Philippines but appears to have become infected before arrival.
