Tien Son field hospital was set up at Tien Son Stadium in Hai Chau District in early August when a Covid-19 outbreak was detected in Danang. It has 500 beds and hundreds of doctors and nurses, Dan Tri reported.

Tran Thanh Thuy, deputy director of Danang Department of Health, acted as the hospital’s director, and Do Ngoc Son from Hanoi’s Bach Mai Hospital acted as the deputy director.
