The medical team is composed of 100 clinicians mainly majoring in internal medicine and 200 nurses from hospitals under the administration of the Shanxi Health Commission, as well as hospitals at the city and county level.

At present, the medical team has arrived in Hubei and docked with the local medical institutions, carrying out medical service and training.
