Since the end of 2019, the COVID-19 epidemic has swept the world. With the widespread spread of the COVID-19 and the continuous emergence of mutated strains, the situation for the prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic remains severe. On May 21, 2021, Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province notified the discovery of a new locally confirmed case. Guangzhou became the first city in mainland China to compete with the delta mutant strain. As a local hospital with strong nucleic acid detection capabilities, Sun Yat-sen University Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hospital took the lead in launching the construction and deployment of the Mobile Shelter Laboratories and large- scale screening work in Foshan and Zhanjiang, Guangdong Province. Through summarizing "practical" experience, observation and comparison data analysis, we use real data to verify a feasible solution for rapid expansion of detection capabilities in a short period of time. We hope that these experiences will have certain reference value for other countries or regions, especially the underdeveloped areas of medical and health care.
