The makeshift hospital, with 14,000 beds, received 47,920 patients over the last 77 days.
The last patient left the hospital on Tuesday morning.
Shanghai reported two locally-transmitted confirmed COVID-19 cases from midnight to 5 p.m. Wednesday, the municipal health commission said at a press conference.
