At present, according to the epidemic situation in China, there is a total outbreak in Wuhan, and then the outbreak in Wuhan is sent to the whole country.So that means this is an imported case.Now look at the outbreak in the United States.The United States is a multi-state outbreak.What does that mean?

when this video was posted, many were highlighting the "quality of construction" and deliberately ignoring the miracle that is happening. Meantime, there's one guy @Names ( youtube.com/channel/UC7UAbD7nD0igP7jF1xvYFGg ) who said (and i quote) "not really. it is just a concrete slab with pre build boxes similar to shipping containers put on top. it is not a real hospital. What I find more impressive if that we dont get these human kind threatening diseases in the rest of the world. Step up your hygiene game china :P" who's laughing now?

Not true that the Wuhan Gov only released notice one month after the first case. In fact doctors noticed one of the first strange pneumonia cases on or about Dec 17. Took a few days for more similar cases to show up and then escalating to municipal level.

There are many reasons to be able to build a hospital in ten days: 1, Wuhan has a very large wholesale market called Hankou North, almost all can buy things. 2, Wuhan next year there are two subways completed to open, where there are a large number of construction workers and professional designers. 3, Wuhan is one of China's important transportation hubs, can reach any city in China in a day

I remember that a worker was going to Wuhan to help build the hospital. His son was studying at university and told his dad, Dad, please let me go to Wuhan to help build the hospital with him. His father was afraid that his son will be infected with pneumonia. But His son say it again and again, he really want to do something for WuHan ,at the end ,the worker promised to take his son to Wuhan to build a hospital together. I was really touched by the warm-hearted young guy in China.I see the Chinese have always been united in the face of major disasters. As long as everyone works together, there is nothing to be solved.

I love how they bulit it with bars over the Windows. It was basically a room to lock people in. That's why there was heaps of video of police dragging people there against their will. People didn't want to go there. It was 10% hospital 90% quarantine holding facility. That's why china built it. Not to help people but lock them up

I stopped watching at "someone - it is not yet known who- ate a wild animal that, by chance, carried the novel coronavirus..." Already debunked a million times. If it is not yet known who patient zero is, how does one know it was acquired through wild animal consumption? Even if you're lazy to do fact check, at least read your own statement to see if that actually make sense.

NO qualified doctors, registered nurses and healthcare workers, no advance medical equipments, clean beds, and sufficient medicines, look more like a make shift morgue than a hospital. Building a structure in 10 days or even 1 day to house many infected persons does not make it a 'hospital' .

Nothing will matter, social distancing, masks, even a vaccine, if in a few years a chinesse guy will eat a live monkey, we will be again back to square one, nothing will change unless China evolves from medieval times eating live animals, it happened in 2003-2004, now in 2020, and probably again in a not so distant future. The world has to unite as one and demand a change.

The design was "carbon copied" from an existing prefab hospital. So no need much time for planning stage. It was said 10days but the work runs 24hrs a day means 3 shift a day which is equal to 30days or 1 month. So if you put a Mass of workers and equipments on it, on my own opinion, I am not saying 100% but I may say IT IS POSSIBLE. Since this is a "carbon-copied" designed PREFAB project. Which means, prefab materials is almost "ready to print out". Well, disregarding geopolitics, I am commenting as an Engr. and that is my own opinion.
