This doesn't make up the fact that China was the one who caused the outbreak to reach this far. Arresting people who speak out on the Virus. THIS IS THEIR FAULT! ALL OF IT! DOWN WITH CHINA!

Regardless of its quality and success or failure, I am impressed. It was possible because it was China. The party says it needs to be done, they do. Is it good or bad?

These are the cases where democracy fails because in democracy they would have taken 3 months just to decide if there is a need for an extra hospital.

First of all, this virus would less likely start in US.(either WMD or wild animal consumption) they do not need in the first place. Secondly, infrastructure well built in developed countries. So they do not need in rush. Thirdly, the power of control, Not a single westerner like it. I mean it. some westerners saying how much they love China is because they never in deep touch with China. So if you are from western world, there is no need to envy this. there is an old saying in China : 生在福中不知福(Fools never know when they are well off.)

There's reports of waste water leaking from the ceiling and walls in those hospital's. It's also reported that NCOV19 survives passing through the bowels of humans I feel like this channel has either been bought by the CCP or even worst, lost it's integrity.

They did that in 10 days, and here in Shetland they spent like 20 years just debating about building a new high school in Lerwick (Shetland's capital), to replace the now old one.

While many hate communism, there are good to it if the government is aware of what it needs to do for its ppl. It is a country of 1 billion ppl and chaos is easy of there are no iron fist control. With that said, this enables the country to do almost anything it wanted to at the fastest and cheapest rate. Unlike US where military contractors and other private companies gets huge chunks of money from the development. It's idea is wages of ppl must be sufficient Vs the development. When cost are low, they can afford to pay workers better. This can be reflected by huge amount of Chinese going for holidays around the world. It's white and blue collar groups are growing and this sustain the country. Most major cooperation are owned or co-owned by the government thus diverting back the money to the country for development such as railway and roads. This is something the few rich at West will not allow to happen. Each country has its unique way to handle situations and in China, they know their strength is people. They have lot and lot of people.

China: Builds a hospital in 10 days Also China: Attempts to cover up the Wuhan virus instead of actually treating it, as a result it has spread to a multitude of different countries. Still refuses to reveal the true death toll and number of infected to save face.

When this shit collapses in a few years. We will know they just BS for 10 days.
Eason Lin (1 day ago)
Speed is not the point dude and never try to describe the event as if Chinese government did it well they didn't. They hid things and even fined a doc who originally said that there's the virus. And to those who admire the 10-day shit: would you like to give up the process of discussion, the voting rights, freedom of speech, freedom of news, rule of law, democracy and a lot of things you have now to achieve that shit? Understand the situation better then talk please

It’s emerged that it might not have been from eating the bats, but from scientists carrying out tests on bats.

It's literally a death camp not a hospital, If you see a leak footage from the patients who treated there the building is begin to crumble already, the walls and ceiling is falling down and water is leaking everywhere, you can catch the virus just being there...Lmao!!

I remember when I moved to DC in 2004, they said they planned to have a metro line out to Dulles Airport in ten years. I thought to myself, wow ten years is a really long time, but that'd be extremely convenient. It's been 16 years. The metro line still doesn't go out to Dulles Airport. #USA

All the juvenile comments aside, there are very good reasons why it would be impossible to duplicate such a feat in western countries and why medical facilities in the West take years to build, and it has nothing to do with incompetence or red tape. There's a very long list of safety measures and preconditions, like environmental impact studies, fire protection measures, logistics studies, etc., that must be met before construction can even begin. These measures might slow down a building project and they might cost a lot of money, but hundreds of years of experience has shown that this is the best and safest way to avoid structural failures as well as survive unforeseen catastrophes. Yes, China has without a doubt accomplished a very remarkable task, but it would surprise no one if the building structures begin to fail after a few short years or if contaminants begin polluting the environment thereby causing another epidemic in the local population. Which is precisely the reason why Western journalists were specifically excluded from reporting on the building process: they would have undoubtedly introduced an unwanted measure of scrutiny and uncovered any substandard building practices.

There are a lot of people on this forum fondly praising the efficiency at construction — of mass detention facilities for those suspected of having the virus, not hospitals — of this evil mass-murdering human rights-abusing dictatorship.  Nazi Germany was also very efficient at organizing the labor of unwilling people for media-friendly public works projects. Are you people also going to wax on about how much speedy construction they achieved while working these political prisoners to death?

Kind of odd how he doesn't mention how China denied and covered up the Corona Virus, declined CDC support, or how China manipulated WHO to exclude Taiwan even after China exported the Corona Virus to Taiwan. China also arrested doctors and journalists who had the audacity to broadcast the existence of the Corona Virus. Any bets on how long the hospital will stand before collapsing?
