Chinese authorities are rushing to build two new hospitals in Wuhan, the city at the heart of the coronavirus outbreak, in a matter of days to help combat the fast-spreading virus.

A rendering that was released earlier on the construction company’s website provided a glimpse of what the Huoshenshan site would look like once finished. Photos, videos and other information provided by the construction company and Chinese officials offered a fuller picture of how such a facility was able to be built so quickly.

The Huoshenshan hospital spans about eight acres and includes an intensive care unit, patient wards, consultation rooms, medical equipment rooms and more. Separate quarantine wards were built to minimize cross-infection risks, according to state broadcaster China Central Television.

The hospital is a two-story building consisting of prefabricated units, according to China State Construction Engineering Corp.’s website. Videos and images of construction at the Huoshenshan site began appearing online on Jan. 24, showing dozens of excavators, bulldozers and other earthmoving equipment rushing to level the ground. The construction companies then added several layers of matting and poured concrete. The hospital units are on pillars to keep them off the ground. The units are made of flat boards that hook together.

Each unit is about 100 square feet and can hold two beds, according to People’s Daily, the Communist Party’s flagship newspaper. The rooms are depressurized so air is drawn into the rooms, a common practice in hospital

China is a communist country. They can build highways, bridges, buildings, and hosptials very quickly because they don't have to comply with environmental laws, state laws/regulations, and lawsuits.

If you have been to China you have seen it. They built their interstate highway system in 1/2 the time we did. They have a modern train wheel chaging facility at the border with Mongolia. I have been lucky and been there a number of times.

They did these in 10 days?

Building a highway is easy compared to building a 1,000 bed Hospital in 10 days.

China has done lots of things quickly and well and this is no exception. Ever seen the Aswan Dam and what they did there. They moved a few cities to higher ground so the lake could be formed. At least one city had 100,000 people living in it. All new houses, Apt., roads, etc. They did that in a few years. Go visit China and you will see for your self what a people can do when they work  together, and have good leadership. People say China is a Communist Country. Well I learned during my first visit that is not true, as those days passed a long time ago. They are a one party country and sadly could slip into Dictatorship since the current President wants the job for life just like Trump. Do you know what the most popular car in China was the last time I was there. Buick from GM. That is why that division of GM is still in the US.

It it is because China doesn't have labor unions (except one controlled by the state).

Well you never have to worry about seeing something like that in the USA under Trump. He would   just follow the idea from the former Gov. of Ga and let them die in the Streets. China builds hospitals to help people, and Trump builds camps to house his enemies. A year ago he built a number of them to house 100,000 people. The only use so far for some is the border people he hates. Looks like he found cages were cheaper to keep them in, even after they get sick.
