  • 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?

  • Too bad they didn't incorporate indoor plumbing into their flat-pak hospital. Contagious patients have to walk 200 mtrs outside the hospital to an old toilet block - WHICH HAS NO HAND-WASHING FACILITIES. Patients not able to walk are lying in their own waste and dying of gastroenteritis, not the coronavirus

  • This whole clip is full of bullshit , they are probably owned by a chinese company. Nobody knows exactly how the virus came into contact of human beings , the bat eating bullshit was dismissed quickly , there is some evidence that the virus might have been engineered . There were doctors who tried to whistle blow about the Corona virus but they were arrested and silenced . The so called "hospital" is actually a quarantine center , where lots of people enter or are brought in by force but they don't leave , some of the doctors that managed to blow the whistle said they were burning around 100 bodies a day , victims which weren't reported as deaths. You should be ashamed , you are contributing to the cover-up of crimes against humanity and for what , money? This message will probably get deleted ...
