    Btw the only reason why this was able to be done is also the main criticism point of china. The people listen to china. They say, they do. They can just say "ok heres land make a hospital in 10 days or you die. Heres the funding you need." And shit will get done. You try that in america and see how it goes "heres some land make a hospital in 10 days. Heres some funding." Protests erupts as it is in peoples "backyard", another protest for more funding, more protests for workers rights, protests for not using local companies marterials and nothing gets done. Im not saying that china is supreme, but china is supreme in this aspect. Sure their government can use a little touch up but it is exactly why they can make a hospital out of really big boi legos in 10 days

    To fight against Covid 19, the government should have a full plan such as increasing hospital capacity to treat patients, increasing testing of people, following up every case to find the source of infection, coordinating the production and acquisition of surgical masks and medical equipment for medical staff, also production and acquisition of surgical masks for every citizen to wear, enacting laws to shutting down places and businesses temporarily, requiring people to wear surgical masks and keeping social distance and educating citizens to fully cooperate. In addition, citizens should follow all the rules and carry out all measures 100%. If all governments and their citizens carry out these measures 100%, I am sure we can reduce the spread of Covid 19 to minimum. When vaccines arrive, victory is near.

    To everyone in the comments: Why can't you just enjoy things? yes there are a LOT of valid critisisms for both the chinese government, and for other governments, but thats not what this video is about. this is (in my opinion) a video celebrating the absolutely insane stunts people can pull of if we decide we REALLY want to. No matter the long term stability or efficiency or whatever, this was a complete building created from scrap in TEN DAYS. Just... idunno, respect that. the builders, the doctors, the engineers, everyone. but above all: the planners. orchastrating this must have been hell, and I have the deepest respect for anyone who was able to do this without going insane. So yeah, just be nice and simply enjoy stuff for once. Life is more fun that way

    There is this Chinese post on to one of the most liked comments, I'm writing when it had 1.7K LIKES, so I'm translating it to English so that people understand. It's by this person. 嗷的一声喵 that happened 5 months ago Ok so google translate :- Huoshenshan Hospital was built like this First of all, you need an urgent order: led by China Construction Third Bureau, Wuhan Construction Engineering, Wuhan Municipal Administration, Hanyang Municipal Administration and other enterprises participated in the construction, and commanded 7,500 builders and nearly 1,000 on the 50,000 square meters of tidal flat slope by Wuhan Zhiyin Lake. Taiwan's machinery and equipment have established a military position to all Chinese and the suffering Wuhan citizens-"in ten days, build a life-saving hospital with 1,000 beds." Next, you need Beijing Zhongyuan International Engineering Design and Research Institute to complete the design and construction drawings of Xiaotangshan Hospital 17 years ago in 78 minutes. Then it was submitted to Wuhan CITIC Architectural Design Institute without reservation, and Dr. Huang Xiqiu, a national survey and design master, repeatedly asked the experience gains and losses. You need CITIC Architectural Design Institute to convene 60 designers within one hour, and at the same time set up public welfare projects, contact hundreds of BIM designers across the country to participate, and go all out to fight: design plans within 24 hours, within 60 hours Consult with the construction unit to finalize the construction drawings. You need Wuhan Hangfa Group to quickly enter the site to start site leveling, road and drainage engineering construction; at the same time, two listed companies High Energy Environment and Dongfang Yuhong form an emergency engineering construction team responsible for anti-seepage engineering, sewage treatment and medical waste transfer facilities Construction; in the most difficult time, China Railway Heavy Industries, a subsidiary of China Railway Industry, must be called upon to quickly increase assistance to catch up with the construction period. You need the State Grid, and more than 260 electric power workers work continuously for 24 hours without sleep. Complete the relocation of two 10kV lines, the placement of 24 box-type transformers, and the laying of 8,000-meter power cables before January 31, and start power transmission on time. You need Yiwei Lithium Energy. Before the laying of power cables is completed, an emergency silent generator car will be provided to solve the emergency power supply problem of key equipment such as communication base stations. You need Huawei, China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, China Tower, China Electronics, China Information Technology, Zhongke and other front and back companies to work closely and coordinate operations. After 36 hours of rapid 5G signal coverage, cloud resources are also delivered. , Computing and storage equipment for the core system, and a remote consultation system with the PLA General Hospital. Then you can set up a camera behind the three sweet-scented osmanthus trees to start the live broadcast, and then summon tens of millions of cloud supervisors to watch the "Delivering Ash Sect" and "Song Mud" supported by Sany, Zoomlion, and Xugong Machinery. "Jiang" are busy 24 hours a day. You need PetroChina’s on-site refueling truck, and requisition the Sinopec Zhiyin Avenue gas station to provide oil protection for the project site, while providing instant noodles, boiling water, meeting venues and temporary toilets. You need all the production staff of the Three Gorges Group Ezhou Power Plant to be stationed in the plant to provide guarantees for the use of electricity in Wuhan; China Railway Construction Expressway gives priority to the release of materials from the Huoshenshan Hospital; Baowu Steel, Zheshang Zhongtuo, and Minmetals Development provide steel; China National Building Materials provides gypsum board ,keel. You have to use food delivered from outside China and grain and oil donated by COFCO to provide three meals a day for thousands of workers; Hubei Zhongbai Warehousing and Alibaba’s Taoxianda will build a "contactless cash register" within one day. "Supermarkets provide convenient and safe supplies of daily necessities for workers and medical workers. During construction, you need cement from Huaxin Co., Ltd., fireproof coatings from Hebei Junhui, galvanized round steel from Zhengda pipes, Huamei energy-saving rubber and plastic insulation materials, 5931 toilets and faucets from Huida Sanitary Ware, and fire alarms from Bay Security 3,500 sets of integrated houses from three companies, including industrial equipment, Jiaqiang Energy Conservation, spheroidal graphite cast iron pipes from Xinxing Jihua, municipal and construction pipelines from Yonggao, 4800 sets of steel components from China First Metallurgical Group, and 50 sets from Zhuzhou Megmeet Power equipment, 2000 valves from Shanghai Guanlong Company. The house is built and then renovated, you need 100 management staff and 500 construction staff from China Construction Shenzhuang to complete the indoor and outdoor floor glue laying, bathroom and buffer room floor tiles, and the interior decoration tasks of more than 200 wards in 3 days. After the decoration is completed, you need a full set of more than 2,000 computer equipment provided by Lenovo Group and a professional IT service team stationed on site; all public LCD screens provided by TCL Electronics; tablet computers provided by Xiaomi; Ziguang, Fiberhome Communications, Qi Anxin Provided network and security equipment; Internet hospital cloud platform provided by Weining Health. Professional equipment is indispensable. You need CT equipment from Shanghai Film United Medical, Shanghai Xintou, Neusoft Group, special medical air conditioners for ICU and operating rooms of Weifang Yashi, thermal imaging chips from Shanghai Integrated Circuit Industry Association, Shanghai Xinnuofei 930 sets of UV disinfection lamps, OP lighting professional lighting equipment, Lepu Medical’s 2000 electronic thermometers and 700 finger clip oximeters, Huiqing Technology and Aojiahua’s professional air purifiers, Orion Star’s medical service robots ; Ouyada Home's property management team and bed supplies. All the above-mentioned material transportation relies on the domestic and global green channels jointly opened by Chinese logistics giants such as SF, Zhongtong, Shentong, Yunda, EMS, Alibaba logistics platform, etc., to transport relief materials for Wuhan from all over the world for free. Finally, let the professional team install Gree air conditioners, and wait for Haier's engineers to rush to the site with the refrigerator on their backs because the road is closed, and put the Midea water dispenser and water heater in place. Outside, dozens of negative pressure ambulances donated by Yutong Bus and Jiangling Group are ready to go. If you think of it, someone will provide it in time; if you don't think of it, someone will provide it. A file cabinet worth 200,000 yuan, 14 Luoyang furniture companies rushed to work overnight, and only told you after delivery, "No need to buy, we donate." The 8,000 catties of winter melon, Shanghai greens, and coriander were delivered by Wang Guohui, a retired veteran from Baiji Town, Shenqiu, Henan, who drove 300 kilometers to the construction site on New Year's Eve. One ton of "Zizhong Blood Orange" was selected and sent by Huang Cheng, a farmer from Shuinan Town, Zizhong County, Sichuan Province, who is not well-off. The 400 benches were donated by Taobao shopkeeper Jin Chen who had been in business for less than a year and couldn't bear to see the workers sitting on the floor and rushing to work day and night. ... There is no "infrastructure madman", There is only the "speed of life and death" that races against time. No need to "shock and applaud." As long as you never give up and clenched your teeth. Hold your breath and endure the pain. The dragons in the village give you the hardest scales, Even if he is scarred. .

And also, at the end of this video, you were saying there were many mild symptom patients were turn down by Wuhan Hosptial. So, I suggest you should make another video to show the world how the USA treated this crisis. That should be documentary video. I don’t see anyone on ISpulse making that kind of videos.
