How China totally bungled their response to this crisis, spent the first weeks threatening and arresting anybody who reported on it, including doctors; had a feast for 100 000 people in Wuhan with shared plates to show there's no problem; waited 3 weeks to send experts to the region; massively lied to the world about the extent of the crisis and allowed it to massively spread; continue to lie about the situation and pat themselves on the back for their excellent response, because the state feelings are so sensitive that they can't stand the least criticism without breaking out in tears; lock down neighbourhoods with force and drag people suspected of infection to mass detention facilities; steal private cars for state use (strangely, only Ferraris are required for the people's war against the disease;) and according to a recent report by a Chinese university, probably released the disease in the first place due to patent incompetence at their bio weapons lab 300 meters from the food market widely blamed for the outbreak. The only real tragedy for the Chinese dictatorship is they won't be able to sell the organs of those who died from the virus in military hospitals, as they do with those forcibly removed from political dissidents by the millions. But this is China, so in all probability, they will sell them anyway.

World: ah! China builds a hospital in 10 days! US: I am not impressed at all. World: Why not? US: Guess I can destroy this hospital less than 10 minutes.

And now, just two weeks after its completion, that hospital is already leaking and crumbling. Well done! Chinese engineering at its best!

This video is not reflecting all the truths of what happened during the contruction process, wokers are infected with the virus due to poor hygiene. Moreover, after 5 days of the opneing of the hospital only 86 beds are available for use. I've been a fan of the channel beacuse of it's informational videos but this seems more like a propagenda from China to me.

Did you guys forget the news that it collapsed 10 days afterwards? Read the news. The rain entered the building, and frosting caused expansion and destroyed the buildings already.

Yahhh, bullshit! This wasn't an accident spontaneously materialized in the local exotic goods market. That marketplace was too easy , too convenient. The authorities just scapegoated the most convenient place around. This is a biological weapon, intentionally developed to sweep through contemporary human settlements. Take care everyone. And good luck. We're gonna need it .

Dont be rediculous. Its a marketing stunt. When the worker handed over the hospital, only 85 beds or so can be used. It lacks equipment and so forth, not fully functioning basically its just an empty shell. Also did you realise the window have metal bar cover all over it. Its to prevent patients escape! Also the army is "monitoring" the whole hospital. Its a concentration camp. So that you will die there and not roar around. They're not expect to cure anyone.

In india , nothing is being done unless it affects brahmins if anythig affects OBC/ST/ST/minorities , they would have themselves created extermination centers to kill rather than building hospitals .

We'd be so screwed in the US since having multiple companies / state agencies coordinate would mean a crap ton of deadlock or bottlenecks. Even within a company, there's a lot of "Oh that's not my department" bs that slows everything down

Building a hospital in record time is laudable.But, more importantly containing the virus from spreading is of paramount importance.

Not only is your timeline inaccurate, but your conclusion at the end of your video is ridiculously inaccurate as well. No, the virus is not "outpacing" China, because the number of infections has been dropping for the third day in a row now.

Your timeline of the start of this coronavirus outbreak is extremely inaccurate. I suggest you check out Nathan Rich's channel and his most recent video presenting the most accurate timeline of the outbreak among all videos on youtube.
