They did not build a hospital in 10 days they made a holding facility it would be impossible to build a hospital in 10 days

The answer is "by cutting corners". The hospital is already degrading and flooding.

May you please update this video to include the fact that Dr. Li WenLiang of Wuhan tried to raise the alarm when he found CoronaVirus cases rapidly spreading in mid December, but the local Chinese government forced him to sign a reprimand that stated he was lying/spreading propaganda. They silenced him. He’s now dead of the same virus he tried to warn us about. He’s a MARTYR and should be honored as such.

Built a hospital in 10 days?! Well actually that sounds absolutely plausible. Get a TON of people working constantly on one thing, without having to worry about zoning, use a pre-made plan/template you already have access to, have a prefabricated lot, and work constantly until the project is done. A lot of people will say this hospital is poorly built, but I believe it is not worse than any other hospital in the area, it was just built quickly because of a ultra dedication to it. That same concept can be brought to any building project here in the U.S. Red tape conversation aside (seriously I don't want to talk about red tape in the U.S) if you dedicate a large sector of people working constantly on 1 thing it would get done fairly quickly. Especially if they have the resources to do it on hand at the start.

Isn’t it leaking??? Building a hospital in 10 days is a very bad idea. Also it’s not a hospital if it has metal bars on windows...

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.
