    2. Darth Tiberius

    3. Matt Kaczmarczyk

      england: builds a train line in 40 years china: builds a hospital in 10

    5. Kathryn Carter

      What an impressive response by China & construction company. We should all acknowledge the effort & expertise in action here.

    6. mike buglioli

      These are not hospitals, they are jails where people are just fed and if they live, great, if not, oh well.

    7. PyroRomancer

      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.

      How China managed to fool the west into thinking they were able to manage the Coronavirus and safe their population. Yes propaganda still works...

    9. MaryLiz Games

      They did that in 10 days, and here in Shetland they spent like 20 years just debating about building a new high school in Lerwick (Shetland's capital), to replace the now old one.

      china is hiding the real numbers until now just as they did coverup the virus... they even rejected help from the usa and soon after whined about the usa not helping them...

    12. thot

      These are not hospitals But quarantine zones People there don't have any medicine So thare isn't any machins, water etc just zone where sick people stay Information in this video is not exactly true And they are locking them in their houses witch metal bars ( you can see this on twiter or on mr.obvius yt chanel) Sorry for my English 😓

    13. Shivas Thong

      Nah those are tiny cells for the infected.

    14. Eshwara Shawn

      Normal made in China.. just like LEGO build!!

    15. shah

      Long live democracies. 😴😴😴😴

    16. Ron McDon

      having lived in china for 6 years, they do build super fast. they built a mall across the street from me in a freaking year. they go 24 hours a day, 2 shifts. day shift and night shift. i actually hated that fucking night shift

    17. Jason Salim

      Meanwhile DNC can’t run election on small state.

    18. siddhant agrawal

      In india it would take 10 years. And i am not just making jokes, it would literally take 10 year to build this much big goverment hospital.

    19. Jasmine Edwards

      Smh America needed step they game up

      While many hate communism, there are good to it if the government is aware of what it needs to do for its ppl. It is a country of 1 billion ppl and chaos is easy of there are no iron fist control. With that said, this enables the country to do almost anything it wanted to at the fastest and cheapest rate. Unlike US where military contractors and other private companies gets huge chunks of money from the development. It's idea is wages of ppl must be sufficient Vs the development. When cost are low, they can afford to pay workers better. This can be reflected by huge amount of Chinese going for holidays around the world. It's white and blue collar groups are growing and this sustain the country. Most major cooperation are owned or co-owned by the government thus diverting back the money to the country for development such as railway and roads. This is something the few rich at West will not allow to happen. Each country has its unique way to handle situations and in China, they know their strength is people. They have lot and lot of people.

      China: Builds a hospital in 10 days Also China: Attempts to cover up the Wuhan virus instead of actually treating it, as a result it has spread to a multitude of different countries. Still refuses to reveal the true death toll and number of infected to save face.

    22. OneAndOnly Lokey

      When this shit collapses in a few years. We will know they just BS for 10 days.

    23. Eason Lin

      Speed is not the point dude and never try to describe the event as if Chinese government did it well they didn't. They hid things and even fined a doc who originally said that there's the virus. And to those who admire the 10-day shit: would you like to give up the process of discussion, the voting rights, freedom of speech, freedom of news, rule of law, democracy and a lot of things you have now to achieve that shit? Understand the situation better then talk please

    24. Chicken

      Its is Mostly Old People dying from the Virus

    25. joker 69

      Actually,You're wrong. China constructed the hospital in just 8 days.

    26. worldofpaul12

      Wendover: "It began with an ordinary event" Also Wendover: "when a man ate a wild ass bat"

    27. Bruised Lee

      That’s how they fast to cover up dead toll.

    28. 1mikhaelone

      04:20 this is what you came here for

    29. long yap

      broke in 3 days after raining

    30. Electro-Cute

      They didn't build a hospital. They built a glorified warehouse for people to get cross contaminated in. It is a morgue.

    31. Andrew Ferguson

      Yeah right a real functioning hospital lol

    32. Southern Romanian

      Comments are full of China shills.

    33. Gregory Ashton

      Quick answer: Propaganda

    34. Gregory Ashton

      It’s emerged that it might not have been from eating the bats, but from scientists carrying out tests on bats.

    35. Steve Pierre

      It's literally a death camp not a hospital, If you see a leak footage from the patients who treated there the building is begin to crumble already, the walls and ceiling is falling down and water is leaking everywhere, you can catch the virus just being there...Lmao!!

    36. The5thSaints

      hospital and quarantine center are not the same thing

    37. yayat kostaman

      China : How to build a hospital in ten days. Corona : How to kill 100 people in a day. China : ??????????

    38. Sheryl Ramsey

      Well it’s not holding up that well.

    39. nhat vinh ly

      if you wanna build a hospital in 10 days . go live in china and get please get the virus

    40. Zack Scriven

      It's a conspiracy.

    41. Tuan Nguyen

      This is nothing new to China because in 2003 China built the hospital in a week for SARS epidemic.

    42. Tuan Nguyen

      I believe this can happen in other countries too except the US because the US has all the bs rules and laws which prevent all the lawsuit arise in the future.

    43. chendaddy

      I remember when I moved to DC in 2004, they said they planned to have a metro line out to Dulles Airport in ten years. I thought to myself, wow ten years is a really long time, but that'd be extremely convenient. It's been 16 years. The metro line still doesn't go out to Dulles Airport. #USA

    44. Newt

      Small error at the beginning of the video.. It hasn't been confirmed that one ate an infected animal. Transmission route not confirmed.

    45. Greg E

      Falling apart after a month..Watch at 24:10.

    46. Greg E

      Too bad it's already falling apart..

    47. mikeybhoy28

      China: Builds a hospital in 10 days UK: Fixes a small stretch of motorway in 3 years that by the time they reach the end, the first section needs to be re-repaired again.

    48. Jackie Scum

      It doesn’t mean anything if it’s a pos. The hospital is leaking badly already.

    49. anastasiagirl1342

      They should have stopped the flights.

    50. Slick Pickle

    51. Sarukh Khan King of The World

    52. man wah

      How China Built a Hospital in 10 Days AND Falling Apart Due to Winds and Snow in 3 days lul

    53. Jose antonio Paul

      That's how it get it done.god bless China .

    54. CurtisCT

      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.

    55. Jame Htoo

      Is not hospital 🏥 bro is empty room to put people 😫

    56. Zevip

      well, thats why china is number 1. And almost 45 to 60% of things we have is made from china.

    57. 陈思羽

      we don't know if the first person who got it from eating or contacting wild animals... most likely contacting since contacting is a much bigger risk...

    58. ZekE DaK

      They ate a bat that's how they did it

    59. Robin Lamott

      UMM People have been eating the weirdest wild animals since the beginning of time, that's just BS. This came from a US lab, to destroy China

    60. blattimus

      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?
