Drone footage taken on January 24, 2020, shows a mass of construction machines working at a site in Wuhan where the Chinese government is furiously beginning to build a new hospital to handle cases of a coronavirus that originated in the city.

The footage was provided to Storyful by ChinaFile, a magazine run out of the Center on US-China Relations at Asia Society.

Local hospitals have been overwhelmed by patients in recent days. Footage analyzed by Storyful on January 23, 2020, showed one medical facility crammed with masked crowds waiting for testing and care.

The new hospital — which is modeled on prefab facilities quickly erected during the SARS outbreak — is meant to house 1,000 beds. Authorities plan to complete construction in less than two weeks.

On January 24, the site, which Storyful geolocated to a location northwest of the Yangtze River, was still only dirt being excavated by workers. Credit: ChinaFile via Storyful

    It is about logistic efficiency.
    Don't forget that the Chinese built Tesla giga factory. From breaking the grounds to the roll out of the first car, it only took one year !!

    Well done China! Hey, next time, maybe build the hospital BEFORE the predictable pandemic occurs. We have found in developed countries that makes treatment faster.

    They're digging not leveling or grading, hap hazard graves.

    Just not sure that I believe that even on a prefab basis, they can actually build a thousand bed hospital in 2 months, let alone 2 weeks.... of all the things reported on this virus, this feels like the most concerning-

    Hospital? Yeah right. Either that or just another government censored mass grave.

    Why not commandeer the likes of sports gyms, community halls?
  • S
    The title is misleading and the video doesn't show a building being built.

    New York Unions take note.

    Frankly, this looks like a bunch of colorful insects grubbing away at the dirt. Four teams of Amish barn builders would have finished it yesterday.
