          Is it too late to emulate Beijing's Xiaotangshan model? Wuhan announced that it will build a temporary hospital in 6 days

          Compose: Liu Yan
          2020-01-24 02:16:00

          "The virus is spreading rapidly." As the pneumonia epidemic of a new coronavirus infection in Wuhan, China, intensified, following the closure of all exit corridors in Wuhan on January 23, Beijing time, the city's urban bus, subway, ferry, and long-distance passenger transportation were suspended on the night. Several sources show that the Wuhan Municipal Government requested the China Construction Third Bureau to follow the Beijing Xiaotangshan model to establish a temporary hospital in Wuhan Staff Sanatorium, Zhiyin Lake, Caidian District, Wuhan.

          On April 21, 2003, at the time when the SARS epidemic was the worst in the Chinese capital, Beijing decided to set up Beijing's first special infectious disease hospital in Xiaotangshan. "It only took 7 days and 7 nights to build a Xiaotangshan Infectious Disease Hospital with a construction area of ​​25,000 square meters and 1,000 beds. At the same time, all medicines, medical equipment and equipment were also in place." This SARS history Known as a world miracle.

          The Xiaotangshan Temporary Hospital admitted one-seventh of the SARS patients in China within two months. Its establishment was later regarded as the turning point of the severe SARS epidemic in Beijing.

          In recent days, the number of pneumonia patients diagnosed with new-type coronavirus infection in China has begun to increase sharply in various places. In the severely affected area, Wuhan “all isolation wards have been saturated”, “Some patients have reached the standard of hospitalization, but because there are no beds, Isolation can only be implemented at home, resulting in a new spread of the epidemic ", and the patients who have been admitted cannot perform pathogen detection in a timely manner, resulting in cross-infection, coupled with the lack of designated food and accommodation by medical staff, and the possibility of being infected by the outside world. Preventable and controllable.

          In response to the development of the pneumonia epidemic, Wuhan announced on the evening of the 23rd that the temporary infectious disease hospital to be built will be completed within 6 days. Wuhan CITIC Design Institute will produce the design drawings within 24 hours and will be constructed by the China Construction Bureau. The hospital will be in the form of a board room, with one or two storeys in height, with an initial plan of 1,000 container beds. The exact size and number of patients that can be accommodated in the future are uncertain.

          Judging from the various information circulating on the Internet, the construction of this temporary hospital in Wuhan is in the tension stage. Emergency vehicles such as engineering vehicles, large and small excavators, flatbed trucks, containers, goggles, protective clothing, medical gloves, medical masks, medical wastewater disinfection equipment, electrolytic salt water, and chlorine dioxide generators are being urgently collected by different departments. in.
          ...
          Although there are many voices on the Internet accusing Wuhan of the effective measures introduced against the epidemic being too few and too late, after all, it is already in operation and the temporary hospital is under construction. After the "closing of the city", all parts of China assisted Wuhan's critical illness and breathing. Doctors are still arriving one after another, "Wuhan Come!"

                I’ve seen many videos that have been posted. This one in particular is currently standing out as defining a very horrible scene.

                    I don't know where that is but no one is wearing a mask. And someone in a doctor's coat is on the floor while another doctor is walking around? Seems very odd for an infectious disease situation. I think a doctor was attacked and killed in a hospital not to long ago. Maybe this is a video of from event?

                        It could be a video of another incident. It is so hard to know with such short clips.
