The construction of the hospital named Hooshanshun has been completed in just eight days and it is the second hospital built to deal with the virus
What do we know about this hospital?
Construction of the hospital was completed on Sunday and will be inaugurated on Monday, according to Chinese state media.
According to local TV, more than 1,400 Chinese Army medical personnel are being brought to the new hospital in Wuhan who have experience dealing with the epidemic.
Another hospital in Leishinshan will be opened on Wednesday.
It is to be noted that hospitals in Hubei are currently under severe pressure as the number of people infected with the virus is increasing day by day.
According to the American newspaper The Washington Post, the staff at the hospital have begun wearing nappies because they have no time to use the toilet.
The current situation in Hubei Province
At present, hospitals in the province are also suffering from shortages of medicines and other essential supplies. Wuhan Children’s Hospital wrote on social media: ‘We have a shortage of medicines and other supplies, help us.’
In the videos posted on social media, it can be seen that there are long rows outside the hospitals.
In a video in Wuhan, one person speaks in a local accent that says it takes at least 10 hours for patients to reach doctors.
The University of Hong Kong estimates the total number of cases may be several times higher than the official figures. More than 75,000 people have died of the virus in Wuhan, the epicentre of the virus, experts say.
On Sunday, the government announced putting $ 170 billion into the economy to tackle the virus-triggered crisis.
UK pledges £ 20m for corona vaccine development
On the other hand, the UK government has donated £ 20m to develop the Corona vaccine.
UK Health Minister Matt Hancock says the money will help Britain make a new drug.
This support from the UK will be given to the epidemic prevention centre CEPI. CEPI is a global organization that can produce such vaccines in six to eight months.
CEPI chief executive Dr Richard Hachette says the vaccine has not been made in such a short time.
Even if biologists are successful, it will take time to experience the vaccine and pass the vaccine to medical institutions and sell it worldwide.
Dr. Hatsheet says, “We have very little time to develop this vaccine and have never done so in the vaccine sector.
“It is important to keep in mind that even if we succeed, there is no guarantee that we will still face further challenges in this regard.”
Response from other countries
The United States has banned the entry of foreign nationals living in China in the past two weeks, imposing an unusual public health emergency.
American citizens and residents returning from the province of Hubei will be kept in quarantine for 14 days.
People from the rest of China have been asked to review their health for the same amount of time.
The total number of cases in the United States is eight. The Pentagon has arranged quarantine for about 1,000 people coming to the United States from other countries.
1000 rooms in four military bases in California, Colorado and Texas have also been allocated for this purpose.
Australia has also called for citizens to return from China to Quarantine for two weeks, while several governments have also called back their citizens from China.
300 Indians returning from Wuhan arrived in Delhi on Saturday, while 100 Germans returned to Frankfurt that same day.
In the coming days, Thailand also plans to invite its citizens back from Wuhan.
According to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, Russia will call back hundreds of its citizens from Hubei province on Monday and Tuesday. Russia has also banned visa-free services for Chinese citizens.
