Video of the week: Wuhan hospital built in just 10 days



Engineers can change the world. In the midst of a crisis, talented engineers working together towards a common goal are able to deliver the impossible. 

Never has this been more clear than in this incredible video showing the construction of an entire hospital in just 10 days to cope with the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan.

The 25,000 square metre Huoshenshan Hospital was built between the 24th January and the 3rd February. The first coronavirus patient was brought into the facility for treatment on the 5th February.
