Built in 10 days, China’s Virus Hospital Takes 1st Patients

first_imgThe ruling Communist Party’s military wing, the People’s Liberation Army, sent 1,400 doctors, nurses and other personnel to staff the Wuhan hospital, the official Xinhua News Agency said. The government said earlier that some have experience fighting SARS and other outbreaks. The state newspaper Beijing Daily applauded construction workers and suppliers who cut short their Lunar New Year holiday. It hailed the rapid construction as a political triumph, despite complaints leaders in Wuhan endangered the public by failing to respond fast enough to reports of a dangerous new disease. The Wuhan treatment centers mark the second time Chinese leaders have responded to a new disease by building specialized hospitals almost overnight. As severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, spread in 2003, a facility in Beijing for patients with that viral disease was constructed in a week. The first patients arrived at Huoshenshan Hospital at 10 a.m. on Monday, according to state media. They gave no details of the patients’ identities or conditions. Newspapers published day-by-day accounts of crews clearing a riverside plot, laying the foundation, installing sewage and electrical equipment and assembling prefabricated rooms that were shipped to the site. “Today’s Chinese people are more deeply aware: where I stand is my China,” the newspaper said. “When this national sense of ownership is awakened, our mentality in the face of disasters becomes more mature.” The building has specialized ventilation systems and double-sided cabinets that connect patient rooms to hallways and allow hospital staff to deliver supplies without entering the rooms. It is equipped with infrared scanners to warn if any employees show signs of the disease’s distinctive fever, the website Economy Net reported, citing the company that provided the technology. In other cities, the government has designated hospitals to handle cases of the new virus. In Beijing, the Xiaotangshan Hospital built in 2003 for SARS is being renovated by construction workers. The government has yet to say whether it might be used for patients with the new disease.

China’s death toll from a new virus has increased to 304 with more than 14,000 cases, amid warnings from the World Health Organization that other countries need to be prepared in the event the disease spreads among their populations. (Xiao Yijiu/Xinhua via AP) About half of the two-story, 60,000-square meter (600,000-square foot) building is isolation wards, according to the government newspaper Yangtze Daily. It has 30 intensive care units. Authorities have cut most road, rail and air access to Wuhan and surrounding cities, isolating some 50 million people, in efforts to contain the viral outbreak that has sickened more than 17,000 people and killed more than 360. Doctors can talk with outside experts over a video system that links them to Beijing’s PLA General Hospital, according to the Yangtze Daily. It said the system was installed in less than 12 hours by a 20-member “commando team” from Wuhan Telecom Ltd. The Huoshenshan Hospital was built by a 7,000-member crew of carpenters, plumbers, electricians and other specialists, according to Xinhua.

(Xiao Yijiu/Xinhua via AP) Huoshenshan Hospital and a second 1,500-bed facility due to open this week were built by construction crews who are working around the clock in Wuhan, the central city where the outbreak was first detected in December. Some 50 million people are barred from leaving Wuhan and surrounding cities.

Trucks were shown arriving in the middle of the night carrying rolls of insulation and other materials. BEIJING (AP) – The first patients arrived Monday at a 1,000-bed hospital built in 10 days as part of China’s sweeping efforts to fight a new virus that is causing global alarm. The name Huoshenshan means God of Fire Mountain. The second hospital, Leishenshan, means God of Thunder Mountain. Before this week’s addition of 2,500 new beds, Wuhan had 6,754 in hospitals designated for virus patients, according to the website TMTpost.com. It said authorities were considering assigning another 2,183 beds to virus cases at the city’s other hospitals. A Chinese company donated “medical robots” to deliver medicines and carry test samples, according to the Shanghai newspaper The Paper.last_img read more

Remembering Owen Hart – 18 Years Later

first_imgTomorrow (May 23rd) represents the 18-year anniversary of the most tragic moment in Pro Wrestling History as it is the 18-year anniversary of Owen Harts death.  It is hard for this journalist, and most die- hard wrestling fans not to get a little choked up when looking back.Hart was one of the most popular heels in history.  An oxymoron I know, but simply because fans LOVED booing him.  He was a jokester in the locker room and someone all the boys loved.  There isn’t anyone that wrestled with and against Owen who can say a bad word about him.Hart was part of the most famous family in Pro Wrestling History.  The Hart family is known worldwide and is considered Royalty amongst most wrestling fans.  Sadly, his life would end short on May 23, 1999 as part of the Over The Edge Pay Per View.  His rigging broke as he was supposed to descend from the catwalk over 90 feet above.  He would crash to his death in front of a packed house at The Kemper Arena in Kansas City.  Paramedics would try working on him, but it was clear the fall would be fatal.As sad as the ending of his life and career was, a father of two and loyal husband, it doesn’t take away from what was an incredible career.  Owen Hart will forever be one of the most beloved figures in Pro Wrestling History.  Let us take a brief look back at some of his best moment’s, shall we?

Rain gives Windies hope of draw

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (CMC):The Windies’ hopes of saving the decisive third Test were boosted here yesterday after persistent rain forced the complete abandonment of the penultimate day of the contest at Old Trafford.The inclement weather that was forecast arrived as scheduled well before the start, keeping players off the field and ensuring that ground-staff kept the playing area covered throughout the day.Officials eventually called time on the day late in the scheduled final session, after it became evident no play would be possible.The abandoned day worked in the Caribbean side’s favour, leaving them with 98 overs to survive today, the final day, to save the Test and retain the Wisden Trophy.Set an improbable 399 for victory after England declared their second innings on 226 for two late on Sunday’s third day, the Windies stumbled to the close on 10 for 2, with seamer Stuart Broad capturing both wickets to move his career tally to 499.They lost John Campbell for a duck in the second over of the innings, caught at slip by captain Joe Root, before also losing nightwatchman Kemar Roach, caught at the wicket for four, two overs later.Shai Hope, unbeaten on four, and opener Kraigg Brathwaite, two, will carry the Windies’ fight on the final day.The series is tied 1-1 after the Windies won the opening Test at Southampton and then lost the second by 113 runs at Old Trafford last week.last_img read more
