With a country like China, you can't be too sure of the news that is put out. I am pretty certain the death toll is higher than they are reporting. They closed off cities ffs.
That's what I was thinking also, cause like they are legit building a new hospital just for that but the death toll was like 26 in a couple of days. For a population that big this is like as much as people dying from a cold.
Having some idea of how China and the CCP works, the hospital that is being built is probably just a PR thing. Just a way for China to save face from this disaster.
And it is being built in a week, which means regular shit Chinese quality and it will collapse at some point like many of those crap quality ghost town buildings.
