Adstoppi Blog | Hospital built in just 10 days to handle the coronavirus epidemic in China

Published by:


A 1,000-bed hospital built in just 10 days to handle the coronavirus epidemic in Wuhan, China, welcomed its first patients Monday.

Built specifically to handle patients infected with the novel coronavirus that has sickened thousands of people and left more than 360 dead, it took workers just 10 days to complete work on the Huoshenshan Hospital on the outskirts of the city with its 11 million residents, where the outbreak is believed to have originated.

At 10 a.m. Monday (9 p.m. Sunday E.T.) the hospital opened its doors and welcomed its first patients, according to Chinese state media. There was no information about the patients or their conditions.

Construction of the hospital began on Jan. 24 with a crew of 7,000 people working around the clock. Live video of the construction site was carried by Chinese state media and showed the sheer scale and speed of the project.

A second dedicated hospital with 1,300 beds is also expected to be ready later this week.

China's state news agency Xinhua reported Sunday the new hospital has a capacity for 1,000 beds, intensive care units and sections for diagnosis and infection control.

Hundreds of doctors and medical personnel have been drafted in from China's military to treat patients at the hospital, Xinhua also said.

Many of the 1,400 medical specialists have worked in the past to treat Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), which the novel coronavirus is related to, and the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone and Liberia, the agency added.

Project manager Fang Xiang whose team worked on the hospital was quoted by China Central Television (CCTV) Monday as saying that a project of this scale usually takes at least two years.

Xiaomi has officially unveiled the Mi Watch: an Apple Watch lookalike that runs a skinned version of Google Wear OS with prices starting at $185 (CNY 1,299). We first saw a glimpse of the Mi Watch last week when we noted its physical similarities to Apple's smartwatch. There’s a curved rectangular touchscreen, a knurled crown for scrolling, and a pill-shaped button right below that — all the same as Apple's device. But Xiaomi has now shared more details about the Mi Watch, and it does sound like a capable little competitor. Engadget reports that it has a 1.78-inch AMOLED display with 326ppi pixel density and a 570mAh battery, which Xiaomi claims is good for 36 hours of use. It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor and 1GB of RAM, and it comes with 8GB of internal...

Advantages Of Business Degrees

With an online business degree program, a student can enter what's called a virtual classroom at that time that's most convenient for her or him.

You're established and have a life. You go to work, pay your invoices and buy your groceries. You can own duties like a family to look after, along with other responsibilities as well.

Samsung just announced the Galaxy Book S, a new ultralight laptop powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx processor, onstage at its Unpacked event. It looks a little less like a Surface Laptop than we originally thought when we first saw the leaks, but it’s not far off. More importantly, with that Qualcomm processor it will perform much differently: with much longer battery life, but much less horsepower. RELATED Hands on with the Galaxy Book S, Samsung’s laptop and smartphone hybrid The 8cx is Qualcomm’s 7-nanometer chip designed for PCs, and Samsung says that this version of the Galaxy Book should have “40 percent greater CPU performance, 80 percent greater graphics performance, and added memory bandwidth” compared to the Galaxy Book 2. It is fanless, too, and the best feature...

One of the organizers of last year’s mass walkout of Google employees has left the company after saying she faced retaliation. Claire Stapleton helped bring together employees for the 20,000-person walkout protesting the company’s handling of sexual harassment allegations. In April, Stapleton and another organizer said they had faced retaliation from Google management and that the company had attempted to change their roles. Today, Stapleton announced in a Medium post that she left the company this week. She also published the internal post that she shared with employees announcing her departure. In the post, Stapleton says she had been enraptured with Google during her first years, but by 2017, saw the culture differently. “Google’s always had controversies and internal debates,...

MoviePass, the theater subscription service still inexplicably trying to stay in business, left thousands of customers’ credit card numbers and other sensitive pieces of data exposed for anyone to find on an online database, according to a report from TechCrunch. A cybersecurity expert named Mossab Hussain, from a Dubai-based firm named SpiderSilk, discovered the unprotected server and shared sample data sets with TechCrunch to confirm that MoviePass was in fact leaving the data unencrypted and accessible to anyone. According to TechCrunch, the data includes both MoviePass debit card numbers and the actual personal credit card details of customers, including credit card numbers, expiration dates, billing addresses, and names. TechCrunch says the data was enough in some cases to make...

On Monday we talked about some of the pressures stacking up on TikTok: increasing skepticism from Congress about its Chinese parent company ByteDance; a raft of new competitors slurping up venture capital and building their own short-form video apps powered by machine learning; and the public-perception risk that comes from keeping executives behind the scenes and responding to questions primarily via blog post. Well, today there was a new blog post. In it, Vanessa Pappas, TikTok's general manager for the United States, laid out her case that the management team behind the app is and will remain independent of demands from the Chinese government. The company is building out a US-based leadership team, a US-based content moderation team; and localized community guidelines. It pledged to...

5G home broadband will double internet speeds at half the cost, according to a new study commissioned by Three UK.

There’s no indication that Facebook’s Portal video chat devices have been a hit for the company, but that hasn’t stopped its development of other products. According to The Information, Facebook is continuing to work on a camera that can plug into a TV and double as a video-streaming device a la Roku or Fire TV. Facebook has reportedly approached Netflix, Disney, HBO, and Hulu about potentially including their subscription services on the hardware, which is expected to be announced this fall. This hybrid device has been reported on in the past (first by Cheddar), but the release time frame and talks with streaming partners are new to The Information’s story. Facebook has already directly confirmed that it intends to release “new form factors” of Portal-branded products in the...
