Chinese construction workers are racing against time to construct a 1000-bed hospital in the provincial capital of Wuhan. The city is believed to be the epicenter of the deadly Coronavirus.

The authorities are aiming to complete the hospital within 10 days. Deputy Director-General Information Department at the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs Lijian Zhao wrote on Twitter that the Huoshenshan hospital is being completed at ‘Chinese speed’.

”We are racing against time. The 1st building of #Wuhan’s #Coronavirus hospital, Huoshenshan hospital, was completed in 16 hours. China Construction which built the hospital is the same company that built the Multan-Sukkur Motorway and the Centaurus. Let’s pray for Wuhan & China!.”

China State Construction Engineering, one of the companies building the hospital, says that they are doing all they could to overcome difficulties. More than 100 workers are currently working on the construction site.

Contrary to the spread rumors, the Foreign Office has confirmed on Sunday that all the Pakistani community members in Wuhan and other parts of China are safe from the coronavirus. The fast-spreading virus has killed dozens of people.

For safety, the government pf Pakistan has decided to install thermo scanners at all big airports of the country, including Wagha border crossing, to check travelers. This has been done so to contain the deadly virus.

“This ministry and the Pakistan Embassy in China are actively monitoring the situation of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China. The Embassy in Beijing and other sub-Missions in China are also in touch with the Pakistani community as well as Chinese authorities,” Foreign Office spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said.
