China closes 1st ‘pop-up’ coronavirus hospital, built in 10 days, after last group of recovered patients discharged

…from Russia Today, Moscow

[ Editor’s Note: This hopefully will be good news for the financial markets. If China could get control of the major outbreak that it had, its success will be a model for others to follow. 

It is projecting to close out another temporary 2000 bed hospital by the end of the month, leaving traditional medical facilities to deal with the remaining ill.

Iran is struggling with some its top level of government people and family members dying of the virus, those in the senior citizen high death rate zone. Everyone older person needs to lay low while this spread works its way through.

But Iran has moved fast on ramping up the supply logistics to deal with the spread. Every country will have its unique issues to deal with. A lot will have been learned for the next time that this happens, which will save lives and the economic convulsions we have hadJim W. Dean ]

China beating down coronavirus

– First published … March 03, 2020

Authorities in Wuhan have closed the city’s first makeshift hospital after discharging the last batch of 34 recovered coronavirus patients, as the rate of infection in the city has dropped dramatically.

Wuhan was the site of the original outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic, and the city’s response, building a new hospital in less than two weeks to handle Covid-19 patients, was seen as a modern marvel with the total number of hospital beds in the city eventually going from 5,000 to 23,000.

The hospital’s last patients were given the all clear late Monday, according to state broadcaster CCTV, amid a sharp decline in Covid-19 cases in Hubei province, with less than 200 new cases reported for the first time since January. Outside of Hubei province, there were only six new cases confirmed in mainland China over the weekend. 

The hospital is one of 16 built across Hubei province to handle the epidemic, in which at least 12,000 people have been treated.

In China alone, the total number of officially reported Covid-19 infections stands at 80,026 with the death toll reaching 2,912 as of Sunday evening.

The head of Wuhan’s largest temporary hospital, located in an exhibition centre with beds for 2,000 patients, confirmed plans to shutter that facility by the end of March.

“If nothing special happens, I expect the operation of our makeshift hospital, the biggest one in Wuhan, could complete its historical mission by the end of March,” said Dr. Zhang Junjian, the director of the hospital.

  1. China may have screwed up in a lab or vaccine trials but there’s evidence they are getting it right in treatment of the corona virus. In a registered clinical trial at Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan, China, 24 grams of IV Vitamin C are given daily to bolster the immune systems of the affected corona virus patients. There’s much evidence for it’s success in dealing with respiratory issues especially in protecting the alveolar tissues and microvasculature where oxygen – CO2 exchange takes place. If you want to protect yourself in addition to the CDC recommendations read up on taking extra vitamin C…
