Exhausted doctors were also seen sleeping on the floors of a hospital in China in their protective suits while, some others were snoozing in chairs and at their desks.
In China’s Wuhan district, where the virus seems to have originated, a brand new hospital was built with 1,000 beds within 16 hours to treat patients so, you can imagine the seriousness of the situation right now.
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 which built the Multan-Sukkor Motorway and the Centaurus. Let’s pray for Wuhan & China! pic.twitter.com/ENgZPO2RS1— Lijian Zhao 赵立坚 (@zlj517) January 27, 2020
According to reports, 20,630 people have been affected, out of which, 2,790 people are in critical condition.
27 countries including India, Nepal, Spain, Hong Kong and the US have confirmed cases with regards to this virus, which just goes onto show its devastating effects.
Those who are affected with this virus are being put in isolation wards and are being monitored but we have to say that the doctors and nurses who are working hard and risking their own lives deserve an applause.
Right now, we can only take precautionary measures but we hope the vaccine will be developed soon.
Let’s just take a moment and salute to these brave souls for risking their own lives and putting duty above anything else. Thank you!
