After a rousing verbiage on the N.H.S. spending including completely re building the Victorian hospital in Manchester and the promise of 40 new hospitals in the next ten years,

"Chinese government to build 1000 bed hospital in ten days in Wuhan"
"In 2003 a Beijing hospital was built in a week after the SARS outbreak"

O.k. so it will mainly be of a prefabricated construction but a hospital is a hospital, my hats off to them, it wouldn't hurt for this government to take a leaf out of their book. The Chinese government is very far away from being perfect, I'm not saying it is, but in Wuhan's and Beijing's cases they didn't sit about discussing it for months and months it needed to be done so they're getting on with it.

Update on the big bong fund....it's been scrapped and the monies raised going to charity.
Anybody who donated to that idea has obviously more money than sense.

Also the Wuhan hospital, apparently they have started on a second hospital there and they are hoping they will open within a couple of days of each other.

Sorry Fly....H+S ???... not with you on that.

Perhaps workers Health + Safety issues don't slow things down in China  (y)

aaah... with you now.

I totally agree, health and safety and the Chinese government are words that don't readily trip off the tongue.
Most Asian countries are the same though, I know that doesn't make it right but in this case {I'm assuming} bungalow style prefabs will be slotted together like Lego. Manpower has never been a problem in China.

Over 1300 medical staff will be drafted in to help in the new hospitals and the original {overwhelmed}hospital, most of these are military personnel.

Health and safety are at the forefront of building regs in this country, but that doesn't stop certain building firms sailing very close to the wind on certain things, they just do what's necessary to get things passed. Look how long it's taking to get the Grenfell cladding fiasco sorted, apparently half way through last year over 20,000 such buildings were STILL covered in the same/ similar cladding as Grenfell because righting this "mistake" is going to cost money.

 20,000 new police officers in 2 years.

Now finally revealed.... to get 20,000 bobbies on the beat in 2 years the government would have to recruit at least 50,000 candidates if it's to reach it's target.
This is to cover those already in the police that, during that time period, are going to retire, those on long term sick and those who are so fed up they are going to jack it in.
Plus the recruits who will not be considered as they are unsuitable and those that, during training, don't make the grade.

Doesn't sound that easy now!
