Anyone with any critical thinking at all knew this weeks ago. They were building new temporary hospitals to have space for the sick… in a city with beds for many, many more people than the reported figures. This is why the response of western governments was so pathetic, absolute complacency.
Wuhan is a big city with many hospitals. It would be like if NY said it had a few hundred sick people, but they were also building new hospitals in a hurry to house patients, and the city was quarantined, and the rest of the world went: “Oh, hey, that’s normal. Nothing to worry about here.”
