I have just spoken with staff at my local hospital in Sichuan and all doctors are told they must take part in a lottery to decide who will go.  Every hospital in China the same.  They will have the staff.

 

Transport with gun-toting soldiers hanging about probably will help with their recruiting.... :ph34r:

 A second hospital will have a capacity of 1,300 beds, which will add to the 1,000 beds of the first hospital (construction within 10 days had been announced on Friday)

 

Le chantier de construction, à Wuhan, mobilise des dizaines de pelleteuses.

Here is the state sponsored version I

I hope the world is supplying all the material they need to fight this. We all need to pull together as the human race for a virus respects no races or borders and shows us how vulnerable,  we the most evolved animal on the planet are to this the most primitive form of life.

So the authors are mostly from Lancaster University in the UK, and the article hasn't as yet been peer reviewed.

Dr Jonathan Read

Senior Lecturer in Biostatistics

Research Overview

My research interests focus on understanding the transmission and evolutionary dynamics of infectious diseases. A substantial part of this interest lies in understanding transmission patterns and their relation to networks of interaction between hosts. This has motivated the development of methods and ways to measure social contact patterns, to improve population-scale and individual-based models of transmission. I am also intersted in understanding the behavioural responses of people to infections and epidemics, as well as interaction patterns at larger spatial scales and human mobility modelling.

It does look like he has quite a long history in his field, and appears to have participated in past research on various disease transmission issues in China.

True but they are getting info out there and adding to the pool of data - more learned ones will follow. The internet at its worst spreads panic and despair (sorry) but at it's best crowdsources a thousand or more brains to solve a problem. There is hope and the Chang is kicking in. 

 

The last paragraph of that article is one of the most important:

 

Read and his coauthors acknowledge that at this point all predictions are shaky, given the limited information available. But with an outbreak that’s moving as fast as this one, models like theirs are often the best tools available for public health officials to decide how to combat what’s coming next.

History, first pandemic measured by the number hospitals constructed per week.

 

Has anyone thought this just might be China's finest hour?

This is China's great moment to show to the rest of the world, how effective it can be.

Apparently there has long been a game where you try to destroy the world. 

 

 

There are quite a few similar games.

By adding calcium chloride to the mix it will set in about 2 hrs.

It will hasten initial set , but strength will not have developed

With respect the time for China to do that would have been last month when this virus first broke. Instead, the local Wuhan government arrested those who tried to warn about it and organised huge banquets to say that it was no big deal.

We all should know the story of the boy who called the wolf. 

 

There is a good reason, why each and every flu epidemic is not yelled through the media as "This is going to kill us all!". If that should happen, we all would have reacted to this news as "Oh yeah, one of those daily zombie invasion news again". 

 

Where is your claim "Instead, the local Wuhan government arrested those who tried to warn about it and organised huge banquets to say that it was no big deal." coming from? 

 

That sounds ridiculous claim, but I'm all fine to change my mind provided I can get reliable proof of your claim.

hope maybe the 4th one will stay up

 

and after this all blows over

- the building gets razed by inbuilt Charges, to encapsulate the last evidence

 - the building becomes either a massive resort? or cheap housing

No buddy, had precautions been put in place last month then it could, most likely would, have been far less damaging that it is right now and will prove to be in the coming weeks.

 

As for the claim of the huge banquet, it's here.

If you endeavour to stop presenting as a unreconstructed Sinophobe and join the 21st century.

I'm not a Sinophobe at all. In fact, I like Chinese, meaning those from the PRC as well as Taiwan and Hong Kong. I do not like the Communist police state apparatus and its lies, aggression, and totalitarian control over the media. In fact, I came out of retirement to teach PRC graduate students, because they had what I consider an eager and open desire to learn new things, unlike the entitled brats I taught at American universities.
