Completion of Chinese 1000-bed hospital sparks debate among Nigerians on Twitter

The newly-completed 1,000-bed hospital built by the Chinese city of Wuhan to contain and treat the deadly coronavirus has sparked a debate among Nigerians on social media.

The city began the construction of the hospital on Thursday 23 January and it has been completed within the specified 10 days period they plan to deliver the project.

The 269,000-square-foot building is one of two new hospitals that has been constructed in Wuhan.

Chinese state media shared a video showing the completed hospital on the internet.

Since the report of the hospital emerged on social media, some Nigerians have been debating the swift response of the Chinese government to the emergency situation as they mock the Nigerian government.

This happens with most public infrastructure. Usually kept moving at a very slow pace so as to keep including it in the Projects List for each incoming politician. Very profitable means for them to siphon public funds and make it look legal usually citing contractors defaulting.
