It's a wonder of modern architecture

It's been alleged by undercover sources in China, that the hospital in Wuhan that was built from start to finish in 10 days, to house those suffering from the deadly Coronavirus, is made from sticky rice and papier mâché.

The Huoshenshan Hospital can be seen being constructed in overhead time-lapse footage in many places online, but people who were 'on the ground' at the time, say this was no regular construction work.

Walls and supporting floors were built entirely of a gooey mix of paper, glue, and wallpaper paste, and then soaked in cold water. When the frame of the building had been erected, it was covered by gelatinous rice, which, when dry, is the hardest substance known to man. The rice is all-weatherproof, and the hospital is expected to stand for more than 1,000 years.

It won't stand an earthquake, however, as it has no foundations whatsoever.

The current total of people infected is 20,000.

Plans to 'build' more hospitals are afoot.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
