Many time-lapse videos show how rapidly the 1,000-bed hospitals are being built.

Multiple videos show the shockingly rapid building of two hospitals in China's quarantined Wuhan region to help fight the deadly coronavirus outbreak.

According to the People's Daily, around 10 million people tuned in to watch the live stream of the entire process of building the two hospitals. Isolated time-lapse videos show how quickly construction workers put up structures.

Huoshenan Hospital is due to open on February 3rd, with a 1,000-bed capacity. Leishenshan Hospital, on the other hand, is due to open February 5, with a capacity of 1,300 beds. Construction on the former began on Friday, while it started on Monday for the latter.

The two hospitals are located about 40 km apart.

The two hospitals are being built quickly to accommodate and respond to the cases of coronavirus which originated in Wuhan, with some medics in the region describing overcrowded hospitals and a lack of medical equipment due to the epidemic.
