Britain has built the world's largest intensive care unit

British healthcare workers and military engineers worked together to overhaul London’s ExCel centre, which hosts major international and national conferences and exhibitions, and in just nine days, built a mobile hospital. “There is nothing surprising in the fact that this new hospital in London was created from scratch in less than two weeks,” – said the Executive Director of the British National health service (NHS) Simon Stevens, adding that medical workers and the military made “a few days what would normally take years.”
