A South African company is ready to build a 350-bed temporary hospital in just 12 days!


KwaZulu Natal, South Africa (26 March 2020) – Many hospitals globally are confronted with an increasing number of infected corona (COVID-19) patients in the last few weeks and months. The number of newly infected patients is increasing daily, and the virus is now a very real threat within South Africa.

The question has already been asked whether hospitals can cope with the number of infected patients who potentially could be admitted in the next few days or weeks, as there is limited space for patients to be accommodated comfortably. Many customers are resorting to container solutions as an interim measure. Containers offer the advantage of a fast, modular and isolated solution. However, many do not realise that there are also temporary structures and tents on the market that combine the advantages of containers with reusability.

Temporary structures can be purchased or rented complete with interior fittings such as room layouts, heating and sanitary systems and are available in all widths and lengths. Containers are a fixed size and usable only for a single purpose, whereas demountable temporary structures offer a wide range of possible applications.

And one South African company is ready to build a 350-bed temporary hospital in just 12 days!

“We have designed and developed a 350-bed temporary treatment facility that we can have built in 10 to 12 days.”

Extreme Events – a company based in KwaZulu-Natal –  put a call out to the President to let him and the government know that they are on stand by should the facility need to be built.

“We are ready to stand by you and your departments during this time. We have all our planning in place to provide you with temporary hospital/medical facilities to cater for large numbers of patients when and if the need arises.”

Check out some of their ideas below:
