SARS Rumour Update: East Wing of Hebei Baoding No.252 Hospital is Guarded by Army and Police

I subtitled the video with English.

According to Apple Daily (1 & 2),

West Wing of Baoding No. 252 Hospital

East Wing of Baoding No. 252 Hospital

Even though Hebei government denied the outbreak of suspected SARS, Apple Daily reporters found that the east wing of No. 252 Hospital is blocked by army and police. 300 soldiers from team no. 38 are being quarantined. There are also soldiers being quarantined in Hebei Rongjun Hospital, which is also a PLA hospital. Mainland Chinese criticise the government for covering up the outbreak of the mysterious disease. It was said that Beijing is paying close attention to the incident.

Apple Daily reporters arrived in Baoding yesterday. The west wing of 252 hospital is open to the public. However, on Wusi Dong road, the east wing, which is next to the South of Hebei University, is guarded by mask-waring army and police. During the period of SARS in 2003, the same place also received and treated SARS patients. According to the hawkers nearby, a week ago, they saw several hundreds soldiers were sent to there for quarantine. It was said that two soldiers were dead

The east wing of No. 252 Hospital is used as the quarantine zone. The playground of Hebei University and the hospital is just divided by a wall. Yesterday, there were lots of students doing sports. Our reporter asked students there via phone if they knew about the outbreak in the hospital next wall and they said no. The west wing of the hospital is open to the public and there is no prevention notices. The old woman who sells with her vegetable and fruit cart right outside of the door of the east wing knows about the quarantine but she doesn’t care.
