Are their building codes not sufficient for fire safety or is their so much corruption that they don't matter?

Will anyone lose their construction company and go to jail over this?

40 days isn't enough to check thousands of buildings. It just isn't.

Building codes for fire safety are always a moving target, but this knowledge is widely shared worldwide. Too bad the Chinese govt hasn't hacked into Europe's or America's fire code safety regulations for a head start?

Think of it this way. You have a country with well over 1.7billion people. As sick as it sounds, I believe that the CCP doesn't mind cutting back their population using any means necessary. See how many accidents happen based off of neglected safety measures. If it's an "accident" or "natural disaster" the government can't be blamed... much.

Interesting description. It may be accurate, but I suspect it's not the name they give themselves.
