Medics from east China's Jiangxi Province (in orange) wave goodbye to their coworkers from northwest China's Qinghai Province in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province, on March 17, 2020. They worked together on combatting the COVID-19 at the same temporary hospital here. The first batch of medics have been scheduled to depart Hubei, once the hard-hit province of the novel coronavirus, on Tuesday, as the epidemic situation has been greatly eased. The 3,675 medical staffers belonging to 41 medical teams from across China have assisted 14 temporary hospitals and seven designated hospitals in Wuhan, the provincial capital and epicenter of the outbreak.
