Wang Peng checks if there is more medical waste to be disposed in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province, March 26, 2020. Wang Peng, 35, has been working for the Wuhan Hanshi Environmental Engineering Company for 9 years, where he is responsible for the disposal and incineration of medical waste. Protection against infection is a major challenge that Wang and his coworkers face, as they work 12-hour shifts to cope with the surging workload during the COVID-19 outbreak. "I like what I'm doing," Wang said, "I'm not only making money for my family, but also making a contribution to the society." Wang has not been home for over 2 months. The most relaxing moments for him is when he talks to his family through video chat. "I'll come home as soon as I defeat the disease," Wang said to his son. (Xinhua/Fei Maohua)
