Yuan Weifang (R), an experienced ICU nurse from Shanghai Seventh People's Hospital, tends a patient at Leishenshan (Thunder God Mountain) Hospital in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province, April 1, 2020. Yuan was one of the first medical workers who applied to aid the virus-hit Wuhan City upon the outbreak of COVID-19, although he was suffering from appendicitis and needed a surgery at that time. Finally, he was approved to leave for Wuhan after the second application as a member of the eighth batch of medical team from Shanghai to Hubei. Dispatched to the Leishenshan Hospital in Wuhan, Yuan had to battle the previously unknown virus head-on and spare no effort to instruct about 100 unexperienced ICU nurses as one of the team leaders in ICU wards at the hospital. Meanwhile, the busy work left Yuan no time to have a surgery, so he persisted with duty by taking antibiotics injections against the appendicitis. "Each discharge of the Covid-19 patient from the hospital will ease our working pressure and make us happy, because the fight against the virus is our duty and responsibility as a medic," remarked Yuan.
