The woman had stayed with her son for five days in an observation ward of a fever clinic before, waiting for a bed in the isolation ward.

The note read, “Son, hold on and stay strong. You should cooperate with the treatment. If the respirator is uncomfortable, bear it. I asked the doctor to give you 500 yuan ($72) and remember to ask people around to buy you necessities.”


This story shared by Lin Ming, a doctor at Wuhan Union Hospital, moved tens of thousands of netizens.
