A medical staff member took this photo during a break at 4 am on Tuesday in Wuhan Third Hospital. The signs say, "We will fight together to overcome the virus, protect lives and our own city," "Go Wuhan!" and similar encouraging words.

The hospitals called on Chinese locals as well as nationals living overseas to donate money and supplies to help contain the pneumonia outbreak, especially medical supplies and protective items, including face masks, protective caps, suits, goggles and disposable latex gloves.
