Wuhan Children's Hospital is a facility designated to treat babies and children infected with the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, Hubei province. More than 50 medical employees have worked there for over two months and successfully treated 50 children with the disease, including a 17-day-old infant.
To reduce the children's anxiety, some medical workers painted cartoon characters on their protective clothing. Many nurses became the younger children's temporary parents-feeding them, changing their diapers and bathing them. Seven nurses also helped a dozen children ages 6 to 14 with their studies.
