In the isolation wards of Wuhan Children’s Hospital in central China’s Hubei Province, medical workers wearing similar protective suits are difficult to tell apart for the children infected with the COVID-19. (Compiled by Yang Fan)

Wang Jiaping, a nurse who likes drawing, came up with an idea that medical workers could draw cartoon characters on their protective suits and communicate with the children to help ease their fear and anxiety about the virus.

The medical workers choose popular cartoon characters such as Hello Kitty and Doraemon. This method works well.

The children call the nurses "Aunt Hello Kitty" and “Aunt Doraemon" , and name the doctors "Uncle Ultraman" and "Uncle rocket",positively cooperating with the medical treatment.
