When the patient was discharged from the hospital, the medical staff performed a "thank you" dance.

After discharging the last patient, the medical staff tidied up the items and did the final disinfection.

After finishing the disinfection of the ward, the medical workers were so tired that they sat in the corridor and fell asleep.

The medical staff said it was the most comfortable position to fall asleep during this time.

"When this corridor gets quiet, Wuhan will start to be lively," they said. "This is what we want to see. This is a pretty emotional picture. It’s not reluctant to part, but a sense of achievement and happiness.”
