A card read "1.4 billion compatriots will always remember the fallen heroes" is sent to mourn the heroes who died in the fight against the COVID-19 on April 4, the Tomb Sweeping Day in China. Zhu Heng, a girl who chose to be a volunteer amid the epidemic, sent sympathy flowers, with the names of martyrs written in a card, to the Central Hospital of Wuhan to mourn the heroes who fell fighting COVID-19. Martyrs such as Li Wenliang, Jiang Xueqing and Mei Zhongming sacrificed their lives for the sake of pandemic prevention and control.

Zhu Heng sends chrysanthemum flowers to express condolences to martyrs fighting against the pandemi on April 4. Zhu is a postgraduate student and she came back to Wuhan, her hometown, to spend the Spring festival. In early February, as the epidemic was spreading, she applied to be a volunteer.

Zhu thought only by standing up together can all the people be protected. She started her work as a volunteer on March 1. This photo shows her at 10 am on Saturday mourning the deceased.
