A Wuhan resident, who called herself “McDull’s Mum” on the Internet, was diagnosed with a coronavirus infection and was transferred on February 13 to a makeshift hospital for treatment.

The hospital, designed to treat patients with mild symptoms, is patients’ second home during the epidemic. Through photos shared by “McDull’s Mum”, we learn that patients’ everyday needs are given full consideration. 

Perhaps because their symptoms are less severe, people have relatively good morale. They think of ways to entertain themselves, like practicing calligraphy, knitting, and dancing.

The medical staff, like the hospital itself, was put together quickly. It is comprised of three medical teams from elsewhere in China who received emergency calls and rushed to Wuhan to help their local counterparts.

The help goes two ways, said the medical staff. They spare no effort to take care of the ill, and Wuhan people respond with reciprocal support. 

“We hope We stand together to overcome the epidemic and return home soon,” said a doctor.
