Liu Lili, a nurse of Huashan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, has been working in ICU of Guanggu Branch of Wuhan Tongji Hospital since February 9. She has been in charge of severe patients treated with ECMO for over two months. She nurses patients with great care and gets affection from them. Considering the special condition of some patients, she helps them to move their bodies and trim their fingernails. 

It’s hot and stuffy to work in the isolation ward in thick protective suits for four hours. In one shift, medical workers can only rest for no more than 15 minutes. They use ice blocks to cool down. Liu and her colleagues are young people, some of them are post-90s. Their parents are concerned about them and wait for them to return home. When the epidemic is over, Liu wants to dress cool and see her favorite television star, like many young girls. But now, Liu said, she needs to shoulder the responsibility to save lives and make her own contribution.
