Wuhan, the capital city of Central China’s Hubei Province, has gained worldwide attention as the epicenter of the novel coronavirus outbreak. There are mounting efforts from all sectors to maintain the health and safety of local citizens in Wuhan. Some of the international community has neglected the fact that Wuhan is a city tortured by this epidemic. Some Western media insist on using the phrase “Wuhan virus” to report on the outbreak. It should be stressed that Wuhan is not a virus, and the city and its citizens are victims of the epidemic.
In the battle against the novel coronavirus, medical staff from all over the country volunteered to come to Hubei to fill the shortage of personnel. In the meantime, various make-shift hospitals including Huoshenshan, Leishenshan and 11 more temporary hospitals are being built to cope with the surging number of infected patients.
2020 witnessed countless teary-eyed faces, as people waved goodbye to their families as they left their homes to join in the fight. But they are never alone and Wuhan will never surrender. As people from all over the world expressed their support and determination to stand with Wuhan, Wuhan will never be an isolated island. Watch the following video and join in our campaign on social media with the tag #standwithwuhan.
