              I send 'courier' in Wuhan | Battle epidemic story

              With a permanent population of more than 10 million, all the hustle and bustle is quiet in a short time.

              Wuhan stopped buses and subways at 10 am on January 23, except for a few emergency vehicles, private cars were later banned. Not only did traveling encounter difficulties, but the frontline medical staff's distribution of anti-epidemic materials was also eager.

              But there is such a group of ordinary people who, after getting permission to go on the road, start the engine and shuttle between the airport, the train station and the hospital.

              From the military games to the front line of the 'epidemic'

              'Wuhan, your 'cold' must get better soon!' This is the message when Yu Tao reposted the Wuhan New City promotional video in the circle of friends on February 3.

              As a native of Wuhan, no one wants this city to get better and better than him. Last year, the 7th World Military Games was held in Wuhan. Yu Tao did not hesitate to sign up as a volunteer for the marathon. 'I'm very happy to help.' In 2013, 19-year-old Yu Tao joined the army. Two years later, he moved from Urumqi to Wuhan to return to work at the China Construction Second Bureau.

              For this rapidly spreading epidemic, Yu intuitively told Yu Tao that there was always something to do, and that it was not too late. At the beginning, he did not deliver the epidemic prevention supplies. After the traffic control, how to get the medical staff to work became a difficult problem. On the night of the thirteenth year of the New Year, he learned that his friend was participating in the voluntary transfer of medical staff to work, and immediately called and asked the friend to pull himself into the group. However, within a few trips, the convoy received a notification. Because medical personnel directly contact the infected patients, there is a great possibility of cross infection. They will be transported by a more professional and safe escort team.

              Yu Tao's enthusiasm has not abated. When he learned that the donations that had flowed into Wuhan from all directions needed to be redistributed to hospitals, and that a limited number of volunteers were overloaded to do it, he moved again. Yu Tao first established a WeChat group of the Hanyang District team, and pulled in his comrade-in-arms Zhu Peng and several other friends. Real-name system of personnel, Yu Tao served as captain.

              On the second day of the new year, they received their first order and went to the Free Trade City to collect 3,000 pieces of isolation clothing shipped from Hubei Xiantao. From 15:00 to 5:30 pm, after completing the procedures of pickup, loading, writing the receipt, and then driving to the designated aid hospital to complete the unloading and other procedures, Yu Tao and his teammates completed the first mission and got a red Cross tags and numbers, and this is equivalent to a pass.

              Familiar with the shipping process, they ushered in a big order on the third day of the new year. A large batch of relief supplies arrived at the Free Trade City that night, and they were urgently needed to be transported to the urban area, including 3,000 sets of isolation clothing, 4,800 masks, and 300 cases of protective clothing. They were sent to 11 hospitals and nearly 60 private cars were required. At 11 o'clock in the evening, with the 13 cars of Yu Tao's team, a total of 70 cars arrived at the meeting place one after another.

              Yu Tao told the reporter of China Report that he has not counted how many orders have been taken and how many hospitals have been run. “There is no time to do this.” He only knows that the size of the fleet is still expanding. As of February 5, WeChat Group membership has increased to 44.

              But there is no one in the middle. Once he returned home from a mission, a player named 'Peach' said his mother was crying and he would not let him go out again. Tao sent a text message to Yu Tao: Sorry, you guys have to cheer. Yu Tao replied: 'Everyone understands ...'

              In the hardest hit area, have you never been afraid? Yu Tao told the 'China Report' reporter that he once sent a doctor to the hospital and learned from the chat that the doctor's father had just been diagnosed. 'Although there are protective measures, I was too close to her. I thought to myself It ’s delivered as soon as possible, go home and get rid of the poison, and wash it. ”Yu Tao said, it ’s really scary to think about it now, but if their modest power can bring the city back to life as soon as possible, nothing is worth it .

              'Wuhan is our own city and should come forward'

              Zhu Peng is a comrade in arms of Yu Tao. Born in 1994, Yu Tao started to build this volunteer team with him. 'Being in the army for two years has not contributed much to the country. Wuhan is our own city and we should come forward.'

              However, for the first time, Zhu Peng took the lead. 'I said there was something going out, but when I saw that so many people were sick when I was transporting supplies to the hospital, I thought it was better to say to my family.' Although Zhu Peng's father didn't say clearly whether he agreed or not, he always supported silently. Holding son. 'He specially prepared an antiviral oral solution. Every time I go out, he will force me to drink. It may not be clear how useful it is, so I feel at ease.' Zhu Peng said.

              The delivery of materials was methodical, and one of the tasks that impressed him the most was the early morning of the fourth day of the new year. The team received a notice to send 15 boxes of protective clothing (50 sets per box) from Shenzhen to Wuhan Third Hospital. In Optics Valley, Zhu Peng immediately arranged delivery.

              After being identified as the designated hospital on January 20, the Guanggu Hospital District became apparently understaffed. Zhu Peng and Yu Tao could not bear to increase their workload, so they helped move protective clothing to the hospital's warehouse. As they passed by an office, they suddenly saw eight medical staff wearing protective clothing lying side by side on the floor and falling asleep. Yu Tao couldn't help but took out his mobile phone and took the picture below.

              'After seeing this scene, my heart touched especially, the medical staff did not know how many times harder than us.' Zhu Peng muttered in his heart and moved some more supplies himself, these angels in white can be a little safer.

              Although there are no statistics on how many single tasks have been received, the amount of aid materials has been neatly recorded by them: as of February 11, Zhu Peng's convoy sent a total of 3,000 isolation services to dozens of hospitals, 630 Box of protective clothing, 310,000 masks, 80 boxes of down jackets, 2000 boxes of biscuits, 1,000 boxes of instant noodles, 1300 liters of disinfection water, 500 kg of alcohol.

              'Do you want a female player? I can!'

              Zhao Jingrong, 37, is one of the few female members of the volunteer team in Hankou District. Both Yu Tao and Zhu Peng called her 'Sister Rong'. After finishing college in Wuhan, Zhao Jingrong has lived here all the time. He has an 8-year-old son who is already 'half a Wuhan person'.

              Since joining the volunteer team, Zhao Jingrong has shown full courage and focus. 'First of all, you must have a good mentality, otherwise you ca n’t do it well. If you are too scared to leave the door, let alone send materials to places where patients gather like hospitals.' Zhao Jingrong joked: 'Because I am For sales, the affordability is stronger than the average person. 'During the execution of the task, if the husband did not have time to control the child, Zhao Jingrong sent the child to a relative in the neighbouring community.

              Although they are one round older than most players, they still communicate very well. 'There is no time to chat. I just want to get the supplies to the people who need them as soon as possible.' Zhao Jingrong's car is a family car, which can hold up to six large boxes of protective supplies. Every time she goes out of the mission, she and her team members will send three Delivery to five institutions.

              Zhao Jingrong's biggest move was on the fourth day of the new year. She received the task of sending three boxes of protective clothing to Wuhan Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine Hospital. At about 10pm, the doctor in charge of the connection did not meet the appointment time. Zhao Jingrong later learned that the doctor had not taken a bath for several days because he was busy with his work. He took time to take a bath before arriving late.

              Now every time he goes on a mission, his son will tell Zhao Jingrong sensibly to protect himself. If there is always a need to transport supplies, she will continue to do so. 'I hope that our city can return to normal as soon as possible and that people can work and live normally. When bad things happen, we can stay healthy together.'

                Xinhua News Agency, Jinan, February 16th, Title: 'Rehabilitation of patients has given us a great sense of honor'-a doctor's story in Dabieshan Regional Medical Center

                Xinhua News Agency reporters Yang Wen and Sun Xiaohui

                'You can't be here.' At the Dabieshan Regional Medical Center in Huanggang City, Hubei Province, a critically ill patient slowly stabilized after being treated, and suddenly told Yue Maokui, deputy chief physician of the Department of Critical Care Medicine.

                'Why?' Yue Maokui asked him, 'I'm an infectious disease and it's terrible!' I heard the patient's heart-warming answer. Everyone in the ICU ward, which had just been built, was very hot.

                On January 29, Yue Maokui returned to the hotel after work and recorded the first 'chat' with the patient: 'I was very touched when I heard the patient. We all know that this is an infectious disease, but since we chose Coming retrograde at this time, I have already set aside this for a long time, and since the moment when each of us stepped into the temple of medicine, we have long been ready! '

                Yue Maokui is from the Department of Critical Care Medicine, Second Affiliated Hospital of Shandong First Medical University. At 3 am on January 26, the aid medical team of Tai'an City, Shandong Province arrived in Huanggang. After the Dabieshan Regional Medical Center was officially opened on the 28th, patients were continuously sent for treatment, and Yue Maokui and colleagues also kept on treating patients. After leaving work, Yue Maokui will record how to race against death these days, and describe her work as 'dancing on the blade'.

                'Doctor Yue, this patient is pneumothorax!' Yue Maokui hurried to hear the voice of a colleague. For patients with severe neo-coronary pneumonia, pneumothorax is a more common serious complication. This is the medical team's first tracheal intubation patient. The body temperature improved a few days ago, and suddenly the patient was short of breath. In a hurry, Yue Maokui used the existing set of central venous catheters for drainage. After the puncture, Yue Maokui breathed a sigh of relief when he saw a large amount of gas overflowing from the water-sealed bottle.

                'Dr. Yue, blood oxygen is falling!' Suddenly, the oxygen saturation on the monitor continued to drop: 80%, 70%, 60% ... The inhaler frequently alarmed, the patient was short of breath, and Yue Maokui had a cold sweat. .

                'Increase the amount of sedative drugs and increase the pressure of the lungs!' 1 minute, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, the blood oxygen saturation of the monitor finally gradually increased. For half an hour, the patient's blood oxygen saturation rose to more than 90%, and the tidal volume exceeded 400ml.

                Yue Maokui described in a later diary: 'This half hour has been as long as half a century! When I finally sat down and took a breath, I felt sour and sweat soaked my back ...'

                Healer's Story at Dabieshan Regional Medical Center

                Yue Maokui said that this is actually an ordinary treatment, but whether it is puncture drainage or adjustment of the ventilator, it is many times more difficult than usual. 'Protective clothing, three-layer masks, limited field of vision, and occasional suffocation, sometimes difficult to put in normal posture, coupled with the patient's cardiopulmonary function is quickly compensating to the limit, a slight wind and grass movement will have serious consequences, so I said Any operation is a great test for medical staff. '

                There are many more examples like this. In the relatively simple conditions of the ward, the comrades-in-arms are like 'dances on the blade', relying on their many years of clinical experience and meticulous observation of patients, step by step to improve the condition.

                'Some patients were evacuated from the ventilator, and some patients were transferred to the general ward. The patients who came back from the death line waved with us and said thank you. This gave us a great sense of honor and happiness, which kept us cold. In winter, I feel the hope and warmth of spring. 'Yue Maokui said.

                Although they come from different places, the medical staff at the medical center support each other and work without complaint: work methodically and meticulously treat the operation, only the indentation left by the goggles on the face and the red eyes after alcohol disinfection With their hard work and tenacity ...

                'Every New Year's Day, Huangzhou is heavy at night. Siming in his hometown, he is also a retrograde. It is difficult for him to go to the country today. Why not be there. When he returns, the flowers will bloom in spring.' On the evening of the Lantern Festival, Yue Maokui wrote.

                  Blood donation and rescue by 20 new medical staff of New Crown Pneumonia in Wuhan

                  Wu Fen spent three years in administrative work at the Chinese Medicine Hospital of Jiangxia District, Wuhan (hereinafter referred to as 'Chinese Medicine Hospital'), and she did not expect that one day she would be able to participate in the rescue of the wounded in this way-as a recoverer of new crown pneumonia, she donated The plasma may be used to treat patients with severe neo-coronary pneumonia.

                  On February 5, next to the office building of the fever ward of the Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital, a special 'rescue' was under way. A total of 2600 ml of plasma was collected from 8 plasma bags. Wu Fen, who donated 300 milliliters of plasma, called herself a special fighter against new crown pneumonia from this day, number 'XG0002', which is the number of her plasma bag.

                  As a halo, Wu Fen, 30, had two failed blood donations, but this time she succeeded. A separator removes her blood and separates it, and then puts red blood cells back into the body. 'It depends entirely on my mind. If I faint halfway, I will cry again, and I will blame myself. I hate myself for being useless.' Like most patients with New Coronary Pneumonia and cured people, Wu Fen's taste and smell have not been fully restored, but in order to overcome He was dizzy and he forced herself to eat a lot of food before coming. It was also from the day the blood was donated that Wu Fen's face gradually began to smile.

                  Up to now, a total of 19 recovered medical staff in the hospital have participated in the donation of plasma, totaling 6,600 ml. After testing for biosafety and antibody titers, the blood plasma can be used for clinical treatment of 3000 ml.

                  According to the Xinhua News Agency, at present, there are already 20 medical doctors and nurses who have recovered from new crown pneumonia in Wuhan donating plasma for treating patients, and 12 severe patients have received plasma treatment.

                  'I didn't expect her to come.' On the day of donating plasma, Wu Fen saw many familiar people, including a head nurse. 'Her symptoms are among the worst among us, with continuous high fever, depressed mood, and the worst I wrote my testament. '

                  On January 17, Wu Fen cried as soon as she saw the CT results. Yuan Li, a 27-year-old nurse at the Chinese Medicine Hospital, also got his own CT results on this day, and his lungs had shadows. After that, the hospital gave each medical staff a CT examination. 'Although some medical staff were asymptomatic at that time, the lungs showed inflammation, and gradually they developed symptoms later.' Yuan Li said.

                  Doctor Qin Wei (pseudonym) of the hospital said that his film at that time showed that the condition was very serious, but the symptoms were mild, and it began to aggravate after two or three days. 'It was only later that I reacted. On the 13th day before the collective examination, I experienced chills, Soreness is the symptom. '

                  Recalling the source of the infection, Yuan Li suspected a patient contacted in the previous department. 'His CT showed a large area of ​​infection in the lungs.' Wu Fen also wondered how she was infected. She was an administrative staff member of the hospital. There were three medical staff members in her family. 'Except for my 5-year-old son, all seven others were infected.'

                  'Even if we wanted to do a good job of protection at that time, there were not enough supplies.' Qin Wei said that until now, the supplies of the hospital were still in short supply. 'Colleagues went into battle almost all the time, without rest all day, and some personnel have already supported the cabin. hospital'.

                  'Becoming a patient, I feel the hard work of medical care is not easy.' Yuan Li watched as the hospital changed to a hot clinic, treating a large number of patients with mild cases, and he and his infected colleagues lived in the same quarantine ward. In order to reduce the workload of his colleagues, Yuan Li and his infected colleagues in the same ward learned medical procedures such as nebulization to treat himself. Wu Fen learned to roll the infusion tube and change her own medicine.

                  After nearly 20 days of hospitalization, Wu Fen, who said he was timid and crying, always thought about two patients with severe neo-pneumococcal pneumonia. 'One patient was so severe that he coughed his heart and couldn't breathe when he was hit; A patient had a cardiac arrest, and medical staff gave her cardiopulmonary compressions overnight. '

                  When he was discharged on February 3, Wu Fen did not feel relaxed, but was 'sad and weak', which was a time when the epidemic situation in the country was relatively serious.

                  The opportunity for 'saving people' she awaited soon came. On February 4th, she saw that the director of the TCM hospital shared the plasma donation initiative in the WeChat group, and she and Yuan Li 'reported quickly.' The initiative wrote that the plasma of cured patients with neo-coronary pneumonia may contain antibodies that can be saved by injecting them into the blood of severely ill patients.

                  Yuan Li said that most of the medical staff recovering in Qunli reported their names, but those who were able to participate in the donation were those who recovered in good physical condition and had no underlying diseases. She almost 'signed up without thinking'.

                  In fact, before the first batch of patients with new coronary pneumonia cures donated plasma, neither the proponents nor the donors were confident. Zhang Dingyu, the director of Wuhan Jinyintan Hospital, also said in an interview earlier that in the absence of specific drugs and vaccines, the recovery period of plasma therapy is still valuable, but clinical use must have strict conditions, and various risks need to be vigilant. In addition, due to the scarcity of plasma, the therapy is limited to some critically ill patients and is difficult to apply on a large scale.

                  Liu Bende, the leader of the Jiangxia District New Crown Pneumonia Expert Team who initiated the donation initiative to several hospitals in Jiangxia District, previously introduced in an interview that the 6,600 ml of plasma donated by the 19 New Crown Pneumonia cure medical staff of the Chinese Medicine Hospital was sent to Wuhan Biological The Institute and the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 'after testing for biosafety, antibody titers, etc., found that 3,000 ml can be used for clinical purposes.'

                  According to the official Weibo news from the News Center of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, Yang Xiaoming, chairman of Sinopharm China Biological, introduced at a press conference held on February 14. Generally, about 400 ml of plasma was collected from recoverers, and an average of one recoverer's plasma can be treated 2 ~ In 3 critically ill patients, it took 7 days from the time of plasma collection to the clinician's use.

                  Wu Fen, who has not completely recovered her appetite, recently dialed the donation phone again. She and her husband who were discharged from the hospital will donate blood plasma together on February 19th. At that time, she will also end the quarantine. Fight side by side, save more people. ' Qin Wei also asked the hospital for a job offer, and he felt distressed that some front-line young colleagues had not rested. 'I never thought about whether I should get a job. This is not a problem. I need to get a job after isolation.'

                    CCTV News: In the fight against the epidemic, some front-line medical staff were accidentally infected. Zhao Zhigang, from the Emergency Center of Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University, was also infected with new coronary pneumonia. He was still in isolation and insisted on online consultation after his fever improved slightly after fever.

                    Zhao Zhigang, 40, is the deputy chief physician of the Emergency Center of Central South Hospital. On January 22, he was diagnosed with pneumonia due to a new coronavirus infection. Because it is mild and the hospital ward is very tight. After prescribing the medicine, he asked to go home for isolation and treatment.

                    'I can't go out, I can see people online.' On January 28, Zhao Zhigang started to provide online consultation services for fever patients through a small program of online consultation by the hospital official Wei.

                      Since January 15, Sun Peng has never been home.

                      'Watch more, one is one'

                      Sun Peng is 43 years old and is the deputy director of the Emergency Department of Union Hospital of Tongji Medical College of Huazhong University of Science and Technology. In March 2019, he was assigned to the West Section of Wuhan Union Medical College Hospital in Wuhan Economic and Technological Development Zone, where he was responsible for emergency department and fever clinic.

                      After the outbreak, Sun Peng was on call 24 hours a day.

                      On January 24, the day of New Year's Eve, Sun Peng was busy until 8 pm and returned to the house rented near the hospital.

                      'I cooked some dumplings for the New Year.' On the evening of February 13, Sun Peng said in an interview with a reporter from Hubei Daily.

                      Immediately after eating, Sun Peng received a phone call from the night doctor saying that one patient had respiratory failure. He rushed to the hospital immediately, and the medical staff was taking turns to do chest compressions for the patients.

                      'Although wearing protective clothing, such close-range rescues will increase the chance of infection for medical staff. This kind of psychological pressure is common to everyone, but no one flinches.'

                      It was more than one o'clock in the morning after work, and Sun Peng was too tired to take off his protective clothing.

                      There were only 20 observation beds in the observation area where the West Hospital issued a hot consultation. At its peak, 30 patients were crowded out. As long as there is an oxygen cylinder, Sun Peng and colleagues will keep the patient as much as possible.

                      'This is the patient's life expectancy. We can only try our best to watch one more.'

                      On January 25, the West Hospital received a notice and was requisitioned as one of the third designated hospitals in Wuhan to treat patients with new coronary pneumonia, opening more than 800 beds in succession.

                      During the epidemic, as long as the patients wanted to call, Sun Peng would not hesitate to give the other party, and also used the rest time to help some mild patients to watch the videos, analyze the test results, and guide them to take the medicine correctly.

                      'At this time, strange phone calls are mostly for patients seeking help. Even if I just say a few words of comfort, I can give them great encouragement and relieve their psychological pressure.'

                      The epidemic happened, and medical staff were racing against time.

                      'It is very troublesome to put on and take off protective clothing. After wearing it, we can't eat, drink or go to the toilet for five or six hours. In such a severe epidemic, we save one minute and give the patient one minute more.' Sun Peng said.

                      In addition to the basic screening and treatment work, the medical staff who sent out the fever clinics have to patiently answer a large number of consultation calls every day, soothing patients and their family members anxiously waiting to see a doctor, maintaining an orderly consultation, and everyone's throat is dumb all day.

                      Everyone is exhausted by the continuous high-intensity work, but so far no medical staff in the department has proposed rest. On the contrary, when some colleagues are uncomfortable, they are unwilling to take a break. Saying that one person has less fighting power will make other colleagues more tired.

                      'During this period of time, I kept mentioning my heart. The most worrying thing was my colleague's recruitment. We must ensure that the team does not experience combat downsizing.' The first thing to do at work every day is to remind everyone to urge each other to check the isolation suit and mask , Hats and gloves are in place.

                      Half a month ago, more than a dozen medical staff in the department had performed relevant tests and all showed negative results.

                      Sun Peng said that the medical staff who sent out fever clinics had to fight protracted battles, and they should not be taken lightly.

                      The epidemic situation is severe, and the departments of the Western Hospital have successively supported medical staff to send out fever clinics.

                      'There are now more than 100 colleagues standing side by side with me. Although tired, I feel very warm.' Sun Peng said.

                      On January 29, 29 party members were sent out to set up temporary party branches, and 14 medical staff successively submitted applications for party membership.

                      'Everyone is touched. There is a kind of ideological consciousness from the heart. Joining the party organization is also to motivate ourselves. Everyone said in the group that they must work together to spend the hardest days.' Sun Peng, who has a 19-year party age Say.

                      'No winter is insurmountable'

                      The fever clinic is a special clinic that came into being during the SARS period in 2003. It is set up under the emergency department and requires medical staff on duty 24 hours. When there is an infectious disease epidemic, no matter whether the patient has fever or not, an accurate diagnosis must be made for each patient.

                      Sun Peng remembers very clearly. On April 18, 2003, the hospital immediately received a notice to form a hot clinic. Sun Peng, who had been in work for more than a year, was the first to be sent to the hot clinic by the director of the emergency department.

                      At the time of SARS, Sun Peng was a bachelor. Today, he has a happy and happy family. His daughter Sun Wanqing is 14 years old, she is well-behaved, her grades are excellent, and her wife Zhang Qing is a doctor in the Department of Anesthesiology at Xiehe Hospital. She is also on call 24 hours a day. Her daughter sometimes has to stay at home alone.

                      On January 25, the first day of the new year, her daughter wrote a letter to Sun Peng to take pictures of him, using classical Chinese. 'The flu burst, pneumonia was imminent, and I wanted my father to be healthy ...' The daughter expressed her miss, concern, and worry in his letter.

                      'I didn't feel that I was together every day, and sometimes I felt that the tutoring assignment was troublesome. I saw this letter and felt that the child grew up in an instant. How precious is the ordinary life, and it is also happy to be able to tutor the assignment.' Sun Peng laughed. He said he was a bit 'tearing.'

                      The phrase 'No winter is insurmountable' made him think again and again, 'How good she is, every time we cure a patient, we let a family 'overtake' a winter.'

                      Sun Peng told her daughter that she did a very meaningful thing. This letter not only encouraged medical staff such as dad, but also inspired every ordinary person in the epidemic, so that everyone can take it with them in the most difficult times. Hope forward.
