With the Wuhan virus consuming more lives by the day, medical practitioners in China have been working in overdrive to ensure these infected patients receive the treatment they need. These dedicated real-life heroes never give up on their jobs. Even if it means risking their lives…more than once.
A 38-year-old nurse by the name of Guo Qin who made a miraculously recovery from the deadly virus immediately went back to treat infected patients at a hospital in Wuhan on Tuesday (28th January).
Following reports from Astro Awani, the nurse tested positive for the Wuhan virus in early January when she was assigned to treat an infected patient in Zhongnan Hospital.
Qin was quarantined and underwent treatment for her condition over a period of 20 days. But the minute she discovered that she was healed, her first instinct told her to go back to the hospital and help out the other patients.
Even the nurses on duty said Qin didn’t need long breaks in between treating patients. When asked why she rushed back to attend to her duties, the selfless nurse said:
“I was told the head nurse had worked for 48 hours without stopping in one shift, and she always works overtime. I was so worried when I heard about this that it made me want to get better as soon as possible so I could get back to work and help out.”
With Qin back on duty, the hospital now has 80 medical practitioners on duty. But despite the ample manpower, none of them even want to take a day off in this crucial period of time!
“Everybody, even the head nurse, told me to rest. But we’re all dedicated to out jobs, especially now when medical staff are desperately needed,” said the hardworking medical worker.
“We don’t even think about taking breaks”, she added.
As of now, 132 people have died from the viral outbreak, with over 6,000 reported cases to date. Hopefully, the sacrifices of these dedicated doctors don’t go to waste.
Let’s not forget to thank these hardworking real-life heroes for their commitment to saving lives daily!
