  • A patient in Wuhan gives a thumbs up to the doctors and nurses who have been treating him on January 27

  • A doctor from the First Affiliated Hospital of the Xinjiang Medical University comforts his wife as he says goodbye to leave for Wuhan on January 28
  • A patient infected with the novel coronavirus expresses gratitude to medical staff at a makeshift hospital converted from an exhibition center in Wuhan on February 5

With the world's eye on the havoc caused by the novel coronavirus, there can never be too much space given to the ordinary men and women who have shown extraordinary courage and dedication to duty to keep life going for others. They range from people working in supermarkets and drugstores to security guards and transport workers who always turn up for work during the worst weather and crisis.

Doctors and other medical workers, who are at the forefront of the ongoing battle against the virus, have once again shown the exemplary mettle that has made China re-emerge from being one of the poorest nations in the world. They willingly gave up their Spring Festival holiday to rush back to work, many of them going to Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak.

The public has acknowledged the selflessness of the community. Programs paying tribute to them and showing solidarity with the people of Wuhan have gone viral on both traditional and new media platforms in China.
