Liu Ping is a sanitation worker in Jianghan District of Wuhan, Hubei Province in central China. Since January 23, besides the routine cleaning of roads and trash disposal, she has also taken responsibility for disinfection work around the Union Hospital affiliated to the Tongji Medical College of Huazhong University of Science and Technology, together with another 9 colleagues.  

Following the outbreak of COVID-19, the district has placed greater importance to disinfection and sterilization of public areas. Although it has increased her workload, Liu is happy to put all her energy into disease prevention.   

“We disinfect the hospital four times a day, while the sprinklers cover some parts of the hospital premises,”the 39-year-old woman said.  

There are nearly 50,000 people performing such tasks in Wuhan every day, including Liu. 

Authorities in Wuhan are disinfecting urban areas in order to prevent the spread of the virus. Key places such as hospitals, markets, communities and public toilets, as well as their surrounding areas, will be disinfected in an appropriate way, adhering to the principle of targeted management, motivating the public and scientific standardization.
