Reunion on the first day of Lunar New Year
At 10 A.M. on the first day of the Lunar New Year, Wang Yong was having a dinner with his family at home in Shangluo, Shaanxi provience, located in the central west of China. For him, this is one of the few times of the year when he can reunite with his wife, children and senior people. This Lunar New Year, due to the “Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)” raging, there have been some confirmed cases in Wuhan. This touched the heart of the family, and the topic at the dinner table was more or less related to this. At this time, the sudden phone call broke the topic.
The first barrier for medical staff
Wang Yong is a service engineer in the Heal Force Biomeditech Holdings Group, mainly responsible for the company’s laboratory equipment installation and after-sales services. This is a work phone call from the company. During the call, he learned that a designated hospital in Xi’an was designated as a standby for the epidemic, and a biological safety cabinet was urgently needed.
Wang Yong told Dongfang.com, a vertical news reporter, that the biosafety cabinet provides protection for medical personnel after collecting blood samples of patients and conducting related experiments in it, which can be said to be “the first barrier for medical personnel.” Therefore, the first time he received the call, he realized the urgency and necessity of this work in today’s “extreme period”.
This time, he had to rush to the hospital again on the first day of the lunar new year. The family expressed dissatisfaction to some extent, but more often, they care about his safety in such “extraordinary times”. He was responsible for this matter: “I have done this job for a long time, and now it is in a very difficult time, and I want to solve the problem as quickly as possible. “
400 kilometers’ drive to the hospital
After deciding to set off, another problem immediately appeared. The distance from the mountainous hometown to the designated hospital in Xi’an was about 400 kilometers. Wang Yong contacted a friend, put on a medical mask, drive on the mountain road for an hour, and passed over two hours of high-speed road. Finally, he arrived at the designated hospital in Xi’an at 3 P.M..
After hours of installation and in-field test, the biosafety cabinet was successfully installed that night.
“I am a veteran and I am always ready”
Speaking of this experience, Wang Yong said: “This epidemic affects the hearts of people across the country. Our biosafety cabinet can help fight the epidemic. I just made a small contribution as an individual.” He also told reporters that he had two years of service experience in the Army Air Defense Forces, it should be responsible in extraordinary times: “I am a veteran, and I am always ready.” , Wang Yong seemed particularly proud.
“Our job is to be on call 24 hours a day to turn on the mobile phone to help customers deal with problems.” Wang Yong said. But even so, in such a special period, he rushed to the front line at the beginning of the Lunar New Year, and still received the understanding and support from his family.
Wang Yong told Dongfang.com.cn: “I was also thinking of ways to rush back to the Xi’an office on standby for the past two days, because there are more big hospitals and more demand. It is my job and responsibility.”
