Yang Yu, a post-70s policewoman at the Wuhan Economic and Technological Development Zone, central China’s Hubei province, has joined hands with three post-90s nurses to help a special patient during this pneumonia outbreak.

On March 4, Yang received a call from Duan Haiping, a medical worker on the front line of the war against the epidemic. Duan wanted Yang to find help for her 92-year-old father, who suffers from benign prostatic hyperplasia and had difficulty getting his ureter changed in hospitals as a result of the outbreak.

Yang immediately contacted the Union Hospital of Tongji Medical College of the Huazhong University of Science and Technology. Learning about this, Bai Pengpeng, Zhu Ruisong and Tang Jianbin, all nurses at the hospital, volunteered to change his ureter at his house together with Yang. Before leaving the house, the four of them refused the money offered by the family.

This special out-call has brought Yang and the three male nurses closer in the fight against the pneumonia. While Yang appreciates the efforts the young nurses have made amid the epidemic and even donated some fast food to the hospital as a gesture of gratitude, the three nurses also expressed admiration for Yang, who has been busy doing her part to combat the virus.

“I feel like that they have become family, and we all have the same goal to try our best amid the epidemic,” said Yang. The police-nurse team provided services for the old man once again on March 12 for free.
