I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment, but never with a view to injury and wrong-doing. Into whatsoever houses I enter, I will enter to help the sick.

January 19, 2019 is a day that 32-year-old Zhang Changsheng will remember for the rest of his life. On that day, the hospital where he worked confirmed that he and 13 of his colleagues had been infected with COVID-19. Their suffering would prove to the world that this unknown virus could be transmitted between humans.

Seventeen days after fully recovering from the disease, Zhang volunteered to go back to the frontline to help fight it. Armed with an optimistic attitude, he shared his experience with those who lived in fear of the lethal virus.

“My experience of having COVID-19 will be more convincing to our patients. I hope they can stay in good spirits and listen to the doctors’s instructions, because the disease is not that terrible,” said Zhang.

On his social media, Zhang posted some simple put powerful words to inspire his patients and friends: “Every winter will come to an end, and once it does, I hope all will enjoy the spring blossom and stay healthy.”
