Representatives of 2,801 medical staff from 21 medical teams from 14 provinces and cities across China built a "Thanksgiving Wood" on March 23 at a hospital in Wuhan, capital of central China’s Hubei province, which was previously the epicenter of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak.

Led by Li Lanjuan, an academician with the Chinese Academy of Engineering, medical representatives from 21 medical teams who assisted virus-hit Wuhan gathered in the eastern subdivision of Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University, and planted trees in the “Thanksgiving Wood” along with staff from the hospital.

Each tree was given a special name connected to the name of a province or city where the medical teams were from. Many medical workers took photos in front of the trees.

On the morning of Sept. 23, the eighth batch of medical teams from southwestern China’s Guizhou province donated all the relief materials it had brought from the province to Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University.

"Our hearts have always been on the battlefield, unswervingly supporting the efforts of the eastern subdivision of the hospital to fight against the epidemic," said Yang Hui, deputy director of the Guizhou provincial health commission and chief of the Guizhou medical teams aiding Hubei.

“We are grateful to people around the country, especially to the ‘angels in white’ across the country who came to help with our battle against the epidemic in Hubei, Wuhan and Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University,” said Wang Gaohua, president of Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University.

Wang added that the "Thanksgiving Wood" will be designated as a vital education base for staff and new employees of the hospital, who will receive “gratitude education” here every year in the future.
