CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Cui Yong and Huang Xia who are in charge of the severe pneumonia emergency ward at Chongqing Three Gorges Central Hospital have been working together for nearly a decade.

At 9 PM on January 21, 2020, Cui Yong who is the Director of the Intensive Care Dept. of the Emergency Branch of Chongqing Three Gorges Central Hospital and was undergoing a consultation in Yunyang County, received a phone call from the President who asked him to return to the hospital to deal with the epidemic. Subsequently, Cui Yong led the team to complete the evacuation care of the patients in the original ward within 36 hours, the renovation and decoration of the quarantine ward, the standard setting of the fever clinic, and the deployment of medical staff. Cui Yong and his colleagues spent 36 hours on transforming a centralized hospital.
Huang Xia who is the Deputy Director of the Intensive Care Dept. of the Emergency Branch of Chongqing Three Gorges Central Hospital has been in the fight against the novel coronavirus outbreak for 15 days. On January 22, 2020, after completing her work, Huang Xia entered the core area of the severe pneumonia ward.
She said that “I am specialized in dealing with severe patients all the year round, so I must get involved in this 'epidemic' war, because this is my mission.” Before entering the intensive quarantine ward, everyone should make comprehensive protection. She remembered that for the longest time during the 15 days, she spent more than 30 hours successively with protective materials.
Due to the shortage of protective materials, in principle every shift shall not get out of the ward so as to reduce the cost of protective materials. For close protection, Cui Yong and Huang Xia would check each other's equipment. They wore washing clothes, isolation clothes and protective clothes layer after layer and three gloves. Every time they came out of the quarantine ward, their underwear would be wet.
