This is not an empty city, because we are here!
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Under the circumstance of epidemic, Chongqing is a little different than before. Our city seems to be “asleep”.There is no traffic jam on Caiyuanba Bridge at 8:00 a.m; Hongyadong and Ciqikou at 12:00 a.m. seem to be paused; In the empty subway cars, we can hear broadcast only.
We have never seen such quite cases in Chongqing.
But what we see is not an “empty city”! It is Chongqing citizens’ greatest love and protection for the city.
It’s stick to the post. "As long as everyone is safe, everything is worthy."
Ran Bo, the member of Team 5, Chongqing Traffic Enforcement Highway Detachment 4
Since the outbreak of the epidemic, the team is stick to their post at the frontline. After working for 18 hours continuously, Ran Bo was so tired that he fell asleep on the ground. However, he said: “As long as everyone is safe, everything is worthy”.
At the place where you can't see, someone is always fighting for you. Even they fell down, they are still carrying a heart to protect you.
It’s selflessness. “I am a veteran, so I am obliged to be a pioneer for epidemic control.”
Yan Hong, driver of Route T2 - T3
He was a soldier of the country for one day, so he is a soldier of the country for the rest of his life. He is a bus driver and a veteran, so he volunteered for the task of transporting Wuhan passengers to a designated hotel for quarantine observation.
Epidemic situation does not disappear, and their responsibility will remain! Although they have left the battlefield, but their army spirit have not disappeared! If there is a war, they can be called back!
It’s respect. “You protect our city, then let us protect you.”
On January 30, 2020, a woman sent four boxes of masks to policemen and left away after leaving a message that “we are together. Come on.”
In this war without gunpowder, countless workers are fighting on the front line of epidemic control. Thank you! You protect our city, then let us protect you.
It’s appreciation. “We send vegetables to you as much as possible, and hope you enjoy.”
Villagers of Dengtai Village, Longju Town sending vegetables to Chongqing Three Gorges Central Hospital
Villagers of Dengtai Village, Longju Town sent 1800kg vegetables including radish and oyster mushroom to Chongqing Three Gorges Central Hospital. They said that “you help us setting up the vegetable greenhouse for poverty alleviation, now we send vegetables to you as much as possible, and hope you enjoy.”
They used simple words to express their sincere feelings. To fight against the epidemic, we work together! Thank you, everyone.
It’s support. “As long as they can make contribution to epidemic prevention and control, they have no compliant.”
Employees of Chongqing Baina Medical Device Co., Ltd. producing masks
A group of Chongqing people started working on New Year’s Eve, and running at full capacity as the production line, because they just hoped to solve the shortage problem of medical supplies as soon as possible, even if they have been working overtime for more than 10 days...
They are not doctor, but they want to save people as well.
It’s responsibility. “I sign up voluntarily, and I don't require pay, regardless of life or death.”
A medical worker of Chongqing municipal medical team for fighting against the epidemic in Hubei
Up to now, Chongqing municipal medical team has sent more than 300 people to Hubei to fight against the epidemic.
No matter how dangerous it is, there is always a group of people, regardless of pay, life and death, standing on the first line of the epidemic.
Maybe we don't know who they are, but we know who they fight for.
It’s understanding. “Your greatest support for the epidemic is to stay at home and not to make trouble.”
Lyu Qian and her families
Fengjie resident Lyv Qian and her families stayed at home for fighting against the epidemic as required by the government. They held a competition in the family group, and the winners donated their prize money to charity.
Wearing a mask has become a "standard" for someone to go out. The empty city means the most thorough understanding and support for fighters in the first line.
Look, the closer the danger gets to us, the closer we get together!
Someone once said that why do you love your home after suffering from so much?
Because except for such sufferings, there are many “unknown heroes” fighting in “battlefield” without gunpowder.
Because there are also many common people safeguarding our city and taking us out of gloomy mood with love and hope.
They prove by their actions that they are here! This is not an empty city, because we are united as one!
Chongqing is filled with responsibility, appreciation, warm, support and love. Winter has gone, and spring is coming, so Chongqing people are busy to usher in a new spring.
Chongqing, come on! I’m here, Chongqing!
