CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- From August 25 to September 8, “Love in Yuzhong” – 2020 Yuzhong District COVID-19 Epidemic Prevention and Control Theme Exhibition was held in Wang Qi Art Museum. The exhibition displayed the volunteer applications and Communist Party applications of frontline epidemic fighters, call lists with hundreds of meters long made by community workers during the epidemic, children’s epidemic-themed paintings, postcards sent by Xiaogan citizens to Chongqing medical teams supporting Hubei, etc. Every piece of the exhibit is stunning.
Volunteer applications and Communist Party applications of people fighting against epidemic in the frontline
The epidemic theme exhibition had a total of four exhibition areas, respectively four thematic sections “All for the People,” “Do Our Best for You,” “Fighting against COVID-19 Together,” “Every Cloud Has a Silver Shining”.
In the exhibition hall, the first thing that struck the eyes was a photo wall. The wall was decorated with more than 700 photos selected from more than 30,000 photos with great visual impact, covering the fighting process against the epidemic and achievements in all walks of life.
A telephone was set up in the center of the exhibition hall. A list of calls made by community workers during the epidemic hung from the roof to the ground. This list, which was several hundred meters long, showed the exact time of the call and the person called, and basically there was a call every five minutes or less. This tedious and meticulous work was not only a record of the hardships of these individuals, but also a unique memory of this era.
Loving messages posted by the public after visiting
Nie Ling, Clerk of Liziba Community of Hualongqiao Sub-district, had the highest daily record of 340 phone calls and up to over 30,000 steps of walking per day; Zhang Rongqin, Director of Xinyingcun Community Neighborhood Committee of Shiyoulu Sub-district, provided services for community residents during the epidemic, including purchasing agent of food, community patrol, and policy propagandist...
There were also a number of exhibits, including a community’s exit admission slip, access card, forehead temperature gun, red armband, protective goggles, special epidemic prevention slogans, and letters of thanks written by residents. These exhibits recreated vivid images of the grassroots workers in community prevention and control, and also witnessed their hard work.
Each exhibit at the hall was a story, detailing the process of epidemic prevention and control and the resumption of work and production, which was built by every different industry.
