In January 2020, novel coronavirus was attacked in Wuhan, Hubei. Among the many angels in white who are fighting against the virus and saving lives, I have noticed a 84 year old man with gray hair. He is academician Zhong Nanshan whom I admire most.
The novel coronavirus is highly infectious. It is infected with the virus and is dangerous when it is heavy. You have been appointed commander in chief of the "war epidemic" by the state. When you went to Wuhan, when you were interviewed by reporters, you earnestly warned the people of the whole country: "nothing, don't go to Wuhan." Then he boarded the high-speed rail without hesitation. The photos of you taking a rest on the high-speed rail seat make people all over the country moved and tearful. After arriving in Wuhan, you have repeatedly appealed through the media to everyone to pay attention to safety and isolation, but you have put yourself into the battle without gunsmoke regardless of your personal safety.
Today, the number of confirmed infections and deaths is increasing day by day, which is a great test and threat to the angels in white participating in the battle. But you didn't flinch, but you took out your own skills and courage to take on the responsibility of protecting your country. With your actions, you show the heroic spirit of "die in national calamity, and see death as return". Your white robe is your battle garment, and your wisdom is your sword. You work day and night to lead the angels in white to overcome difficulties and devote yourself to human health. In a recent interview, you said with tears of heroes in your eyes, "Wuhan is a city of heroes, which can pass the customs." Once again, your feelings of serving the world in a tearful manner.
Academician Zhong Nanshan, I admire you! You have succeeded in carrying out an assignment, go forward with great strength and vigour, and novel coronavirus, which has caused the destruction of human beings, and have already sown a sharp sword. It is a great blood for Wuhan, for the motherland and for humanity.
Academician Zhong Nanshan, I admire you! Not only you, but also tens of thousands of angels in white who participated in the "war epidemic" like you and ran retrogradely to the most dangerous battlefield. You are the most beautiful Chinese, thank you!
Dr. Zhong Nanshan was born in October 1936 in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province. He is one of the famous medical scientists in the 21st century. He studied at Guangdong experimental high school in 1953 and graduated from Beijing Medical College in 1960. In the first Chinese National Games, Zhong Nanshan got the championship of the men's 400m Hurdles and set up a National record at that time.
In the spring of 2003，the SARS epidemic broke out in China and across the globe. Zhong Nanshan not only led but also took an active part in the battle against SARS. At that time no one really knew much about SARS and most people had no natural defenses against the disease.
Dangerous as it was,Zhong Nanshan worked hard day and night treating the patients.Through their hard work for several months, Zhong Nanshan and his workmates achieved remarkable result. Soon the SARS epidemic was stopped in its track.
Zhong Nanshan was awarded one of the top ten people moving China in 2004. He has been working in the medical field for over 60 years. He is a good doctor in thecountrymen' eyes andrespected by all the people in China.
A Famous Person I Would Like to Meet
I would like to meet Dr. Zhong Nanshan for many reasons. Firstly, I will ask him about his personal opinion of the novel coronavirus outbreak, like what lessons we should learn from it and how to prevent the novel coronavirus. Then I will compare and contrast his point of view with mine. Secondly, I will seek his advice about some health precautions. Even though the outbreak may end soon, the coronavirus will not disappear completely. Therefore, I will ask him about the hygiene habits that we should keep and practice. Also, I would like to consult Dr. Zhong about his experience during the outbreak of SARS in 2003, because I was not born yet and I hope to learn something valuable from the past. At last, I will ask Dr. Zhong about how he made the decision to rush to the front line and cure patients at the risk of getting infected himself, considering that it is an exhausting and dangerous job. Dr. Zhong is a representative figure of Chinese scientists and doctors in this outbreak. He also has made significant contributions and efforts to slow the spreading of the novel coronavirus. I wish I could actually meet Dr. Zhong some day!
