The whole world is now watching what is happening in the Chinese city of Wuhan and sincerely empathizes with its residents who found themselves in the epicenter of infection. But few people think about how difficult it is for local doctors and nurses. They spend days on end around patients, risking infection themselves.
You can see 25 photos showing their working days below.
Nurses cut each other's hair, preparing to wear protective suits.
Now there are no longer nurses with long hair in local hospitals.
Some girls even have to shave their hair. This is necessary to avoid the risk of infection and spread of the virus, because the hair can become a source of infection.
After preliminary training, doctors and nurses put on special protective suits and write names on them to be able to identify colleagues.
The medical staff also uses special glasses and masks to prevent particles from getting into the eyes, nose and mouth.
As of January 30, 170 of the nearly 8000 patients infected with the 2019-nCoV coronavirus had died. It is noted that most of them were elderly and had chronic health problems.
Doctors and nurses from all over China were forced to go to Wuhan to help their colleagues cope with the flow of patients.
Nevertheless, there are critically not enough people. Doctors are very tired and sleep literally every free minute, and there are not so many of them.
