Zhang Ruiru, a 20-year-old student at Tsinghua University, went back to her home city of Wuhan for the traditional Chinese New Year holiday. Both of her parents were later diagnosed with the infection, and have recovered. Zhang said the fight against the outbreak has made her fully realize the strong unity of the Chinese people.
“Chinese people have stood as one to fight the virus. Medical workers from all over the country descended on Wuhan to help, and resources were sent into the city from all over China,” she said.
