Representatives of several hospitals from Zhejiang attended the opening ceremony of the exhibition.

The organizers of the exhibition presented the book as a gift to these hospitals and Loong Air.


"These pictures remind me of my days in Wuhan," said Yang Zhiqiang from Zhoushan Hospital, "I remember the beautiful sunset on the day of my return and I couldn't help crying when getting off the plane."


"The patient in the picture was critically ill when admitted to the hospital and almost gave up. Fortunately, he recovered after about 20 days of treatment and thanked us with a bow when he walked out of the hospital," said Liu Limin, leader of Zhejiang's first batch of medics who were sent to Jingmen, Hubei province.


The exhibition lasts till June 30. Admission is free.
