An exhibition showcasing 7,000 documents, objects and photos related to the arduous fight against the novel coronavirus is underway at West Lake Gallery.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, Zhejiang government dispatched 2,018 medics to Hubei Province, the former epicenter of the pandemic in China. The first medical team consisting of 13 doctors and nurses arrived in Wuhan on January 25, the first day of Chinese Lunar New Year.

Nearly 60,000 professional medical staff stayed in Zhejiang to combat the virus. Another 12 rushed to support Italy’s pandemic outbreak.

In gratitude to medical staff for their contribution to the fight against the novel coronavirus, an exhibition at West Lake Gallery displays 7,000 precious documents, objects and photos related to the arduous fight against the virus.

Visitors can learn about Zhejiang authorities’ measures to contain the novel coronavirus, as well as efforts made by people and communities to help overcome the pandemic.

All dispatched medics returned home by early April as the outbreak wound down in the hard-hit region. No infection cases were reported among them. Many doctors and nurses wrote diaries during their tough days in Wuhan. Some are on display, elaborating the suffering and treatments of patients.

Visitors can also view construction plans for makeshift hospitals in Wuhan. To treat patients with mild symptoms and isolate the source of infection, the city converted public venues such as exhibition centers and gymnasiums into 16 temporary hospitals.
