A medic in Huashan Hospital has her picture taken in front of a board with the pictures of each medic serving on the front line.

All 287 medics from Huashan Hospital who served on the coronavirus pandemic front line returned to the hospital on Friday to celebrate their victory.

The hospital had sent the largest number of medics in China to Hubei Province, former epicenter of the outbreak, Huashan officials said.

A total 273 medics went to Hubei in four teams while 17 medics led by Dr Zhang Wenhong, director of Huashan’s infectious disease department, worked at the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center, the designated hospital for coronavirus patients.

Three medics went to Wuhan after fulfilling their tasks at the center.

“We created many records and saved many critical patients in the process,” said Dr Ding Qiang, Huashan’s president.
