Mrs. Li is over seventy years old, and has lived in Yancheng all her life. Jenny, a reporter, asked her a few questions.
Q1: Tell me about your parents, brothers and sisters.
My parents, my sister and three brothers lived in a tiny house with a toilet we shared with our neighbours. There was no electricity. The house was lit by candles. We weren't very rich, but we were happy. My sister was the oldest child and she left school when she was only twelve to help my mother at home.
Families have changed a lot since I was young. They were much bigger in those days. Today most people only have one child!
Q2: Did your parents have jobs?
My father was a postman, and he often worked twelve hours a day. My mum was a teacher before she met my father. But looking after us was a full-time job, so she stayed at home. Today the position of women has changed. It's usual for married women to go out to work, but it was less common in the past. My father had the same job the whole of his working life. These days people change their jobs much more often.
Well, I remember the family meals, three times a day. My mother was always cooking for us. The food was always freshly cooked, with lots of fish—my grandfather was a fisherman, and my mother never bought ready-made food as people do today, so it was much better for us. And we didn't have television, so we played games together a lot after supper. Our life is better now. One day I'll be talking to my grandchildren.

“Please don't go to Wuhan unless it's really necessary,” Zhong Nanshan, a famous doctor, said to the public when the coronavirus hit Wuhan. But Zhong, 84, rushed on an overnight train to Wuhan to fight the disease.
Many Chinese know Zhong as the hero who defeated SARS in 2003. People share his photos and words online, saying they “trust every word of Zhong”. He has given Chinese people confidence in winning this battle. Zhong grew up in a family of doctors. His goal has always been to save as many lives as possible. In 2003, when SARS hit China, he volunteered to treat patients and asked other doctors to send their most serious cases to him. After months of efforts, his treatment plan for SARS was adopted by China and then the whole world, which saved thousands of lives.
Seventeen years later, Zhong is once again leading an expert team to deal with the coronavirus. This new virus is known to be more dangerous to old people, but Zhong worries little about his own safety.
On January 18, he took a high-speed train from Guangzhou to Wuhan. Two days later, he became the first expert to tell the public that the virus can be spread between humans. On January 29, he and his team spent over four hours online checking five patients who were in serious condition. The next day, he chose a treatment plan for those patients. Under his guidance, his team developed a quick test kit for the disease that can show results within 15 minutes.
As People's Daily wrote, “the 84-year-old Zhong Nanshan shows his professionalism as a doctor, courage as a soldier, and a sense of duty as the backbone of our nation. “
