Chinese Fight Against SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) in Asia

Around the Spring Festival in 2003, an atypical pneumonia of unknown etiology began to spread in some areas of Guangzhou. 
Just after the beginning of February, the emergency department of Ersha in Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine began to treat patients with confirmed or suspected SARS, with a maximum of 5 people per day. 

There was rapid increase of SARS patients

With the rapid increase of SARS patients, the work intensity of the department continues to increase. Ye Xin took the lead and started working overtime from February 8. 
When she was busy, she even refused to answer her family's calls, and just said to the nurse who answered the phone: "Tell him, I am in class, it's okay."

At noon on March 4, Ye Xin, who was extremely tired, began to show symptoms of fever and was diagnosed with SARS. At 1:30 on March 25, less than a week after the patient who was last rescued by Ye Xin, who was also infected with SARS, was discharged from hospital, Ye Xin left her beloved post, comrade-in-law and relatives forever. 47 years old. 
On the battlefield against SARS, she gave her precious life and was regarded as a revolutionary martyr by the Guangdong Provincial People's Government.

Tenacious fight against SARS regardless of personal safety

On April 16, 2003, the "Health News" published a newsletter "Forever White Soldiers-Recalling Ye Xin, Head Nurse of Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine", telling the touching stories of Head Ye Xin's tenacious fight against SARS regardless of personal safety.

Ye Xin left, but it seemed that he had never gone far. Every Qingming Festival, Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine will organize medical staff to visit Ye Xin martyrs' tomb. To promote Ye Xin's spirit, Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine established March 25 as "Ye Xin Memorial Day".

In addition, the Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine annually commemorates Ye Xin's theme activities and the "Ye Xin Cup" post skill competition to promote all medical staff to establish the character of "patient first, love and dedication, unity and cooperation, sacrifice sacrifice".
