This is a work in the form of a series of illustrations. It tells of the measures and events in China's fight against novel Coronavirus. I used a simple and understandable creative technique to restore those difficult days.
In early 2020, a new virus called COVID-19 was discovered in Wuhan, China. At first, people didn't take it seriously enough, thinking it was just a common disease. Later, more and more people were infected with this virus, which made the whole country nervous. They didn’t know where it came from, how it formulated, what it’s element and so on.

Later, more and more people were infected with this virus, which made the whole country nervous. They didn’t know where it came from, how it formulated, what it’s element and so on.
These days, 1.4 billion Chinese had worked together to “Smash” the virus, the country had gradually come back to life under their efforts. The most critical point to China’s fight against the virus was the quick response from the Chinese government. In addition, it was the quarantine measures. Chinese separated the healthy people and infected people, and the quarantine also reduced the movement of people and the spread of the virus. It protected the citizens as much as possible. Finally, national rations also account for a large proportion.
Before the virus broke out, it was the Spring Festival, a traditional festival in China. Many people wanted to go home and get together with their families, however, as the virus appeared in Wuhan, over 500 people were infected on January 22, with 17 deaths, the day supposed to be a happy day, and this information destroyed it. The government had to close Wuhan down. That left many people unable to reunite with their families. People had to stay at home. The normally busy Spring Festival was getting cold and cheerless this year. Relatives were afraid to communicate with each other and we could only say “Happy New Year” in mobile phones by using WeChat or take message. Some even had new year’s eve dinner alone. Soon, Wuhan liked a pause button was pressed, and the city fell into an extremely silence. It was said that Wuhan at 9 o 'clock in the evening was as quiet as 3 o 'clock in the morning. Meanwhile, this kind of situation was not only happened in this city, but also in the whole country.
In the face of the epidemic, masks became a necessity in people’s daily life. Everyone began to stock up on masks. Mask used to be easy to ignored, because there was no need to wear, but now, it was the most important thing that could save people’s life. These days, Chinese who valued affection gave up visiting relatives and friends, just staying at home honestly. The security guard room of the community became the most important post. The security guards took the temperature of everyone who came in and out of the community and watched over the safety of every resident. This "unexpected long holiday" had left most people staying at home all day. In order to pass the time, some people who never cooked before had begun to study cooking skills, someone who were busy at work had started to do exercise at home, and schools had also taken online classes to ensure the quality of teaching. At the call of the government, most of residents went shopping every three days to avoid the crowds.
At the most difficult time in the fight against the virus, China put the safety and health of the citizens first. The government took measures decisive. To minimize infection, they built two hospitals and it only took less than two weeks on land that used to have nothing, the workers worked day and night, minute by minute. Many volunteers had gone to the front line.
Almost all the doctors in China were busy. and residents in the community had done our part by donating money ,masks, supplies to help these people. “14” had become a significant number in this period. Everyone who returned from another country or came into contact with an infected person would be quarantined at home for 2 weeks. Because the incubation period was 14 days. Residents followed the rules strictly, just to do our bit to get through this terrible time.
Chinese never give up, they would always create chance when it seemed to be impossible, they solved problems together. Because this was not only a war against the virus, but also a test of a nation. With this national spirit, nothing was out of the question.
