The Chinese New Year of 2020 has left an indelible mark on the minds of millions of Chinese
people. Wuhan, a metropolitan city located strategically in central China and known for
centuries as a major transportation hub, became the epicenter of COVID-19 overnight. The
whole city has since plunged into a tough battle against this mysterious, highly infectious,
and fatal epidemic. Legions of ordinary people—medical workers, volunteers, deliverymen,
construction workers, and so on—have participated in this battle, with many of them
coming from other cities and provinces of the country.
Guangming Daily, one of China’s most read newspapers, dispatched a group of seasoned
journalists to Wuhan shortly after the outbreak of the coronavirus, and has since released
a series of feature articles digging deep into this battle. Reporting from Wuhan collects 17 of
these articles published from January 30 to February 15, 2020, telling the stories of some
of these brave fighters working day and night in various capacities, in a city that has united
and survived in strength and love.
