We will fight to win
A written request to help fight the novel coronavirus, made by members of the Xiaotangshan medical team at the former First Military Medical University－now part of Nanfang Hospital in Guangzhou, Guangdong province－on Jan 23.The team members referred to their old hospital's name to emphasize their experience and abilities.
Dear Party Committee of Nanfang Hospital.
We were members of the Nanfang Hospital medical team that was sent to Beijing's Xiaotangshan Hospital (an "instant infirmary" built quickly to treat patients infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome) in 2003 to fight SARS. That year, we made our due contribution to the national fight against SARS, and we managed to ensure that no medical personnel became infected.
Now, 17 years later, people across the country are facing the ravages of the new coronavirus. So, as a group with rich experience that defeated SARS, we are duty-bound to help!
We hereby apply to the Party Committee of the hospital to allow us to help fight the new epidemic. We are ready to be at your disposal at any time, and every team member is willing to go to the front line to make a contribution.
Here, we actively ask to join the fight against the epidemic, if the need arises. We will answer the call to serve and will fight to win!
