On March 22, the first, second and 19th Guangdong medical teams and the 24th Guangdong medical team on mental health, totaling 313 medical workers, flew back to Guangzhou after completing their COVID-19 missions to support Hubei. Among them were 24 medical workers from the First Affiliated Hospital of Jinan University.
JNU's nine medical workers who rushed to Hubei on Lunar New Year's Eve, Jan. 24, and 15 more who went to assist them on Feb. 18 had fought the virus for more than 50 days in Hankou Hospital, the one with the most difficult working condition and the most patients in critical condition, saving many lives. When the situation was the most uncertain, they assembled in an hour and rushed to Wuhan, the most severely affected city. They were among the earliest medical teams that flooded into Wuhan to help. In Hankou Hospital, with support from three Guangdong medical teams, 412 patients were treated and 297 were released.
