On September 8, 2020, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed outat a meeting to commend role models in China's fight against the COVID-19 epidemic that "In this life-and-death fight against the severe epidemic, the Chinese people and nation have, with the courage to fight and win and the immense bravery, forged the great spirit of combating the COVID-19 epidemic featuring putting people's lives first, nationwide solidarity, sacrifice, respecting science and a sense of mission for humanity".
In the spring of 2020, a sudden outbreak of COVID-19 swept China. Through a united will, the Chinese people put up a strong defense to contain and fight against the epidemic. The country managed to contain the rapid spread of the virus in just over a month. In about two months, the daily increase in domestic coronavirus cases fell to single digits. A decisive victory was secured in once the hardest-hit Chinese city of Wuhan in just about three months… In the fight against the epidemic for more than eight months, 1.4 billion Chinese people breathed the same breath, shared the same future, and stayed truly connectedto each other, demonstrating that solidarity means strength. We have achieved major results in the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic, and forged the great spirit of combating the COVID-19 epidemic featuring putting people's lives first, nationwide solidarity, sacrifice, respecting science and a sense of mission for humanity.
"There are no angels in white, but a group of children who have changed their clothes." Let's do thumbs-up for the younger generation. The ordinary people fighting on the front line, including the medical workers in white, military in green, police in blue and volunteers in red, are worthy of our admiration. Wuhan, with a population of over 10 million, "remained in self-isolation" in the early stage of the epidemic. The heroic people in Hubei and Wuhan deserve our praise. In the time of crisis, the Chinese people have no fear of hardships and sacrifices. They shoulder the huge responsibility with their arms and show youth and passion, demonstrating the Chinese spirit, Chinese power, and Chinese responsibility.
The spirit of combating the COVID-19 epidemic isa silhouette of the spirit of Chinese nation. It is inspiring and admirable, and invincible. We should carry forward the great spirit of combating the COVID-19 epidemic.With concerted efforts and the courage to fight,the spiritual energy will be transformed into an enormous driving force for comprehensively building a modern socialist country and realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
