In the national war against the COVID-19, countless heroes have emerged. Zhong Nanshan and Li Lanjuan, as well as the frontline medical workers, police officers and community members have shouldered the great trust of the people regardless of their own safety when the country was in danger. They are the loveliest people of the time. With their youth, they created a country and a nation of youth.
In this novel coronavirus battle, we are feeling China's speed, power and advantage every day. It took China only one week to find identification and sequence about the virus process, two days to build a state-level information system, three days to develop a preliminary nucleic acid detection kit, and ten days to build the "Volcano", "Raytheon" and other hospitals. Within a few days, all fronts and fields across the country, from major cities to towns and villages, were united to form a national strategy pattern of "One chess game" program. All of these made us to be proud of being a Chinese. It is because of this strength and advantage that our epidemic prevention measures have been implemented quickly. and we have been able to return to campus in this warm summer. Therefore, we should set up the patriotic ideal belief firmly.
This lecture made students deepen the professional understanding about the current C0VID-19 situation, be proud of being a Chinese, and be very grateful for living in such a superior socialist system. The students also strongly felt that the party and nation firmly stand at the people’s position. They had shown that they will make no effort to strive for the common future of themselves and of nation. (Writer: Zhang Huamei; Photographer: the participants)
