Good morning

Yesterday, a picture went popular on the Internet. 

A doctor stopped on the way to escort a patient for a CT scan, enjoying a sunset together with the patient. The 87-year-old patient has been hospitalized for nearly a month due to infection with COVID-19. He had not seen the evening glow for a long time. 

It happened at the Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University in central China's Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus. Doctor Liu Kai from Zhongshan Hospital affiliated to Fudan University in Shanghai has worked there for days to help treat patients.

As U.S. writer Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn." This is perhaps one of the most memorable and inspiring moments amid the coronavirus epidemic.
