Vegetable delivery men are fighting against the novel coronavirus epidemic by sending daily necessities ordered online to citizens in Wuhan, Central China's Hubei province.

Ma Zengchen is one of them. He gets up at 2 am to study information on his deliveries and prepares the day's products at his office around 3.

Ma starts his first delivery at 6 o'clock, having his first and only meal at 2 or 3 in the afternoon when he returns to his office to pick up more deliveries.

Then, Ma will continue to work till 9 or 10 in the evening. Sometimes, he works until midnight.

Ma only sleeps four to five hours on average each day, and has lived this way since Spring Festival.

Ma said he has to contact a lot of people each day, and it is highly risky work. He does not do this for financial gain now, but to make sure citizens in Wuhan have fresh fruits and vegetables each day.

The company Ma works for has many warehouses, and there are about 300 vegetable delivery men in the one where Ma operates from. They are also warriors in the battle against the outbreak.

With the efforts of countless ordinary people, Wuhan continues to move forward and overcome challenges brought by the virus.
