Lu and her husband had planned to visit her parents in their hometown in East China’s Shandong province during Spring Festival but after the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, they chose to stay.

Her husband, who is serving in the army, is taking care of the children at home now and voluntarily helps with disinfection around their residential community.

Lu didn't let her parents know she is now working with novel coronavirus-infected patients.

"I am a dermatologist so my parents think that the virus has nothing to do with my department and I am staying away from infected patients,” she said.

When they asked for a video chat, Lu would say she was working in the dermatology clinic and instead let her husband and children chat with them.

"We should win the battle with the virus as soon as possible, so that medical staff and patients can go back home," she said.

Lu is one of the 24 medical staff from Wuhan Children's Hospital that is now working as support at other hospitals. Besides working at the mobile cabin hospital at the exhibition center, others are at different quarantine centers.

The Wuhan Children's Hospital is receiving children that are infected with the novel coronavirus.
