Frontline doctors from Peking Union Medical College Hospital shared their feelings after spending weeks in Wuhan fighting the COVID-19 epidemic during a news conference on Monday. 

Du Bin, director of the medical intensive care unit at the hospital, said the Chinese approach to control the COVID-19 epidemic may not be the only approach, and Chinese medical workers have also learned from what happened in Singapore and Japan.

When there is a different situation in the number of cases and community support system, people can adopt different approaches to achieve similar success in controlling the epidemic, he said. 

"It is an opportunity to learn from each other. The beauty of the world lies in diversity, not identity."

Yan Xiaowei, a cardiology doctor at the hospital, said "As a doctor in the ICU, I have seen many casualties, which I will never forget in my life. I want to share my experience in treating severe patients with overseas friends and colleagues back home."

Cao Wei, deputy head of infection medicine at the hospital, said during the SARS outbreak 13 years ago, she was still a medical student and the one to be protected. 

"And this time, I came with my teachers and colleagues to fight the disease, which I am very proud of, though medical workers like me have sacrificed a lot personally, being away from their families for a long time."

She also wants to express her deep thanks to all the nurses who have been taken the same responsibility as doctors. 

"Many of the nurses coming to Wuhan belong to younger generations and most of them were born after 1990. Without them, we won't have achieved so much, especially with critically ill patients," she said.
