Couple work in same lab to fight against coronavirus

Chen Wei and his wife Liu Yi are both senior associate technicians at Liuzhou Center for Disease Prevention and Control in south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. After the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, Chen was transferred to the center’s biosafety group. This group is responsible for testing involving nucleic acid detection of the virus – the closest front to the virus.

Liu knows what danger her husband is facing, so she hopes she can work in the same group with Chen to relieve his burden.

Therefore, she applied to join the biosafety group and sent her child to stay with her parents. After tests and screening, she finally made it into the 12-staff group, which runs 24 hours on 4 shifts. After days of working, the couple were arranged on the same shift and became “comrades” fighting in the same lab.

Liu introduced that they were classmates during their university days and have already known each other for 10 years. However, the two had never worked in the same lab before.

“It’s a dangerous job this time, so I wish I can stay with him, do a good job with him, and be by his side to remind him to protect himself,” the woman said.
