(Fighting against new crown pneumonia) Lanzhou's anti-epidemic "caring ferryman": there are always things more important than making money

  China News Service, Lanzhou, November 10 (Yang Na Ai Qinglong) In the early winter, Wang Gang, the driver of the "Lei Feng Love Fleet" of Lanzhou Jixiang Taxi Co., Ltd., went out at 5 am and drove to the hotel where the medical staff who needed to be picked up were staying. They are sent to the designated place.

After completing a killing job, his WeChat message prompts "There is a new pick-up task", and while taking off his gloves to reply "Received", the list was "stolen" by other drivers.

  Since the current round of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in Gansu Province, the "Lei Feng Caring Fleet" where Wang Gang is located has spontaneously established a volunteer car team for caring and picking up and forming a WeChat group of the "Epidemic Prevention Emergency Support Unit Vehicle Group". More than 60 drivers joined the team and shuttled medical staff free of charge. , Anti-epidemic volunteers, transporting anti-epidemic supplies, etc., became the "caring ferrymen" running around the road in the early hours of the night in Lanzhou.

  "Wherever medical staff or volunteers go, he will post the list in the group, and everyone will pick it up by'grabbing the order'." Wang Gang said that at the beginning of the epidemic, there were few drivers joining, and colleagues were able to do so. After grabbing orders, the number of drivers who joined later increased. Volunteer service orders need to work hard to grab them.

  Since the first person with a nucleic acid test positive in this round of the Gansu epidemic on October 18, Gansu has so far accumulated 144 confirmed cases in Gansu, including 83 in Lanzhou.

Lanzhou officials issued a notice on October 26, requiring all types of residential communities to implement closed management and calling for a home office mode.

  While most people are fighting the epidemic at home, Wang Gang and his colleagues chose to go out of the house and join the team of volunteer services.

"Someone has to do these things and not do them. When will our city return to normal."

  Wang Gang said that judging from the mental state of the medical workers who pick up and drop off every day, they are still very hard. Many people only eat a bucket of instant noodles for dinner at around ten o'clock in the evening.

Therefore, the city is far from recovering as before. He hopes that everyone can continue to "quiet and stay quiet", not to go out unless necessary, and not to waste the hard work of frontline workers.

  "We can't make other contributions, at least we can't add to the chaos." The elderly father wanted to go out to buy and was persuaded by Wang Gang to return.

Since doing volunteer work, Wang Gang confessed that his efforts cannot be compared with the hard work of front-line medical workers.

Seeing that the medical staff who came from other places to support Lanzhou stick to the front line of epidemic prevention and control every day, he has no reason to back down.

  In the process of transporting anti-epidemic materials, transporting nucleic acid samples and samples places high demands on drivers.

Wu Xiaolan, deputy captain of the caring team, repeatedly urged that the drivers of the team transporting nucleic acid samples must wear medical protective clothing and masks correctly and standardly, and do their own protection work, while ensuring the speed and efficiency of transportation.

  Since the outbreak, Wu Xiaolan got up at 4 a.m. every day to start a volunteer shuttle service.

Running around the city every day, watching the bustling streets on weekdays are now with few pedestrians and sparse vehicles, Wu Xiaolan said that she was very uncomfortable.

He wants to do his best for its recovery through his own efforts.

  "My car broke down once. In order not to delay picking up medical workers the next day, I went to a repairer to fix it overnight." Wu Xiaolan said. Talking about the lost income and the cost of "reversed" fuel consumption, Wu Xiaolan said with a smile: " In this special period, we need to warm each other, and there are always things that are more important than making money."
