At this time, the daily count of domestically transmitted infections with confirmed symptoms ofCOVID-19has increased lately in our lovely Xi’an city. We all share the same goal, a common enemy; we all want to beat and will beat. The key is the value of trust, solidarity, and the beauty of unity, should we all band together now to get through it. Here arefivesmall stepseveryone can taketo help win the battle against this new wave of the pandemic.
1.Have Confidence in the Chinese Government and Our University
We have witnessed how well the Chinese government and our university have tackled the pandemic since the first outbreak. The government and scientists are getting more experienced than before; the nationwide used health code app, NAT result is out within hours, etc.If we do not trust one another, we are already defeated.
2.Be Cooperative and Understanding
We will strictly comply with the pandemic prevention regulations of the University, government, and community, take the required NAT on time. Unless necessary, we will not leave campuses or residential areas in order to minimize any kind of movement outdoor. We will pay close attention to our personal health and actively cooperate with pandemic investigation, flow investigation, and other prevention and control work. We will report to our instructors if any emergency happens.
3.Protect Ourselves and Others
We will definitely wear a mask well if we HAVE to go out. We will keep a physical distance of at least 1 meter from others. We will try some workouts and meditation to relax our mind and soul, consume healthy foods and fruits to strengthen our immune system. If feeling unwell, we will stay calm, seek advice from our instructors. Because we are very confident that our university and SIE will always be there for us.
4.Help Others, Help Yourselves
We are all on the same team to bring an end to this new wave of the spread. We can choose which role we want to play on the team. All-time ready as a volunteer when help is urgently needed, or be cooperative with the university or community will do. We’d like to contribute to the building of a community with a shared future for mankind together with Chinese people.
5.Say No to Rumors
We all come across a lot of information about COVID-19 on a daily basis, but not all of them are reliable. We will NOT believe any information from unknown sources. We will ensure that we will only believe the information released officially by the government or the university authority. We will spread positive energy actively and work together to create a positive public opinion atmosphere of the fight against the pandemic, no believing rumors, no spreading rumors.
During this special time, let’s keep ourselves busy in our studies and plow our energy into something positive because we are the architects of our future dreams. We are waiting for the bright spring with strong determination. Fighting, Xi’an! Wish all is well.
