Ankita Chetana |Feb 10, 2020

Despite being on annual leaves, Gan RuYi (24yr) who lives in Hubei rode a bike back to Wuhan amidst coronavirus outbreak to fight against its spreading.

Gan RuYi is a female doctor of the testing department in the Institue of Hygiene and Epidemiology of the city. She was on her annual leaves at hometown but when realizing the serious outbreak of coronavirus (2019-nCoV), she made a decision. After expressing her desire of returning to Wuhan to support her colleagues, Gan’s parents fiercely opposed her.

However, the flame and energy in Gan seemed to be at the top that she did emphasize her colleagues’ workload with only two staff. When people’s demands of testing their blood increases, she needs to give a hand. Gan said: “I’m a doctor and people need me now.”

On the other hand, her mother was nervous about how she could reach Wuhan when the town was collapsing and nobody could enter or exit. But without any hesitation, the doctor acclaimed that she would arrive there by bike. In front of Gan’s rousing determination, her parents fained to give her a nod.

Right after that, Gan called the head manager of Institue of Hygiene and Epidemiology and the local in-charge to issue the pass for her on the basis of working need.

At 10 a.m on January 31st, Gan RuYi started to depart her bike traveling from her home with some foods such as noodles, cookies, and oranges. At 3 p.m on the same day, she reached 50 km of the journey and had a rest at her parents’ relatives for the first night.

On the second day of her journey to support Wuhan, she rode a bike at 8 a.m and passed about 100 more kilometers at 5 p.m. However, she was kept at the footage of the Yangtze bridge by the staff there.  Then she sent her bike at a grocery and walked to Qianjiang. After that, she rented a room in a hostel to take rest and have a boat of noodles.

The third day came, Gan called for a pass-by taxi but none of them agreed to take her to Wuhan. Up to 11 a.m, she was still in Qianjiang that finally, Gan rented a general bike and continued her journey based on the map of her phone.

While riding a bike, it rained heavily that Gan’s foods all got wet. She decided to stop at a small food stall of noodles and later met some policemen at 8 p.m. One of them saw that Gan got exhausted and worried if she could keep waging on her way. They helped her to rent a room near there and advised her to protect her health. A policeman reported Gan’s case to the Qianjiang Department of Traffic Police and the manager there gave a hand to her.

At 10 a.m on the next day of her journey, policemen attached Gan with a blood transferring car. At the noon of the same day, the car reached a district of Wuhan and then Gan went on renting a general bike to get back to her office.

Gan’s phone ran out of battery and she had no other tools to find the way to her office. Although she had stayed in Wuhan, she couldn’t remember the way that she got lost constantly. She told that nobody was on the road for her to ask. She just rode and rode with intense hope to find a way out before it got dark. According to Gan, she reached the Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology after 4 hours.

After getting back to the office, Gan called her parents to inform her safety but since then, there was no other news about her anymore. She shared: “I’m too busy to hold my phone.” As Gan said, she had to test over 20 samples of blood for the detected people having some coronavirus symptoms that she only had noodles or cookies for meals.

The 24-year-old doctor claimed that she doesn’t want to waste time eating or resting and just pays attention to her work.
