Bhavna Acharya |Apr 23, 2020

After months of treating patients and eventually contracting the fatal virus, Dr. Hu Weifeng and Dr. Yi Fan came out from the medical care with noticeable changes in their skin pigmentation.

Subsequently, they received their treatment at Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital with the involvement of a heart-lung bypass machine. This equipment actually functions as life supporters that pump oxygen into the blood from outside the body.

On the other hand, an infectious disease expert named Song Jianxin believed that their organs had suffered considerable damages during the treatment. In addition to the statement, he suggested that iron had entered their blood and caused the organ to malfunction. Iron was supposed to remain in their livers. This was responsible for the changes in the human’s skin tone.

After having awareness of his condition, he felt panic and started to have nightmares on a regular basis. Dr. Yi received counseling for the sake of his recovery from trauma. Despite his current inability to walk independently, the Wuhan Doctor was able to move around his bed.

On Dr. Hu’s side, his health condition was more serious. The doctor still remains in the intensive care unit after 99 bedridden days. According to Dr.Li, the treatment for coronavirus has definitely wreaked havoc on his mental health.
