Female members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in Beijing have been working hard on the front line of the fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) since a cluster of confirmed patients were found on June 11.
Under the leadership of CPC committees at all levels, female CPC members in Beijing have played exemplary roles on the front line of the anti-epidemic battle, including communities, nucleic acid sampling sites, and designated hospital wards.
One of the CPC members, Song Yajing, a 43-year-old woman who joined the CPC five years ago, is head of a community health service station of Beijing's Tongzhou District. The station offers medical treatment and consultation services to home-based quarantined people. It also provides nucleic acid tests, and publicizes anti-epidemic knowledge to the community residents.
Ma Hongxia, 32, joined the CPC eight years ago. She had been responsible for conducting nucleic acid testing in Wuhan, capital of Central China's Hubei Province, since the epidemic outbreak. Now, she is working in an advanced nucleic acid testing lab in Beijing. She and her team receive and deal with tens of thousands of samples every day.
Like Song and Ma, many female CPC members have stuck to their posts to contribute to the battle against COVID-19 epidemic. Many of them work in 7000-plus communities in Beijing to guarantee residents' security by taking temperatures, registering information and guiding them to do nucleic acid test.
