An unknown virus broke out in a city of 11 million population and a lock-down was imposed overnight… Dr. Wendy Hao volunteered to work on the front line in the fight against the pandemic. Will she be able to treat her patients and win this battle?
One World, One Fight! Is a graphic novel based on Jack Ma Foundation and The First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine’s joint publication “Handbook of COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment”. The graphic novel explains the epidemiology, clinical classifications, treatment, prevention, and many more through an engaging story.
Let’s learn more about the COVID-19 that overturned 2020!
In this episode, we discussed the use of High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC), psychology intervention of patients, and emergency hospital design.
Even before creating the non-profit graphic novel "One World, One Fight!", we were very appreciative of healthcare workers globally, BUT we have to admit that we only truly began to understand their commitment and sacrifices after embarking on this project. This understanding also helped us to realize our social responsibility as an individual.
For example, if we have never seen the design of "three zones and two passages", we would not know how tedious it is for the medics to simply enter the contaminated zones to treat patients.
If we have never seen with our own eyes the layers after layers (and that include multiple layers of gloves) of PPE healthcare workers have to put on, we would never understand that it is not only hot/stuffy, but also restricts the healthcare workers in many ways, i.e. they cannot feel the veins/they cannot use the stethoscope for diagnosis/the goggles sometimes blur their visions... Just imagine how much extra pressure these must have put on them.
We would not know that other than the dents, the healthcare workers are also suffering from rashes, blisters and swells caused by the tightly secured face masks .
Medical professionals around the world are still in search for the cure, and sharing of experiences and research are crucial to our victory against COVID-19.
As practices in different countries differ, we see great value of graphic novel as a visual narrative medium that enables professionals, patients, their families, and the public to better comprehend the different measures implemented.
We would like to believe that the commitment and sacrifices made by these Chinese healthcare workers have earned them invaluable experiences in handling infectious disease and these experiences are crucial to the rest of the world. Not only for COVID-19, but for any future pandemics.
