Driver helps navigate the road to recovery

He is driving the response, literally, to the novel coronavirus outbreak. Volunteer driver Yin Zizhe has been shuttling doctors and nurses between hospitals and their homes free of charge since his hometown of Wuhan suspended its public transportation system-including subways, buses and ferries-on Jan 23 because of the outbreak.

Speed and safety are in combat. He has to go as fast as he can, so that his passengers arrive safely at their destinations, not least because the well-being of others depends on their expertise and knowledge.

"It's like a race against death. The patients are waiting for them," says Yin of his responsibilities. He recalls one occasion, and there have been many, when he drove a doctor to the hospital and within minutes of arriving the passenger was performing surgery.
