Carrying weight of virus work

Protective gear to guard against radiation left many front-line radiologists sweaty and exhausted

Doctor Luo Yi said workers in the radiology department of Tongji Hospital in Wuhan, Hubei province, literally carried a heavier load than others in the battle against the novel coronavirus outbreak.

"In addition to the ordinary white or blue protective suit that you see in news reports, we have to wear extra heavy gear that weighs about 8 kilograms to block harmful rays," he said.

Luo and his colleagues have been on the front line for nearly two months in the hardest-hit city by the virus, with most of their patients in severe or critical condition.
