Chen Zhihao, 30, is a midwife at the First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, capital city of South China's Guangdong Province. 

Chen rushed to Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province, to aid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) control efforts after the COVID-19 outbreak. She had fought on the front line of the anti-virus battle for two months, and cared for more than 100 severely and critically infected patients during her stay there.

Chen returned to her post after a short rest following her return from Wuhan.

The maternity wards Chen works in has 29 midwives, who receive about 3,000 pregnant women every year. 

"A midwife's technical skills and operational abilities are the key to the safety of the expectant mothers and infants," Chen said, adding that she hoped to be a good midwife to serve more mothers and infants in the future.
