These medical frontline heroes strike again, tugging on our heartstrings with their absolute dedication to their professions even amid the coronavirus outbreak (Covid-19).

But they have got to do what they have to, even if it means having to get back into the grind after the death of a beloved.

Paying Last Respects To Her Mother
 
From a Youtube video that was uploaded on 12 February 2020, Wu Ya Ling, a Wuhan nurse was seen bowing while she faced towards the window.
 
It was a heartbreaking sight to witness as she sobbed uncontrollably while heaving.
 
Wu had received a video call from home notifying her about her mother’s death, which came as a surprise because her mother was known to be healthy.
 
And all Wu could do was pay her last respects to her mother, right there and then, bowing thrice as she positioned her body in the direction of her home at Kun Ming.

Wu was on duty then at Huoshenshan Hospital, an emergency specialty field hospital that was constructed specially to tackle the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak.
 
Calmed Herself Down And Got Back To Work
 
Being the professional that she is, she stood in the room for a couple of moments to regain her composure.
 
Her back was turned and it “pained the hearts” of netizens. 
 
 
It is not long later that she had to step out into the frontline once more.
 
Wu was seen to help a fellow colleague don gloves as they got together to update each other about their next steps.
