Hey, so I just read a news about Covid 19 or the Coronavirus. Posted by The New York Times and has a title of “Two Women Fell Sick From the Coronavirus. One Survived.” Inside the news, the news tells about two workers that helped fight the Corona outbreak at one Wuhan Hospital. The name of the nurses is Dr. Deng Danjing and Dr. Xia Sisi. Both of them were 29 years old, they have a husband and a kid. The young mothers didn’t tell their children they had the coronavirus. Mama was working hard, they said, to save sick people. But unfortunately, one of them did not survive and one lived.
Both of them worked at the same hospital and felt sick at a similar time. But what makes one of them not survive? I have read the news and I will summarize what happened to both of them. These womens make contact with people who have this virus. But Ms. Deng was more easier to get the virus than Dr.Xia, Ms. Deng was only preparing to eat dinner at the hospital office then she got the virus when she got home. Dr. Xia was called back to attend to a patient, a 76-year-old man with suspected coronavirus. She dropped in frequently to check in on him. Then she got the virus too.
When they both quarantined, every day the doctors rely on a cocktail of other medicines, mostly antiviral drugs, to alleviate the symptoms. There is no known cure for Covid-19 so the doctors only give them what they can to prevent. They both were positive thinkers until by Ms. Deng’s fourth day in the hospital, she could no longer pretend to be cheerful. Because of the diarrhea and relentlessly shivering she had.

While Dr. Xia appeared to be recovering, she was still terrified of dying. Testing can be faulty, and negative results don’t necessarily mean patients are in the clear. Dr. Xia had anxiety and she was scared, she felt hopeless. Then came the call. Dr. Xia’s condition had suddenly got worse. In the early hours of Feb. 7, her husband rushed to the emergency room. Her heart had stopped.
Ms. Deng has a more positive mind than Dr. Xia had. Dr. Xia is more scared than Ms. Deng.
After I read the news I felt sad about Dr. Xia because she wants to help people but did not survive because of the virus. She had children, a family. It got me thinking, what will happen to her kid. But also relieved that Ms. Deng survived and later can help people again.
About the article, Indonesia has people who have been affected by the Coronavirus. Especially in the city where I live. I am not scared but I prevent myself from doing things. I stopped school because of the government too, I don’t go anywhere else besides in my house and around my house.
So i think that’s all about the news, here’s the link to the news if you want to read it again. Sorry if i was wrong writing the data, stay safe!
