Changjiang Daily News (reporter Sun Xiaotian, correspondent Wang Min) Chen Jun, 49, is the deputy director of the laboratory of Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital, in charge of the nucleic acid detection of patients. Since the outbreak of the epidemic, the 12-year-old Party member has been fighting on the front line. Its a common practice to be busy until two or three oclock in the morning. His hands are covered in rubber gloves for a long time, causing serious swelling and red spots on his skin.

Chen Jun graduated from Tongji Medical College of Huazhong University of science and technology and has worked in Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital for 19 years. From the beginning of January, 27 people in the laboratory of the hospital went to the battle, and blood routine, biochemical, immune, microbial, virus detection make a hurried journey without stop. At first, there was no reagent for nucleic acid detection. Every suspected patient had to be excluded from diagnosis and tested for known influenza, pneumonia and other viruses.

With the reagent, only one is used, but the number of tests is large, which is not easy. Chen Jun told reporters that only clinical gene amplification laboratory can do viral nucleic acid test, and the number of tests needed every day is less than 100 cases and more than 300 cases. It takes about 6 hours for a nucleic acid test, from sample processing to nucleic acid extraction and amplification to the test results. The lab conducts two batches of tests a day, which means he and his colleagues need to work continuously for more than 12 hours.

Different from the doctors fighting in the ward, the laboratory doctors hide in the laboratory and deal with viruses every day. They are invisible doctors. Like the doctors in the ward, they also need to wear goggles, protective clothing, rubber gloves Only fully armed can we face to face with the virus.

(function() {(window. Slotbydup = window. Slotbydup| []). Push ({ID: u5811557, container: ssp_, async: true});)) (); Chen Jun has polio, although it does not affect walking and standing, but compared with ordinary people, his physical strength and energy are worse. There are more than 10 steps in each batch of extraction and detection, and the whole process should be highly focused on the operation, especially the most susceptible sample processing and nucleic acid extraction stage, which can not be distracted at all. Im very tired, but I cant flinch. There are so many people waiting for the result outside. I have to insist on biting my teeth. Chen Jun said. The laboratory is a closed space. Its hard to bear the heat if you put on protective clothing. In rubber gloves, sweat cant be ruled out. The hands are in a humid environment for more than ten hours, causing skin inflammation, swelling and erythema. Everyone has this kind of situation. I may be more serious because of my physical condition, but it doesnt affect my work. Chen Jun carefully applied alonson ointment and gauze to the red and swollen area. He limped and walked firmly to the laboratory. Source: Changjiang Daily Author: Sun Xiaotian editor in charge: Wang Hailu, na1702

Chen Jun is suffering from poliomyelitis. Although he does not affect walking and standing, his physical strength and energy are worse than that of ordinary people.

Im very tired, but I cant flinch. There are so many people waiting for the result outside. I have to insist on biting my teeth. Chen Jun said.
