A foreign mother sent a hand-written thank you note to Wuhan Children's Hospital in Hubei Province last Tuesday for healing her baby.

Charlie, one year and nine months old, is of mixed heritage, with a Chinese father and British mother. The baby had a fever for several days, with a peak temperature of 40 C.

Beth, the baby's mother, had considered sending Charlie back to the UK for treatment. However, her Chinese husband talked her into bringing the baby to a local hospital, as Brighton was too far away and the baby could also receive good medical care in China.

When the baby was admitted to Wuhan Children's Hospital, he had a six-day high fever, with coughing and intense pain.

A doctor, Du Qing, diagnosed the baby with acute bronchitis and acute otitis media. The baby was cured and discharged five days later.
