Novel heroes: Iranian barista does his part in Wuhan

Sina Karami from Iran is a barista at a café named Wakanda in Wuhan, Hubei province.

There are several hospitals near the café treating patients with novel coronavirus. His cafe delivers coffee to nearby hospitals free every day, offering support to medical staff.

This year is the second year Sina and his brother have lived in Wuhan. After the coronavirus outbreak, the Iranian government dispatched charter flights to Wuhan to repatriate nationals. Sina's brother decided to go back to Iran and wanted Sina to go with him, but Sina's choice was to stay. Xina said he would not leave Wuhan at this difficult moment.

Sina also said despite the risks brought by the epidemic, the fearlessness of medical staff also impresses him, and he will not retreat — instead, he will continue to provide help to medical staff.
