The provincial government made over 42,000 greeting cards and provided them to the medical professionals from across the country who came to aid Hubei's fight against COVID-19, inviting them, and three family members, to the province where they can enjoy free admission to all A-level tourist attractions for the rest of their lives.

Last March, Wuhan University promised to offer medical professionals who came to Hubei, and the province's resident doctors and nurses, that worked on the front line a "green channel" to enjoy the university's beautiful cherry blossoms for three years.

This year, as the cherry blossoms reach full bloom, the university has kept its promise and sent invitations to those medical professionals to enjoy the flowers on March 13 and 14, days that have been allotted especially for them to visit.

The medical workers entered from a green channel at the university gate before enjoying a welcome ceremony, a guidance service and a special musical performance.

On the first day, more than 10,000 medical workers from across the country visited the university and met their former "comrades-in-arms". Many recognized each other by the timber of their voice rather than appearances, as many only interacted with each other through layers of protective clothing when they were fighting the virus.
