Since the central Chinese city of Wuhan was quarantined due to the COVID-19 outbreak, most medical resources have been prioritized for coronavirus patients. But for those with chronic conditions, getting their hands on required medication hasn't been easy.

To help people in need, workers from nearly 100 local pharmacies have been cooperating with e-commerce platforms, voluntarily delivering medicine to those who are not able to go outside. Wang Zhile from Hankou Pharmacy and his colleagues have been working from morning to midnight every day.
