(Message in the Picture) We have been in Sweden for half a year and gradually accustomed to life and learning here. Recent days have witnessed that the epidemic grows increasingly severe. We are grateful that BISTU faculties and staff care so much about our health and safety. We are not in China but we are concerned about our motherland, ur families, and friends every minute. The past two months have seen the great efforts of the whole China in combating the epidemic. Exemplifying professional dedication, all medical workers are saving and protecting lives around the clock despite the risk of infection and exhaustion from overwork. We are very happy to see that a number of Chinese cities now have zero growth in confirmed cases. And we are deeply convinced that the victory is coming to us! Be strong, China!
