Join us! GDToday is soliciting your thoughts, wishes, stories and moments in the fight against the pandemic in Guangdong recently.

A Guangzhou local nicknamed "Chongzi" created a clay work to boost the city's morale in the fight against the latest COVID-19 resurgence during the Dragon Boat Festival holiday.

The clay work features people from all walks of life including medical staff, volunteers and international friends rowing a dragon boat in front of the city's landmark building Canton Tower. There is a flag with the Chinese character "yong" meaning braveness on the bow, and four zongzis, China's traditional snack for the Dragon Boat Festival, in the sky delivering good wishes for the festival.

In the creator's view, although all dragon boat races in the COVID-19 risk areas in Guangdong have been canceled, Guangzhou is making full use of every minute to race against the COVID-19 virus during the holiday, and all the people in the city are bravely standing together to fight against the pandemic.

Russian businessman Amosov Gennady wrote several songs to spread positivity and confidence during his quarantine in Liwan District, Guangzhou. Gennady feels that the lockdown doesn't affect his life much, except that he now works from home and stops going out a lot.

Gennady thought the community was more organized this time and he was more positive. "Now there are tests. Now there is vaccine. Now people know what to do. I can see that the number of confirmed cases decreases every day, so I'm pretty sure this thing will be over soon."

GDToday is soliciting your thoughts, wishes, stories and moments in the fight against the pandemic in Guangdong recently.
