A video featuring drawings of medical workers and volunteers conducting nucleic acid tests in Foshan, Guangdong province went viral on social media platforms recently.

It took Chen Zhijie, 31, from the Chancheng district of Foshan five days to finish drawing the scene after the city launched mass testing for local residents in its effort to prevent and control the coronavirus outbreak.

Chen lives in a community just across the street from an area that was locked down due to tightened measures to fight COVID-19.

"I wish to show how medical workers and volunteers have been working hard and how local residents cooperate with the government in fighting against the coronavirus outbreak," he said.

Foshan has reported nine locally transmitted COVID-19 cases and one asymptomatic carrier since May 27, according to the local health commission.
