The central city of Da Nang, Quang Nam, as well as several other cities and provinces across the country, have been devastated in the past two weeks by the novel coronavirus. Vietnamese are all in for the struggling battle, especially the front line doctors and medical staff who are risking their own health to protect others.

As the pandemic is growing more complicated, that medical personnel are relentlessly working round the clock, some are so exhausted they sleep on the cardboard boxes right in the hospital.

Moved by the touching scenes, Chau Thi Ngoc Anh, 21, from Quang Nam province, one of the two hardest-hit COVID-19 hot spots in Vietnam at the moment, has turned her drawing aptitude into cheerful paintings to energize Vietnamese citizens and medical personnel in particular in the COVID-19 battle.

Ngoc Anh sketched out those paintings based on photos she downloaded on social media. Instead of doing it the traditional way, Ngoc Anh drew those pictures on her smartphone, and it turned out great. It took her only three days to finish the series.

“Still, I wanted to draw more of their smiles, their family reunion moments after days of separation”, Ngoc Anh told iOne Net. “This might be a small gift I send to those who have been dedicating their lives to the safety of their fellow countrymen”.

To date, Vietnam has confirmed 717 COVID-19 cases, of which 327 cases are active, 9 have died. Since Jul 25, the country's been constantly reported large batches of new locally-infections, with Da Nang is the major hot spot. Other cities and provinces, including Quang Nam, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh city, Central Highlands, etc., are also bearing the brunt of the novel pandemic.
