Disinfection staff sanguine about quarantine work

XIAO Lin starts his work by putting on a white protective outfit.

As the leader of the disinfection station of the Jiangning Road Subdistrict in Jing’an District, Xiao is responsible for disinfecting the homes of more than 40 families in quarantine.

On their first day of isolation, he and his three colleagues disinfected every corner of every room. During the 14-day observation period, they visit every day and spray disinfectant on their doorsteps and corridors, collecting household waste for processing.

“I’m not nervous at all,” Xiao said. “We have complete sets of protective equipment. There won’t be any problem if we follow the rules. Compared to frontline medical staff, we’re much safer.”

Xiao is often told that his work is risky. “For me, it’s a chance to relieve their suffering and tell them the right thing to do,” he said. “The virus is not scary if you protect yourself.”
