The masks and protective goggles are tightly bound to help prevent infection – unfortunately, wearing them for so long tends to leave painful sores. However, these raw photos not only show the marks left from the masks – they also reveal the exhaustion in the medics’ faces.

According to the Chinese media, the medical personnel in Wuhan is working around the clock, many of whom don’t even leave the hospital after their shift is over.

Some people, however, weren’t happy with the way the government is handling the situation. “We listened to everything officials told us to do. We were so obedient,” said a Wuhan resident in an interview with NPR. They said [to] go into isolation, so we sent [my aunt and my mother] into isolation wards. But let me tell you what these wards really are; they are places where you send people to die by themselves.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
