A group of general managers of large enterprises have volunteered in a mask plant in Suzhou City of east China's Jiangsu Province for supporting its production, as surgical masks are in urgent demand across the country due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus pneumonia (NCP).
The mask plant, which is situated in an industrial park of Suzhou, has been back in operation in advance in response to the viral outbreak.
A man named Li Shen joined in the production as a volunteer.
Li is not an employee of the plant. Just before the Spring Festival, he was talking about a big deal with his client. The 48-year-old is actually the general manager for the Asia-Pacific of a foreign-funded enterprise. One might wonder how come he is working here.
To start with, hear the story of another person, Xu Xiang.
On Jan 26, the second day of the Chinse Lunar New Year, Xu learned in Wechat, a Chinese social app, that a plant was looking for volunteers, said him.
The plant Xu talked about is just the mask plant Li works in, which has been in operation as emergency response to the viral outbreak, with its production rising above the usually around 40,000 masks. Still, they need more hands to work at full swing.
So Xu went to the plant and learned about its demands for manpower. As he thought about who to ask for help, it came to him that he could send a help message in a group chat of Wechat.
He did so, but did not really put too much hope on this, for all the members of the group chat are general managers of large local enterprises. To his surprise, his call was met with enthusiastic response. It was how Li joined.
"As a Chinese, I just felt that we need to do something to fight the virus. We need to stand out as long as we are needed. We should and can do it, so why not," said Li.
Besides registering themselves, many of the general managers also called for employees of their enterprise to volunteer. As more and more people enroll, Xu turned to coordinating, making schedules for the volunteers.
The volunteers can only do some supporting work, but now with more hands in the plant, skilled workers can be transferred to more important positions. As a result, the three production lines of the mask plant have been working at full capacity.
There are now over 130 volunteers working on a rotating eight-hour shift schedule.
"We produced 200,000 masks today. We are extremely happy to hear the news, because the 200,000 masks have been sent out before we left work on 17:00. We are rest assured, because they will reach the hospitals in Wuhan in urgent demand of the supplies," said Li.
The capacity utilization rate of masks of China has reached 73 percent by Feb 7, with medical mask 87 percent, said China's National Development and Reform Committee in a press conference on Feb 9.
A total of 35,982 NCP cases have been confirmed on the Chinese mainland by 24:00 of Feb 9, with 6,484 in critical situations, 3,281 discharged from hospital, and 908 deaths, according to China's National Health Commission.
