On April 10th, Huang Xincheng, a student of Grade 2019 from School of Automation / School of Industrial Internet of Things, was praised by Organization Department of Xinyu Municipal Party Committee of Jiangxi Province and Xinyu Municipal Committee of the Communist Youth League for participating in the volunteer work of epidemic prevention and control in his hometown. On the occasion of whole country fighting COVID-19 epidemic, Huang Xincheng, as a young college student, actively participated in the volunteer service work of the community epidemic prevention and control, bearing heavy burdens and overcoming difficulties and fighting risks, setting up the pioneer image of league members, contributing youth sweat and strength, and demonstrating the responsibility of youth.
Huang Xincheng was admitted to School of Automation, Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications in September 2019. After the outbreak of COVID-19, he came up with the idea of participating in anti-epidemic volunteer service. After communicating with his family and obtaining support, he became an anti-epidemic volunteer of a community.
The most important thing in the fight against the epidemic is to control the source of infection and the flow of people. On Feb. 25, Huang Xincheng was assigned to a post in the community, along with the vanguard of members of CPC, to conduct body temperature measurements, entry and exit registration of the community’s residents and outsiders. At first, not everyone understood the importance of these measures, and some residents tried to evade the entry registration and body temperature measurements, and even made a break for the checkpoints every day. Huang explained the importance of these measures to them again and again and persuaded them to cooperate with their works. After he explained patiently and carried out the publicity of the epidemic prevention knowledge actively, the community residents were able to take the initiative to cooperate with their works and stay at home. After the introduction of the electronic pass, Huang Xincheng helped the elderly one by one to register the electronic pass for their unskilled operation on mobile phones.
The work of guard post was boring. Each shift was arranged for seven or eight hours. In order to prevent someone from sneaking into the community, volunteers must focus on the entry and exit personnel and repeat the monotonous but very important prevention and control measures. The early spring in the south is always rainy. In the simple tent in front of the community gates, the conditions were very hard. Many times heavy rains caused water soaking into the tent. But Huang Xincheng, together with other volunteers, worked hard to overcome difficulties, including the shortage of epidemic prevention materials, heavy screening workload, and simple epidemic prevention conditions, and successfully completed all the work during the volunteer period.
In reviewing voluntary work, Huang Xincheng said, “In this volunteer service for the prevention and control of the Novel Coronavirus epidemic, I deeply realize the advantages of China’s system, which makes me feel very proud as a Chinese. As a university student and a member of the Communist Youth League, I am very glad to participate in this voluntary service, to make contributions to the early end of the epidemic and to realize my self-value.”
