President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, has sent greetings to medical workers across the country ahead of China's Medical Workers' Day.

Noting that medical workers are a vital force in advancing the cause of healthcare, Xi said since the COVID-19 outbreak, a great number of medical workers have raced against time and fought tenaciously against the virus at the frontlines. They have made significant contributions in fighting the epidemic, and demonstrated the noble spirit of giving priority to saving lives with total devotion and ultimate love, Xi added.

Medical workers should adhere to the people-first approach, uphold medical ethics, strive to excel professionally, shoulder important tasks with courage, take part in medical progress and make new contributions to advancing the Healthy China initiative and improving people's health and well-being.

As you wear protective suits and masks, I can't see your face. But in my heart, you are the loveliest people, Xi said.
