A Letter to the Prospective Int'l HUSTers
Editor： Date：March 4, 2020 Hits：
Greetings from Huazhong University of Science and Technology(HUST)!
This early spring is not as warm as expected. The cold winds seemed to show that the winter had not yet left us. However, no winter is insurmountable, and spring will definitely come. We are still looking forward to meeting you on the beautiful campus of HUST!
In the end of 2019, Wuhan, the capital city of central China's Hubei Province, was hit by a pneumonia caused by the noval coronavirus--COVID-19.
"The world is always with us." After the outbreak of the disease, Wuhan has been receiving strong support and care from all over the country and the world. The worldwide blessings, supplies and support have given us unprecedented confidence. With the help of our "global village", Wuhan is doing its best to combat the epidemic. As one of the top 10 universities in China, HUST is renowned at home and abroad for its strong disciplines such as medicine, science and engineering. The medical staff from Tongji Hospital and Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College of HUST as well as many other hospitals are fighting at the forefront against the epidemic as the backbone of this battle. In addition, the infrared thermometer developed by Huazhong Numerical Control Co. Ltd (HNC) in the HUST Science Park has been applied in various public places including airports and railway stations. At present, the disease prevention and control in Wuhan is getting better. When the flowers are in full bloom, HUST will embrace you with great warmth.
Wuhan is famous for cherry blossoms and Hot and Dry Noodles (Pinyin: Re Gan Mian, the most popular breakfast food in Wuhan), while HUST is well known as a "Forest University" because of its 72% greenery coverage. Our joint efforts will ultimately bring us a victory over this outbreak. We are looking forward to meeting you safe and sound at HUST when the spring comes around.
