The ongoing outbreak of corona virus disease in 2019 (COVID 19) is posing a major threat to international health and the economy [1,2]. On 30 January 2020, the world health organization (who) had declared COVID 19 to be a public health emergency of international concern. To combat the epidemic, the Chinese government and medical staff have made great efforts and sacrifices. Since December 2019, local medical staff in Wuhan, China, have begun treating patients with COVID 19 infection in the face of increased workload and risk of infection. And up to February 18th, more than 30,000 doctors and nurses from other Chinese provinces had also arrived in Hubei to help treat patients . During the more two months of fighting against the
epidemic, Chinese medical staffs were under great physiological and psychological pressure .
