  • Dr Yi and Dr Hu were left fighting for their lives after catching the virus at work
  • Doctors saved them by hooking them to a life-support machine called ECMO
  • Change of their skin tone is caused by hormonal imbalances due to liver damage 
  • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

Two Chinese doctors who were critically ill with COVID-19 have seen their skin turned dark after being brought back from the brink of death.

Dr Yi Fan and Dr Hu Weifeng, both 42, caught the novel coronavirus while treating patients at the Wuhan Central Hospital in January.

Their abnormal skin colour is caused by hormonal imbalances after their livers were damaged by the virus, their doctor told Chinese state media.

Dr Yi and Dr Hu are colleagues with late whistle-blower Li Wenliang, who was punished for sounding the alarm of the virus and then died of the disease on February 7.

The two medics were both diagnosed on January 18. 

They were taken first to the Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital and then transferred to Tongji Hospital's Zhongfa Xincheng branch, according to Chinese state broadcaster CCTV.

Dr Yi, a cardiologist, beat COVID-19 after doctors hooked him to a life-support machine called ECMO for 39 days.

ECMO is a drastic life-support procedure which replaces the function of the heart and lungs by pumping oxygen into the blood outside the body.

Speaking to CCTV from his hospital bed on Monday, Dr Yi said he had largely recovered.

He said he could move in bed normally, but was still struggling to walk independently.

Dr Yi confessed that the ordeal of battling the deadly disease had, to a certain degree, traumatised him.

He told a reporter: 'When I first gained conscious, especially after I got to know about my condition, I felt scared. I had nightmares often.'

He said he was trying to overcome the psychological hurdle. He added doctors often comforted him and had arranged counselling for him.

He is now being looked after in an ordinary ward.

Dr Yi told his doctor that he was recovering well and his wounds had largely healed on April 6

Footage released by Beijing TV Station shows Dr Zhan Qingyuan from China-Japan Friendship Hospital talking to Dr Yi and Dr Hu in their wards on April 6 in Tongji Hospital.

Beijing-based Dr Zhan had been treating the pair and was checking on them before he and his team left Wuhan and returned to the capital city.

Dr Yi told Dr Zhan he was recovering well and his wounds had largely healed while Dr Zhan told Dr Yi it was his responsibility to 'save his comrade'. 

Dr Hu was not able to speak at the time due to his poor health, but he shook hands with Dr Zhan to express his gratitude.

Dr Hu's condition was more serious.

The urologist has been bed-bound for 99 days and his overall health is weak, said Dr Li Shusheng who treated Dr Hu.

Dr Li said he was worried about Dr Hu's mental health.

'He could not stop talking to the doctors who come to check on him,' Dr Li said.

Dr Hu underwent ECMO therapy from February 7 to March 22 and regained his ability to speak on April 11.

He is still being looked after in the intensive care units in the same hospital as Dr Yi.

Dr Li suspected that the two medics' skin turned dark due to a type of medicine they had received at the beginning of the treatment.

He added that one of the drug's side effects is the darkening of the skin colour. He did not name the drug.

Dr Li expected both medics' skin colour to return to normal after the function of their livers improves.

There's nothing wrong with darkened skin. I've had it all my life. Put creams and lotion on yourself and make yourself handsome as President Barack.

You can wake up with darkened skin or you can keep your regular color laying in the graveyard decomposing like a big dead dog.

The only people worrying about color are people with NO color. How handsome is the Orange Asshole? Doesn't look good to me at all!!!!

  This is merely subliminal racism trying to slither in the psyche of folks and make this crisis worse.  And yes black folks are dying in droves....not because of their underlying conditions but because they have been denied testing in drive- thrus and hospitals.  While in the hospital, they are less to have access to ventilators.  On the streets less to wear mask because you cant find any.  Not everybody have due rags or bandanas laying around the house.  Plus blackfolks some of em don't even try being independent-they can make their own masks-they can make every thing else.  Right?  And take care of your own community.  Go to the food banks and volunteer for those in the high risk group-65 and over, the elderly, and the disabled.  This the time to be kind to your culture.  Cuz as we can see massa don't give a fock.  Once he found out more blacks were dying than whites....now he wants to reopen the country. This kind of sick attitude is what killed millions of his own folks during the Bubonic Plague epidemic-massa didn't care about his own people and continue to spread the Bubonic Plague throughout the many wars.. He's doing the same thang now.   Cuz he certainly don't give a fock about blackfolks.....The senator Tamara Harris had to implement a bill last week that provides for Blacks and miniorities including immigrants during a [health/crisis] pandemic.  Otherwise, we would still be the last ones to get tested or admitted to the hospital.  To remedy the disease, he the prez alludes to ingesting and injecting bleach in an effort to "clean" up the virus.  Who you think he's talking to? Us.  Blackfolks.   But the thing is many of his followers were listening too and took that advise meant for us.  There were so many white folks doing it [buying up bleach products and syringes] that he had to come back on television and say  he was  just joking.  Cuz they believe every ignorant ass thing he says.  So.  It's every man, woman, child for himself.  And the key?  Stay healthy as much as you can.  And stay away from these ignorant ass folks who think this coronavirus is a joke-it's no joke.   It's genocide.    But!

White folks don't give  shit about anything but MONEY!! They've NEVER given a shit about Black people, so whatever happens during this pandemic shouldn't be a surprise. Black men, stay out of those god damn PRISONS. Stop committing crimes and killing your people. Once your black behinds get behind those bars, it's all over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is exactly what is happening where Black people are concerned with this Corona Virus PLANDEMIC.  

But, there is also a lot of gross exaggeration in their efforts to paint a Black face on Corona Virus, like how they keep trotting out invoking the words "Black people", "African Americans" when nearly no Black people have been tested AT ALL for the Corona Virus, because for one, they don't have any or enough tests to begin, let alone have tested THAT many Black people.

 

 

We're all going to live until we die. That's what life is all about. This pandemic shit has gotten out of hand, that's what's all over the news everywhere. Either that, or Kim Jong Un and the Orange Bimbo. I'll look at Gov. Cuomo all day, every day rather than deal with this COVID-19 stuff. If we can read all these comments, we're alive and that's  good thing. Someone's dying as i type; that's not good at all. Pandemic, pandemic, pandemic; Jesus Christ already!!!!!!!
