Bahargul Toleheng says she will revisit Wuhan when the epidemic passes after a video went viral on the Internet, showing her dancing to cheer up patients at a mobile cabin hospital in Wuhan city of central China's Hubei province, the former epicenter of the COVID-19 disease.

Toleheng , deputy director of the Party and Government Office of the No.2 People's Hospital of Xinjiang located in Urumqi, capital of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, has returned to her hometown, currently under quarantine for medical observation, after the aid work in Wuhan ended.

Dancing to Black Walking Horse, Toleheng’s performance at the hospital in Wuhan shows that Chinese medical staff not only treat patients but also relieve their stress and cheer them up through music and dance.

"We are a family," Toleheng often cited this sentence during her battle against the epidemic in Wuhan. After coming back to Xinjiang, she still sings for the patients in the doctor-patient communication group of WeChat, a social media platform in China, while chatting about the news in Wuhan and Xinjiang.

During the quarantine period she has received many gifts, such as wash bags, cosmetics, and eye protectors.

Toleheng recalled that she met many friends in Wuhan and was moved by their stories, "I'm going to write them all down. When I have time, I will definitely revisit Wuhan to see my friends. On the one hand, I want to look at their faces after the masks can be taken off; on the other hand, I would like to see the beautiful scenery in Wuhan."

"The quarantine period is a good time for me to practice my dancing. When I revisit Wuhan in the future as I wish, I will definitely perform a complete Xinjiang dancing for my friends there." Toleheng added.
