Loving Henan Warms People’s Heart, 572 Stranded Travelers Returning Home
True friendship stands out in difficult times. On February 9, the last traveler from the NCP-stricken area was successfully removed from medical observation and left Zhengzhou Airport Economy Zone for home. Up to now, the 572 travelers, who were under medical observation at Zhengzhou Airport Economy Zone, have already been on their way home.
Where my heart settles, where my home is. With professional medical observation and careful daily service at Zhengzhou Airport Economy Zone, the travelers here were deeply moved.

“During the emergency period, my family and I owe you all a handshake and a hug. When the epidemic is over, you are the first people we want to see.” South African Chinese Ye Xianming specially wrote Zhengzhou Aviation Port Area a letter to express his gratitude.
Mr. Ye is a senior lecturer at Department of Electrical Engineering of Pretoria University, South Africa. He scheduled to fly to South Africa with his family from Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport on January 25. Since Ye Xianming and his family had been to Wuhan before, they were isolated for further medical observation for 14 days at Zhengzhou Aviation Port Area.
“My family was depressed because of the little kids and supplies shortage.” Ye Xianming said, during the harsh times, the staff at Zhengzhou Aviation Port Area provided meticulous help for his family, taking care of the two kids, purchasing daily supplies, checking temperature for them three times a day and making a detailed record, and arranging special staff to collect garbage every day, etc.
The loving Henan warms each traveler.
“Zhengzhou is really ‘warm-hearted’. If there is a short of supplies, just tell the staff and they will bring what you need to you with patience and care.” Chen Chen from Wuhan said, “It was my first visit to Zhengzhou. During the special period, I could touch the great love and enthusiasm of Henan province. I love this city.”
“We thought that we would be despised in a strange place, but the fact is that we were welcomed with hospitality and patience…” Ouyang Qi and his wife from Wuhan, said gratefully, “Although we were in a strange place, we were treated warmly.”
Numerous thank-you letters and videos from afar express a same heartfelt wish: Thanks for Henan’s great love and passion, and give a thumbs-up to Zhengzhou.
