Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) and her husband, Wang Feng (汪峰), welcomed the New Year with the birth of their son earlier in January. Choosing again to give birth in California as she did so in 2015 for her first child, Ziyi is currently still resting in the United States due to her one-month postpartum confinement period. The 40-year-old actress is very concerned about the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, especially after China decided to lockdown the city.
To spread hygienic awareness, Ziyi posted a short video clip online that emphasized the importance of washing your hands thoroughly. She further thanked medical staff on their hard work and efforts, writing, “I salute those medical professionals and researchers working on the front line. We must do our part and start making improvements also. We must work hard together. The earlier we beat this virus, the earlier we will win this battle! Let’s work hard and add oil together!”
Wang Feng also posted in support of efforts to control the outbreak. As opposed to his wife’s method of strategic actions to stay healthy and promote hygiene, Wang Feng instead chose a few songs to motivate his followers, including the song “Heal the World” by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, as well as one of Wang Feng’s own songs, “Forever”.
He wrote, “The sudden onset of pneumonia, a new type of coronavirus infection like SARS, is spreading. The spread of his new coronavirus and its impact and harm on human lives has once again made every Chinese person worried. At this moment, there seems to be nothing more important than facing this with courage and overcoming this disaster together. These past two days, I searched through a lot of songs that have given people deep comfort and great courage during times of crisis. I have compiled a few songs that have spoken to me the most and wanted to share them with everyone in the face of this disaster.”
