URUMQI, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Ekebar Emet, a 21-year-old junior student, comes from Bachu County of Xinjiang. He went to the Dongcaiyuan Community in Tianshan District of Urumqi City for a one-year internship on June 3.

The sudden COVID-19 resurgence in Xinjiang immediately transformed Ekebar from an intern to a volunteer at the frontline of epidemic prevention and control.

Ekebar publicized epidemic prevention measures to 78 households every day. In order to prevent cross-infection, the daily materials needed by residents were all delivered by Ekebar.

In order to do these jobs well, Ekebar has set up a special group on social media WeChat. Residents in the community could send their needs in the group every day. With about 100 orders daily, Ekebar always found ways to complete them.

"I believe the epidemic will pass soon. And I also feel that the epidemic has made the residents more united, and everyone has gradually understood that only by solidarity can we overcome the epidemic." He said.
