Beijing-based cartoonist and contemporary artist Yan Cong describes his daily life during the quarantine. These comics date back to January 29, 2020, less than a week after the Wuhan lockdown began, when many across the country were cancelling their Lunar New Year plans in order to avoid spreading the virus.
During the period he describes, Yan Cong's wife was practicing self-isolation for fear that she had contracted COVID-19. She's now doing well.
