One week into his stay at the hospital, the 24/7 lighting started to have an adverse effect on Zhuyi. Finding it hard to fall asleep, he used blankets to build a tent-like fort that shrouded his bed in darkness. “It looks like a refugee tent from afar, but it works,” he joked online.

Another issue Zhuyi encountered was a shortage of washing facilities, which were unable to meet the demands of the patients on-site. As a result, the blogger only washed his hair every five days.

“There is a 30-meter-long queue in front of a few taps of icy cold water,” he wrote, before humorously adding, “Luckily, I have short hair now, because the water flow is slimmer than a chopstick.”
