WUHAN, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- Feng Feng, who works in community outreach in Huiminyuan, Wuhan, China, has found a novel way to deliver residents' prescriptions.
Since the lockdown of the city, a safety measure to contain the spread of COVID-19, people like Feng have helped collect prescriptions and other medicines for residents of the city.

On Monday, he arrived at the pharmacy at 5 a.m., accompanied by two of his colleagues. It took almost 12 hours for the medicines to be dispensed into around 100 bags -- but the box he had brought to carry them was far too small. It dawned on him that he had a herculean task ahead of him.

Then, an idea struck him -- he may only have two hands, but he had a lot of body. The creative courier hung the bag handles on two pieces of string and hung the bags on his body.
"This," he said, "was a much more convenient way to deliver." ■
