    Incredible footage reportedly showing a sweat-soaked medical frontliner in China has become widely shared on social media. 


    Sacrifice: In the viral clip, a female health worker in Xinjiang can be seen removing her protective suit, unleashing an unbelievable amount of sweat on the ground.

    • The video was filmed as the medical worker was taking a break from her shift on Saturday at a hospital in Urumqi, according to MailOnline.
    • Since mid-July over 500 people have been infected by the novel coronavirus in Xinjiang.
    • In response to the health crisis, local authorities imposed strict measures, carrying out mass testing on the local population, reported the BBC.

    • On August 8, the day the video was shot, the temperature in the area was around 84.2 degrees Fahrenheit.
