More than 400 restaurants from over 60 different hot pot brands in Sichuan gave a positive review of the suggestion. Many of them are actively responding to the request as they prepare to provide free hot pot to the medical workers when they return home.
The Hot Pot Association of Sichuan said the medical workers would only need to bring their relevant work certificates to the restaurants to receive the free hot pot.
“We will enjoy a dinner party together after the epidemic so that we will know how our comrades-in-arms look like,” a volunteer said, adding that they have never seen each others’ faces as they all wear protective gear while working.

As of Feb. 20, medical workers have received free tickets to 1,067 scenic locations. In Hubei, all Class-A tourist sites will provide free limitless passes for the medical teams for five years once the pandemic is over.
