Health workers | China's hazmat-clad Covid health workers experience record heat waves.

One health worker added, "Every day when I finally get off work, the only thing I want to do is take a shower and fall asleep."


SINGAPORE — This summer broke numerous heat records throughout the world.


Health workers in China have been severely affected, having to labor through excruciating heat waves while being covered from head to toe in protective gear as they continue to test the general population for Covid-19 amid an outbreak that seems to never end.


The army of employees tasked with enforcing China's zero-Covid policy has spent a significant portion of this year toiling in temperatures of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or more while donning hazmat suits popularly known as the "Big White."

Joshua Liu, a health professional from Shanghai, told NBC News over the phone last month that "the interior condition is airtight." We are not allowed to eat, drink, or use the restroom while the suit is on.


According to Liu, who assisted medical professionals in gathering samples for Covid tests and registering resident information, workers are "drenched in sweat" and their "fingers and palms are wrinkled" when they remove them.


He added, "I can feel my skin breathing and sweating." When I finally finish work each day, all I want to do is take a shower and go to bed.
