I didn’t wear a mask all the way when changing trains in Wuhan

There is no direct high-speed rail from Beijing to Xiantao. Gu Zihao bought a transit train from Hankou Railway Station.ticket.

In early January, a lot of news related to the epidemic spread. However, according to the expert group's statement at the time, the epidemic was preventable and controllable. Although he felt a little uneasy, Gu Zihao, like most people, did not take protective measures. On the way back to Xiantao from Beijing, Gu Zihao didn’t wear a mask. “I observed along the way and almost no one wore a mask.”

While waiting for the transfer at Hankou Railway Station, Gu Zihao went to the waiting room to eat a bowl of heat. Dry noodles. The familiar taste of hometown temporarily dilutes Gu Zihao's hidden worries about the epidemic. Since he was 11 years old, he went to Beijing to learn chess. Gu Zihao can only go back to his hometown every Spring Festival.

On the first few days when I returned to Xiantao, my relatives and friends in my hometown were busy for the Spring Festival. On January 20, the calm pace of life was disrupted. On that day, Academician Zhong Nanshan confirmed at a press conference that there was human-to-human transmission of the new crown pneumonia, and Gu Zihao, who had just returned home for a week, suddenly became nervous.

"On January 23, when Wuhan was closed, I hadn't been back for 14 days, so I was a little nervous." The anxiety continued until the third day of the New Year, which was the 14th day when Gu Zihao returned home. After confirming that his body was in good health, he finally breathed a sigh of relief, “I was really scared in retrospect, especially when I ate at the station.” As a professional chess player, Gu Zihao’s Spring Festival The holidays are not long. According to the original plan, he will stay in Xiantao's hometown until the end of January, and go to the United States to participate in a Go exchange event on February 1.

In the past few days when I returned to Xiantao, Gu Zihao lived with his mother at his uncle's house. The day after Wuhan's lockdown, Xiantao, known as the back garden of Wuhan, announced the lockdown, and Gu Zihao's long life in isolation began.

B Isolation period

At home for 3 months without leaving the gate of the community

"Since January 21, I have not been out of the house for 70 days. It was not until April 1 that I went downstairs because of the delivery.

This time it’s a long vacation for myself to spend time with my family.” Gu Zihao said that at least relatives and friends in his hometown will take care of each other. If he is left alone in Beijing , May be more nervous.

Compared with Wuhan and most other cities in Hubei, Xiantao's epidemic prevention and control is relatively better. As the country’s largest non-woven fabric production base, the demand for masks in Xiantao City can still supplyDeserve it. According to the latest report of the epidemic situation in Hubei Province on April 20, a total of 575 confirmed cases have been confirmed in Xiantao City.

During the isolation period, Gu Zihao's uncle and aunt would buy some vegetables when they went out to work, and their daily life was not affected too much. "For the blessing of my uncle and aunt in life, they will go out to buy some necessities, so I don't have to go out." Gu Zihao said.

During the quarantine at home, Gu Zihao's life was unusually regular, during which he had an unforgettable birthday. When there is no game, Gu Zihao wakes up in the morning to read books and do sports, and in the afternoon he will pay attention to some Go games. During that time, although the Chinese Go Association suspended all games, the games between Japan and South Korea did not stop. In the evening, it was Gu Zihao's training time. Looking for an opponent to play chess, and then resume the game, three or four hours passed.

Four of the 24 participating chess players were not in Beijing, including Gu Zihao 9duan and Xie Erhao 9duan who were stranded in Hubei. They all played under camera surveillance.

Gu Zihao said that online competitions existThere is a certain possibility of cheating. This is what everyone is worried about. "We are both professional chess players and members of the national team. These two points determine that we cannot cheat."

According to the requirements of the Chinese Go Association, four players outside Beijing must be monitored in all directions during the game. Judging from the game video, Gu Zihao's hair has grown a lot. He said that he hasn't had a haircut in 4 months.

Of course, the game time is very long, you must go to the bathroom. There are ways to cheat. But we are all professional chess players, and we still need professional ethics.
