BUFFALO, N.Y. — Keep going China. Keep going Wuhan — are just some of the well wishes being sent across the globe to China. University at Buffalo graduate student Qinghua Chen is putting together a short video of encouragement for her friends, relatives, and the residents of China who are currently fighting the coronavirus.

"I would like to show them that I, including students at UB, and teachers at UB are thinking about them," Chen said.

So, for the past week, Chen has been connecting with local Chinese students, residents, and children to bring her vision to life.

"When my participants talked to the camera I felt so moved and touched," Chen said.

The video will be distributed online and Chen hopes it reaches thousands effected by the virus.
