You go ahead after we arrive I’ll go get things for us Yeah, you go ahead, and I’ll park Good luck! Try your best with the vegetable So many people lining up There’s a strong smell of disinfectant fluid These are what I “fought” for What vegetable is that I don’t know Sure, let’s have it first There’s plenty of meat actually They just don’t have the time to put them on shelves I’m home I got many fresh fruits and vegetable It should be enough for these days The latest news came after I got home Only those who are informed through SMS will be prohibited on the road If you don’t receive the message, then you’re allowed There’s sun today The weather is so nice making me want to go out Let’s just go throw the trash There’s the disinfectant fluid smell in the elevator It seems the property management staff have sterilized the elevators today None of the restaurants on the street is open today It is kind of a food street But it seems that none of them is open for business But today I am in a good humor because there’s sun It feels like there’s hope with the sun shining Workday for me today My shift is 08:00 to 14:00 A trash can for used masks has been place in my workplace There is where I work the broadcast building of Hubei Media Group I think there’s temperature check again Temperature check Here we are Chutian Music Radio FM105.8 I take the morning shift I am the first host today The studio has prepared masks for hosts I’m putting one on the microphone as well Let me show you around our studio Good chance for an introduction These two are the broadcasting systems Including the music and the advertisements, all contents are automatically broadcasted here This is what I will broadcast later This one is for WeChat interaction with the audience This is for phone calls from the audience I don’t think there will be any today It’s 7:52 right now The broadcast starts at eight o’clock I have to get ready now Li Xiaolei
