A Chinese medical team successfully carried out the world's first double-lung transplant on Feb. 29 for a patient who was infected with the COVID-19 virus, which is of great significance in reducing critical cases. Chen Jingyu, a well-known expert in the lung transplant field and deputy head of the Wuxi People's Hospital, performed the five-hour operation with his team in East China's Jiangsu Province. The COVID-19 patient has been awake since the surgery was finished, the patient's vital signs are stable, and the transplanted lungs function well, Chen told the Global Times on March 1.
