COVID-19 brought the city's public transportation to a standstill. Wuhu, Anhui Province, the location of Chery's headquarters, ceased operations of all cruise taxis in the urban area since January 31, and significantly reduced its bus lines.
The transportation department of Wuhu urgently set up a pioneer emergency service fleet composed of 55 volunteers. All of them are CPC members. They provided free services for the commuting of medical staffs, patient travels, emergency prevention and control tasks, etc.
Nearly one-third of the members came from Chery Rental Vehicle Company, a subsidiary of Chery Holding Group. They are also the main members of the "Chery Rental Vehicle Pioneer Fleet". In just over 20 days, they rushed between hospitals and extremely poor groups. They provided more than 400 volunteer services for medical staffs, the elderly, the weak, the sick, and pregnant women on the front line, and delivered more than 20 emergency medical equipment. They were the “protector” of life channels in the city.
Many recipients of the help from the pioneer fleet hoped to, out of gratitude, pay them in forms of red packets or fuel fees, with a total of nearly 4,000 yuan. All of them were politely declined by the fleet members. In order to support the pioneer fleet to continue to fight in the front line of anti-epidemic, some recipients tried every means to send instant noodles, anti-epidemic gloves, anti-infection spray. Even the son of one elderly recipient, who was in as far away as Tianjin, bought car pumps for the fleet to facilitate their overtime work and driving out. All these warmed the volunteers of the pioneer fleet, strengthening their confidence in the victory of the fight against the epidemic.
