The daughter weeps uncontrollably as she struggles with not having her mom by her side.

All the mother could do was encourage her by saying she was fighting monsters and would be back home as soon as the fight was over.

"Mommy is fighting monsters, I'll be back home once the virus is beaten, I'll come back to be your company after we win," Lui told her sobbing daughter.

The two gave each other air hugs as they are not permitted to come into contact with anyone.
