For the millions ‘trapped’ in the city of Wuhan and other parts of China, life has definitely taken on a feeling of impris0nment.
Daughters become separated from their mothers, brothers moved away from their sisters and in this case a father had no other choice but look at his son from a glass window.
Becoming one of the unlucky nine million barricaded from leaving the city, one toddler became yet another target of the Wuhan virus, admitted in for quarantine.
The video shows the father mustering all his strength as he looks on his innocent son on isolation.
His defense eventually falls out when the young one asked his dad of a hug in a form of gesture.
The father burst into tears upon witnessing the sight. As much as he wanted to, he had no other choice.
He turns his back and wipe his tears away as his son showed a pondering look why he cannot be with his dad.
The video which has garnered 53.2k retweets witnessed fellow netizens sharing their thoughts on it.
One netizen mentioned that he was willing to offer his life with the baby if he was the father.
Surely, we can only imagine what the father must be going through right now.
With the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the Wuhan Coronavirus as a global emergency, the situation is indeed dire not only for Chinese nationals but also for the global population.

As her daughter laid on the ground wrapped in a blanket. She asked the official to even leave her behind just for her daughter to pass through.
“Please, take my daughter. I don’t need to go past. Just let my daughter go past.”
