Because of the whole night’s treatment, Fang Qiu asked the show’s crew to give the numbers of the queue to the patients in advance. Those who lined up in the back could go home. It was useless to wait outside the clinic because they were not able to see the doctor tonight.
Many patients went home to rest for the night, and then came back to continue lining up the next day.
Everyone had a good night’s sleep.
Only Fang Qiu was still seeing the patients.
The PD had stayed with Fang Qiu until midnight and then he was so tired and sleepy that he went to sleep for a few hours. When he woke up and saw that Fang Qiu was still consulting, he became a little worried.
“Director, we can’t go on like this.”
He found Director Li Huawen who had just woken up and said, “Look, he’s only eaten two steamed buns and a bottle of mineral water for the entire day. He hasn’t even closed his eyes to rest yet. If this continues, he won’t be able to hold on any longer.”
“Yeah…” Gazing at Fang Qiu, Director Li Huawen felt distressed and admired him at the same time.
He hadn’t expected that either.
Fang Qiu had been seeing patients for 24 hours in a row. This kind of perseverance was not something an ordinary person would have.
The PD suggested, “Director, why don’t you ask him to rest for a while?”
“All right.” Li Huawen nodded, went straight to the clinic table, and said, “Okay, you’ve been consulting for a day and a night. You should have a rest. Otherwise, the netizens will accuse us of asking you to slave.”
Fang Qiu smiled and asked, “How many people are there left?”
Fang Qiu had been busy seeing patients for the whole day. He didn’t have time to check how many people he had seen.
“Alas.” Director Li Huawen looked at the long line outside the door and sighed bitterly. “Three hundred people.”
“What?” Fang Qiu was stunned.
He had been consulting for 24 hours, how come the number of the patients didn’t reduce at all?
Li Huawen explained, “Yesterday, you’ve finished seeing 300 patients who were lining up. Now, these 300 people who are lining up were all coming from the surrounding countryside yesterday. The staff had selected again. If they didn’t screen all these people, the patients in line would exceed 500.”
Fang Qiu said, “In this case, let’s continue.”
“No way.” The PD instantly cut in, “I know you’re worried about the patients and want to try your best to see more patients, but if you keep doing like this, it would be irresponsible for you to treat the patients. A long-lasting work will wear you out, and your brain will also be tired. What if you give the wrong prescription if you keep going on like this?”
Upon hearing that, Fang Qiu was lost in thought.
Of course, as for him, it didn’t matter even if he had been seeing patients for seven consecutive days, let alone seeing patients for 24 hours in a row. After all, he was a guru.
However, he knew he could do it, but it didn’t mean that everyone thought he could.
After all, they were recording a show. In any case, they must show the professional attainment of Chinese Medicine doctors. They had to be responsible for patients.
“Well, then let’s take a break for an hour.”
Fang Qiu thought for a moment and said with a nod, “We’ll continue an hour later.”
The director asked the staff to bring over some food.
Fang Qiu ate some food, then directly laid his head down on the consultation table and fell asleep.
As Fang Qiu was taking a rest, no one dared to make a sound in the clinic.
Whether it was the staff or the patients who were queuing, they were all very cooperative.
Everyone also knew how hard Fang Qiu had worked and felt distressed for him. He had been treating patients for 24 hours. How could he not have a good rest?
Since Fang Qiu fell asleep, the patients in the queue also left.
Looking at Fang Qiu sleeping soundly, the PD whispered in the director’s ear, “Look how tired he is. Maybe we shouldn’t wake him up after an hour. Let him sleep for a while and get a good rest.”
“Yeah. That’s a good idea.” Director Li Huawen nodded in agreement.
The two also informed the on-site staff that they must not disturb Fang Qiu.
However, an hour later, Fang Qiu woke up on time.
There was no alarm clock or even noise. How could Fang Qiu wake up without anyone calling him in an hour?
How was this possible?
The people of the show were all dumbfounded. They even suspected that Fang Qiu had not slept at all and just closed his eyes to rest. But when Fang Qiu was taking a rest, they obviously heard slight snores of him.
Everyone looked at Fang Qiu in surprise.
Fang Qiu had just woken up and then stood up, went straight to the backyard, and washed his face with cold water, which made him feel fresh immediately. Then he returned to the clinic. While sitting down at the consultation desk, he opened his mouth. “Let’s continue.”
As they saw this, no one dared to persuade him anymore, so they could only continue.
After that, several hours passed. Time passed quickly.
Early the next morning, Luo Jie, who was dragging his tired body to get up to see patients, asked his PD, “How’s Fang Qiu doing?”
His PD replied, “I heard that Fang Qiu only rested for one hour at 3 p.m. yesterday and continued to see patients again at four o’clock in the afternoon. He has been treating patients all the time, so he doesn’t stop until now.”
“What?” Luo Jie couldn’t believe it and said, “Is this guy crazy?”
When other contestants heard the news, their reactions were the same as Luo Jie’s. They were all dumbfounded.
“According to statistics, Fang Qiu has seen 600 patients in 40 hours.”
When they heard that from their PDs, the nine contestants were completely stunned.
Everyone knew that the energy of a person was limited. Being able to take advantage of his limited energy to treat 100 patients in a short period of time would be extremely strong and powerful.
Even among the nine of them, the most powerful one had only seen 130 patients so far.
Besides, after seeing these patients, they were all exhausted.
But Fang Qiu actually had seen 600 people.
This figure was too intimidating.
The nine people were all shocked, including Jiang Miaoyu.
Of course, while they were shocked, there were a few who were skeptical.
“Fang Qiu has been seeing patients for 40 hours in a row and has seen 600 people. Can he guarantee the treating effect?”
Chen Ziju questioned, “We are doctors of Chinese Medicine. We should make sure we can cure the patients. We can’t just focus on the speed!”
The PD replied, “I don’t know about that.”
Luo Jie smiled wryly. “This guy has really gone all out in order to be the champion.”
From the current situation, he was no match for Fang Qiu in terms of great perseverance, but he also suspected whether Fang Qiu could really guarantee the treating effects of the patients since he had seen so many patients.
After all, doctors of Chinese Medicine needed to diagnose very carefully. When they were tired, it was difficult for them to perform all their strength.
They wondered whether Fang Qiu really knew the rules of the ninth episode set by the show or he might have heard some rumors. Otherwise, why would he work so hard?
“600 people?” Jiang Miaoyu looked at her PD in shock and asked, “Why are there so many patients?”
“I don’t know either.” Her PD shook his head. “It seems to be a lot more patients waiting in line over there.”
Upon hearing that, Jiang Miaoyu knitted her brows tightly. She became more worried about Fang Qiu.
However, she knew Fang Qiu’s temperament.
If there were not so many patients, Fang Qiu was not the kind of person who would always sit there and wait for patients. That was to say, the reason why Fang Qiu kept seeing patients for 40 hours and seeing 600 patients in a row was that there were too many people looking for him. He must want to see all the patients in a limited time, so he tried so hard.
Thinking of this, Jiang Miaoyu couldn’t help clenching her fists and gritting her teeth.
“Let’s start.” Jiang Miaoyu said to her PD. Then she immediately put all her heart and soul into the consultation.
As a doctor of Chinese Medicine, Fang Qiu could do that. But why couldn’t she? Since she couldn’t contact and persuade Fang Qiu, the only thing she could do was to support Fang Qiu with her own actions!
In Qimen Town, Director Li Huawen and Fang Qiu’s PD saw patients being cured one after another, as well as those patients coming to him. They looked at each other and smiled bitterly.
Few people in the show knew the rules of the ninth episode.
Even many staff didn’t know it.
Even in the crew, the rules for the ninth episode were top secret because the results of the ninth episode would be related to the champion.
However, this top-secret rule was not that the more patients you saw, the better it was. On the contrary, it was very likely that the more patients you saw, the more unfavorable it was.
Director Li Huawen and Fang Qiu’s PD were very helpless, but they couldn’t tell him. They could only watch this brilliant Chinese Medicine doctor, who was doing so well for the patients, getting farther and farther away from the champion of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor.
The more they looked at him, the more bitter they felt.
There was a bitter smile on both of their faces, which never faded.
Soon, it was twelve o’clock in the afternoon.
Fang Qiu had been seeing patients for 44 hours in a row.
Under the persuasion of the director and his PD, Fang Qiu took another hour’s rest.
An hour later, he continued to see patients!
There were still patients coming from so many places.
Fang Qiu, who kept treating patients, also gradually entered into a state of selflessness. He paid no attention to the outside world and devoted himself to treating patients.
This state lasted until 6 o’clock the next afternoon.
During this time, Fang Qiu didn’t rest again.
In other words, Fang Qiu saw patients for 75 consecutive hours, during which he only rested for two hours.
Fortunately, the 75 hours were not in vain.
Fang Qiu finished seeing all the patients.
In the end, after the staff completed the calculation of statistics, they found that Fang Qiu actually saw a total of 1050 patients.
When they saw the data, all the people in the show were shocked by this figure.
The wry smile on Director Li Huawen’s face grew deeper.
Fang Qiu saw off the last patient.
“Phew…” Fang Qiu stood up and stretched himself. While stretching his limbs and waist, he walked out of the clinic and looked up at the sunset in the sky.
With just a glance, there was a sudden sound in Fang Qiu’s mind.
As soon as the sound appeared, Fang Qiu immediately chuckled.
“Did I just make a breakthrough in mental power?” A thought flashed through his mind.
Fang Qiu channeled his internal Qi directly, used the method of Divine Consciousness, and immediately spread out his mental power.
As he made this move, the range his Divine Consciousness could detect directly increased from five kilometers to ten kilometers, which was a double!
In the past, Fang Qiu could detect the surrounding area within 10 kilometers with himself as the center, and now he could probe 20 kilometers!
This increase in strength was so awesome.
“This is really a surprise.”
With a smile, Fang Qiu secretly exclaimed to himself, “Speaking of which, can it be regarded as one good turn deserves another?”
“Let’s go into the room first.” His PD stepped forward and said, “If you stay here a little longer, there may be another patient.”
“I’ll treat them if they come.” Fang Qiu answered with a smile, “We don’t have to close the door until ten o’clock in the evening. It’s okay for me to spend more time, but we can’t let the patients wait for another day.”
After that, Fang Qiu followed the director and walked into the backyard, had a meal, and rested.
