The photo seems to have been shared by a medical colleague on WeChat Moments, a feature on the app which functions as a feed to share personal accounts and opinions.

This literally warms my heart to see, especially amid news of shady practices and inappropriate conduct among Chinese doctors," commented a WeChat user on the app. As ever in China, it feeds into questions about Chinese hospital procedure with some asking why the hospital relied on the doctor’s own body heat, rather than using a more professional device to warm up the blood.
