Mainland China has been affected by the recent heat wave and increasingly higher temperatures. On July 11, a male news presenter in Suzhou suddenly had a nosebleed while broadcasting the evening news. According to Chinese media Sohu, after the broadcast, the news anchor explained that his body temperature had risen too high due to the scorching weather, causing his nose to bleed.

video of the event was spread by netizens, showing when he reached the part: “The weather is hot in the summer, there is a situation of children being burned … the situation is very dangerous,” his right nostril was bleeding profusely. He sensed something was wrong and paused but kept a calm mind to read the entire news until the end.

After that, the presenter went to the hospital for a checkup; Suzhou TV said that the recent hot weather had affected his health.

Mainland netizens were abuzz about this incident, and Vision Times compiled several comments such as: “Don’t promote this peculiarity as being professional? What if the presenter felt very uncomfortable but persisted in reporting? What if he did not get medical treatment in time? Indeed, it is not a matter of professional or not, but a matter of health. This kind of sick propaganda is horrible!”

“He can wipe it off with a tissue. It’s sickening to watch live broadcasts that serious.”

Sohu also commented, “Besides our admiration for the presenter, we couldn’t help but wonder why the staff at the time couldn’t be flexible about this.”

“The professional quality of the presenter can help with the timely handling of the unexpected, but the director can switch multiple scenes and let the host deal with the problem quickly.”

This incident also partly reflects the hot weather in China, which causes adverse reactions to the body, such as nosebleeds.
