A primary school student in Nanchang, East China's Jiangxi Province drew a health QR code himself and it has successfully passed the smart phone scanning when he took the hand-painted code to receive COVID-19 nucleic acid testing. 

The 12-year-old boy surnamed Du decided to draw the code with a black gel pen on the paper after he went for COVID-19 test and were told by a staffer that his previous printed one was worn out and could not be recognized by a scanner anymore. 

Du's father said he wanted to print a new one for Du, but Du insisted to have a try. "He has learned painting for three years and it took him two hours to count and blacken the grids according to the digital version of the health QR code," the father said.

Du then took his hand-painted health code to COVID-19 nucleic acid testing places and was very excited when his right message came out on the phone screen after scanning the code, which proved his drawing was a success.
