Jing Bing's office was at the front building of the hospital which was white. From his office he could see the street along the canal that was covered by coconut trees. The canal in the western part of the city was crowded with boats transporting goods for Chinese traders who lived there. The high coconuts trees above the Hospital was waving, overwritten by the sea breeze, that according to the Dutch, brought the disease either fever or abdominal pain resulting in death.
