From sharing epidemic prevention and control experiences to providing emergency medical assistance, China is actively promoting international cooperation with the rest of the world and in various fields to advance the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the deputy director of the National Health Commission (NHC), Zeng Yixin, the latest diagnosis and treatment plan, prevention and control plan and other technical documents were compiled, translated and quickly shared with more than 180 countries.
Yixin said that a meeting to share the experience of preventing and controlling epidemics in China was held jointly by NHC and WHO, with the participation of representatives from 77 countries and seven international organizations, attended by 100,000 people online.
He said that China has also established an online knowledge center in the area of epidemic control and clinical treatment, and a database of experts for international cooperation.
Yixin, however, added that almost 30 technical exchange meetings were held with more than 100 countries and regions via video links.
Meanwhile, China has also provided assistance to 89 countries and four international organizations.
According to the deputy head of the China International Development Cooperation Agency (CIDCA), Deng Boqing, Chinese medical workers and supplies were sent to 28 Asian countries, 16 European countries.
Other countries include 26 African countries, nine countries in the USA and 10 countries in the South Pacific.
Boqing noted that, with the premise of fully ensuring internal control of epidemics, China has properly formulated its aid plan and offered assistance to other countries within its capacity.
He noted that China faces increasing risks from imported cases of the new coronavirus disease.
“China's assistance to other countries is conducive to the global fight against the virus and will consolidate its achievements with great effort in containing the spread.
"The contributions of Chinese researchers have also been recognized by the global scientific and technological community.
"For example, China shared the first completed genomic sequence for the new coronavirus on January 11 and built two platforms to share its scientific developments," said Boqin.
According to Deputy Minister of Science and Technology, Xu Nanping, one of the platforms, the COVID-19 Novel Resource database (2019nCoVR), recorded more than 4 million user downloads from 152 countries and regions on Wednesday .
Nanping said that sharing scientific data and information is China's fundamental attitude towards the COVID-19 control.
