WHO Hailed China for Its Notable Results in Fighting COVID-19
2020/02/25

A press conference of the China-WHO joint expert team was held in Beijing on Feb. 24, 2020. Bruce Aylward, head of the WHO expert team and senior advisory to the Secretary General of WHO, stated at the conference that faced with the unknown pathogen, China has taken ambitious, flexible and bold efforts in responding to the epidemic. He said that China's unprecedented public health responses to the COVID-19 outbreak have yielded notable results in blocking human-to-human transmission of the virus, preventing or at least delaying hundreds of thousands of cases, and that China has also played a critical role in protecting the international community, buying precious time for countries to adopt active prevention and control measures and providing them with worthwhile experience. He noted that China is taking prudent, phased and orderly steps to gradually restore order in social, economic, education and healthcare sectors, and that other countries should swiftly reassess the measures taken toward China. Bruce stressed that the Chinese people have sacrificed and gone through a lot in responding to the epidemic, and that the people of Wuhan are courageous and persistent in dealing with this grave challenge, for which the world should be indebted to. He expressed his wish to thank the people of Wuhan on behalf of the all people in the world after the end of the epidemic.
