China will categorically prevent the outbreak of the Coronavirus again, as the country faces increasing pressure due to incidence of infection, Chinese state television said Friday, quoting a high-level meeting chaired by President Xi Jinping.
He added that China will improve its capabilities in dealing with major public health emergencies.
Earlier Friday, China confirmed that it supported the establishment of a WHO-led committee to review the world’s response to the Covid-19 epidemic, after it faced pressure from several parties to allow an international investigation into the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Shuning told reporters that the review process should take place “in an open, transparent and inclusive manner” and “in a timely manner after the end of the epidemic,” and under the supervision of WHO Director-General Tidros Adanum Gebresos.
On Thursday, China condemned the United States’ statements about the new Corona virus and described it as “false”, after criticism by US President Donald Trump to Beijing, saying that it should have stopped the Covid-19 epidemic caused by the Corona virus.
