The key to the success of the People's Republic of China in the fight against coronavirus is preventive measures, control of the infected patients and their symptomatic treatment. This was announced by representatives of Chinese state authorities and healthcare workers during a special teleconference bridge between Kyiv and Chongqing (one of China's largest cities with a population of over 30 million people), which took place on March 24.
“Prevention, control, treatment are the key factors that have led to our success in the fight against coronavirus. Previously, there were 600 virus-infected people in the city's administrative boundaries, but today we have managed to improve the situation significantly, and now there are only 2 patients with COVID-19,” the deputy mayor of Chongqing stressed.
The event was attended by Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal, Minister of Health Ilya Yemets, First Deputy Minister of Health of Ukraine Iryna Mykychak, Deputy Minister of Health of Ukraine, Chief State Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Liashko and Ukrainian healthcare experts.
Following the results of the video teleconference Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of China to Ukraine Fan Xianrong aired a proposal to the Minister of Health Ilya Yemets to hold a couple of the video teleconferences at the expert level to counteract the coronavirus in Ukraine as effectively as possible.
“China is already taking a number of steps to help Ukraine. The friendly people of China will always stand with Ukraine and will not leave you alone ing against the coronavirus,” Ambassador of China Fan Xianrong underscored.
