China’s President Xi Jinping’s pledge to continue to share good practices and assist countries affected by Covid-19 has won applause across the globe.
“China will be more than ready to share our good practices, conduct joint research and development of drugs and vaccines, and provide assistance where we can to countries hit by the growing outbreak,” said Xi in a speech at the Extraordinary G20 Leaders’ Summit on Thursday.
China has generously shared its experience, technical and medical equipment and personnel with many countries to help them combat Covid-19, said Gerishon Ikiara, an economics lecturer at the University of Nairobi.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recognised the role China has been playing in the ongoing war against the coronavirus, Ikiara noted.
China is doing a good job and being responsible by offering useful reference and providing medical support to other countries, and they has achieved a great deal in containing the epidemic at home. It’s definitely a worth learning experience, said Abdulaziz Alshaabani, Saudi journalist and researcher on China.
Awad Baqwer, former chairman of the Omani Journalists Association said, “China has always been keen to provide information and details in fighting Covid-19 with the WHO, a practice praised by the organisation on many occasions.”
China has shared information and experience, and sent medical teams and aid to many countries which includes Malaysia.
A facebook post from Ministry of Health (MOH) shared that the Chinese government today has given a donation of equipment to the Malaysian government in an effort to deal with Covid-19 infections.
