|Wang Yi: China Provides Experience for Global Response and Boosts Confidence in Defeating the Virus|
State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended the BRICS Foreign Ministers' Extraordinary Conference on COVID-19 on April 28 in Beijing.
Wang Yi noted, under the personal leadership and direction of President Xi Jinping, the Chinese government and people have fought a people's war against COVID-19. We have acted according to the principle of shoring up confidence, strengthening unity, ensuring science-based control and taking targeted measures. We have all along been open and transparent, and put people's health and safety front and center. We reported the infected cases and shared the genetic sequencing of the virus at the earliest possible time. Under the requirement of early detection, reporting, quarantine and treatment, we concentrated the best human and material resources on treating patients with severe conditions. With extraordinary efforts and sacrifices, we stemmed the spread of the virus at home, and curbed its spread to other parts of the world, providing useful experience for global response and boosting confidence in defeating the virus.
