Coronavirus: China Response and Next Steps

 

According to the World Health Organization, the comprehensive and strict measures China has taken to contain the spread have yielded positive results and these efforts have been recognized by international community. The number of new infections and fatalities are on the decline, and more and more patients are recovering. 

 
Based on the protective approaches with regard to the coronavirus (COVID-19), China has been able control further spreading of the virus.
 
China is already working to bolster its economy, and return to a more normal semblance of its society, even as it works to contain the remaining chains of COVID-19 transmission. Appropriately, a science-based, risk-informed and phased approach is being taken, with a clear recognition of the need to immediately react to any new COVID-19 cases or clusters as key elements of the containment strategy are lifted.
 
The next step will see China maintain an appropriate level of emergency management protocols, and carefully monitor the phased lifting of the current restrictions on movement and public gatherings. Furthermore, a centralized research program to fast-track the most promising rapid diagnostics and serologic assays has been established and the testing of potential antivirals and vaccine candidates is ongoing. As China has experience with COVID-19, its scientists are working closely with those abroad to further enhance the systematic and real-time sharing of epidemiologic data, clinical results and experiences to improve the global response.
