As the world grapples with the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), China shared its method of containing the pandemic in a video summit held by Group of 20 leaders on March 26.
President Xi Jinping put forth four proposals at the summit, calling on G20 members to remain resolute in fighting an all-out global war against COVID-19, produce a collective response for control and treatment at the international level, support international organizations in playing their roles and enhance international macroeconomic policy coordination.
Today, confirmed cases in G20 member states account for over 80 percent of the global total. These countries are urged to shoulder their responsibility and contain the pandemic through cooperation as part of a platform for comprehensive crisis management and financial governance.
China has assumed its responsibility in the global containment of the pandemic and is ready to contribute further under the framework of the G20, offering its experience in successfully containing the virus.
G20 members should enhance information sharing and coordination on epidemic prevention and control, support the World Health Organization and contribute to the improvement of international public health governance.
The spread of COVID-19 is fueling concern about its impact on the global economy. G20 countries also advocate international cooperation for economic recovery.
