By Qiu Ping Source: Updated: 2023-09-26

For over three years, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) with Xi Jinping at its core has united all members of the Party and all the Chinese people in the arduous fight against Covid-19 pandemic. China successively defended Wuhan, Shanghai, and many other locations against repeated waves of the virus. China has upheld the idea that “the people of the world are members of the same family,” not only seeking to protect the safety and health of the Chinese people but also contributing to the global public health, promoting the building of a global community of health for all, as befitting a major country.

China has always been open, transparent, and responsible as well as proactively fulfilled its international obligations. China notified the WHO and relevant countries and regional organizations of the discovery of Covid-19 as soon as possible and shared the virus' genome sequence as well as our diagnosis, treatment, and containment plans. China shared information on changes in each strain of the virus with the international community, which was an important reference for the international community to contain the virus and develop vaccines and testing kits. China champions efforts to build a global community of health for all as well as improvements to the governance system of public health security. China has issued a series of proposals on international aid and vaccine use in an effort to bring Chinese wisdom, experience, and medicine to bear in the global fight against Covid-19.

For over three years, China has overcome the difficulties it faced at home while supporting the global fight against Covid-19 pandemic. China has provided 153 countries and 15 international organizations with hundreds of billions of items required to contain the virus and led calls to make Covid-19 vaccines a global public good. China was the first country to cooperate with developing countries on vaccine production and has supplied more than 2.2 billion doses to more than 120 countries and international organizations, playing an active role in supplying other countries with materials required to fight the virus. China dispatched 37 teams of medical experts to 34 countries, saving tens of thousands of lives through practical action.
