"When the world is united, we will be invincible." On May 8, Tan Desai, Director General of the World Health Organization, said this in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the eradication of smallpox. When the new coronavirus was pandemic globally, this sentence also became the portrayal of the global anti-epidemic.
Looking back on the timeline of the "epidemic" war, China and foreign countries have joined hands to build a line of defense against the epidemic. At the most difficult time for China's fight against the epidemic, the international community gave support and assistance. At that time, Pakistan took out masks from the national hospital stock, Mongolia donated 30,000 sheep, teachers and students from the sister city of Wuhan and the grammar school of the middle school in Manchester, UK sent a condolences video to sing “the life in full bloom” for Wuhan ? ? From these supplies or solidarity, China received goodwill and help from the world.
"Vote me to peach, reward me", the Chinese nation is a nation that admires gratitude. After learning that Japan's nucleic acid detection reagents were insufficient, China urgently donated a batch of kits to it; after Italy became the epicenter of the European epidemic, 22 million of the approximately 30 million masks obtained from overseas came from China; China was invited 26 medical expert teams were dispatched to 24 countries with urgent needs, and one of them was highly treated by Serbian President Vučić when he arrived in Serbia? China, out of the "darkest moment", while continuing to do well in the prevention and control of domestic epidemics, is also providing assistance to countries in need within its ability.
"China is not a savior, but we are willing to make timely rain," Chinese State Councilor and Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi said in answering questions from Chinese and foreign reporters at the two sessions. China is willing to work with friends in times of crisis. Data show that so far China has provided emergency assistance to nearly 150 countries and 4 international organizations. In addition, on the premise of ensuring quality, China has fully produced medical supplies and equipment in short supply for the world, and masks and protective clothing alone exported 56.8 billion pieces and 250 million pieces to the world.
The prevention and treatment of infectious diseases needs to be solved by integrating human wisdom. Timely report the epidemic information to the World Health Organization, share the whole genome sequence of the virus, nucleic acid detection primers and probe sequences to the world, and share the 7 versions of the new coronary diagnosis and treatment plan and the 6 version of the prevention and control plan to more than 180 countries, 10 A number of international and regional organizations have organized thematic video conferences of health experts for more than 170 countries? China, the first to withstand the impact of the epidemic and take the lead in controlling the epidemic, joined hands with other countries to declare war against the virus using science as a "weapon".
Maria Van Kokhov, technical director of the WHO Health Emergency Program, said that precisely because China shared viral gene sequences, PCR detection reagents could be quickly developed and shared with the world. Lin Xihong, a professor in the Department of Biostatistics and Statistics at Harvard University and a member of the National Medical College of the United States, summed up the six "enlightenments" of the "Wuhan Experience" to the global anti-epidemic.
In the face of the most serious global public health emergencies since World War II, although murmurs still interfere with the international public opinion field, more and more people of insight realize the need to "speak science and seek unity".
At the 73rd World Health Assembly held not long ago, leaders of many countries such as China, France, and Germany delivered speeches at high-level meetings, advocating to defend WHO's role, unite, and fight the epidemic together.
In his speech, Chinese President Xi Jinping also announced five initiatives, namely: China will provide US $ 2 billion in international assistance within two years; cooperate with the United Nations to set up a global humanitarian emergency warehouse and hub in China; establish 30 Chinese-African counterpart hospitals Mechanism, speed up the construction of the headquarters of the African Center for Disease Control; China ’s vaccine will be used as a global public product after it is completed and put into use; China will work with the G20 members to implement the “Debt Relief Initiative for the Poorest Countries” and is willing to work with the international community Increase support to countries with particularly severe epidemics and pressures to help them overcome current difficulties.
"Humanity is a community of shared destiny, and solidarity and cooperation are the most powerful weapons to overcome the epidemic." The outside world has noticed that in the process of global anti-epidemic efforts, whether it is the most urgent construction of the human health and health community or the consideration of the economic and security communities drawn by the epidemic, more and more international voices have begun to call for Enhance the consciousness of the community of human destiny.
Lao Health Minister Bengon Sihavon believes that China actively participates in international cooperation in the fight against epidemics, and has no reservations to share prevention and control and treatment experience with all parties, and do its utmost to provide support and assistance to countries in need. Practicing the concept of a community of shared future for mankind demonstrates the spirit of cooperation working together for human well-being. " David Monjae, director of the Africa-China Research Center at the University of Johannesburg in South Africa, also said: "The international community must establish a sense of community of human destiny, work together to address risks and challenges, and build a beautiful home."
