The latest diagnosis and treatment plan, prevention and control plan and other technical documents have been compiled by the National Health Commission (NHC) and promptly shared with over 180 countries and more than 10 international and regional organizations, said Zeng Yixin, deputy director of the NHC, at a press conference in Beijing.

He said that a meeting to share China's epidemic prevention and control experience was jointly held by the NHC and the WHO, which was attended by representatives from 77 countries and seven international cooperations and was watched by over 100,000 people online.

China has also established an online knowledge center in the field of epidemic control and clinical treatment, as well as an expert database for international cooperation, Zeng said, adding that nearly 30 technical exchange meetings have been held with more than 100 countries and regions by video links.

"The video meetings can respond to the needs of foreign parties in a timely manner, as well as facilitate the accurate utilization of epidemic prevention and control technologies at home and abroad," Zeng said.

Zeng pointed out that China has dispatched teams of medical experts to Italy, Serbia, Cambodia and other countries, and has guided medical aid teams stationed in 56 countries to actively assist developing countries to carry out epidemic prevention and control work, as well as to hold over 200 online and offline trainings.

Next, the NHC will continue to work effectively with the WHO to share China's anti-epidemic experience with the international community in various forms and provide technical support to relevant countries, Zeng said.

Zeng also called for joint efforts to combat the outbreak and promote the construction of a community of a shared future for humanity.
