BEIJING: Long Dingbin, Chinese Consul General in Lahore said, remarkable results were achieved by China in combating COVID-19, and meanwhile close attention was being paid to the epidemic situation in Pakistan.
In a write-up published by Gwadar Pro, he said he strongly believes that we are bound to win the battle against the epidemic through the concerted efforts by the governments and people of China and Pakistan.
Ever since the outbreak, Chinese government has been adhering to the principle of “early detection, early reporting, early isolation, early diagnosis and treatment”, treating the infected in dedicated facilities by senior medical professionals from all over the country and with all necessary resources.
Moreover, Chinese government has taken the most comprehensive, rigorous and thorough measures of epidemic prevention and control, for instance, over 330 medical teams and more than 42,000 medical staff were dispatched to Hubei Province including Wuhan.
Although China has close relations with Pakistan and people of the two countries have kept frequent contact, but so far there has not been a single confirmed case in Pakistan imported from China, which exactly proves Chinese government has been putting relentless efforts into containing the epidemic.
China has been very effective in implementing a differentiated, location-specific response to limiting transmission, so that public health measures are tailored to the differing realities on the ground. With strong action, it is possible to push the virus back.
China-Pakistan all-weather strategic cooperative partnership has become a model for countries of different sizes or systems getting along with one another. Despite changes of international situations, the two countries share weal and woe through thick and thin all the time, offering selfless help to each other whenever in need.
Joining hands in fighting COVID-19 once again embodies profound bilateral friendship as the two countries always help and support each other. Chinese government and people will never forget it is Pakistani government who has mobilized medical supplies nationwide to help China out at the critical time in fighting COVID-19.
The letters addressed by President Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan to President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang respectively as well as the resolution passed by the Senate of Pakistan expressed support for China’s fight against COVID-19, speaking highly of China’s unremitting efforts against the outbreak.
