CHINA (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — China is confident that it will take control of the coronavirus situation by the end of April. This was stated by the head of the special expert commission of the State Committee for Health of the People’s Republic of China Zhong Nanshan.
“We are confident that by the end of April the epidemic situation as a whole will be taken under control,” said Zhong Nanshan.
According to him, such conclusions are made by Chinese experts on the basis of the traditional model, taking into account strong government interference and passenger traffic during the Spring Festival.
The specialist noted that in the fight against the new coronavirus, international cooperation is necessary, because it is a disease of humanity, and not of a separate country.
He also emphasized that the epidemic began in China, but this does not mean that the virus originated in China.
As reported by Chinese media, as of the morning of February 27, the total number of cases of coronavirus in the world amounted to 83,368 cases, per day the number of cases increased by 1219 people. In addition to China, the disease is recorded in 49 countries. There, 4,409 cases of infection were confirmed; during the day, the increase in cases amounted to 890 people.
