What China is doing is not just protecting its own citizens, but also protecting the whole world. We truly appreciate what China did.

The speed of China’s reaction and the scale of its efforts are unprecedented. This shows us the China-speed, China-scale, and China-efficacy, and is highly appreciated. This is the strength of China’s institution, and it provides valuable experience that other countries can learn from.”
