Imported cases cast light on illegal entry
Authorities in China are strengthening border management to stem the importation of COVID-19 through illegal entry channels as the virus continues to spread around the world. In addition to implementing measures including nucleic acid testing and centralized quarantine for inbound illegal entrants, China has recently taken temporary measures to restrict the entry of foreigners with valid Chinese visas or residence permits to contain the increasing risk of imported infections from abroad. Authorities in Xiamen, Fujian province, issued a circular on March 31 to strictly prevent the importation of COVID-19 through illegal entry channels by sea. People who illegally cross the nation's borders or organize and transport others to do so will be investigated, it said, as will enterprises or individuals who harbor, conceal, transport or employ illegal entrants. According to the circular, illegal entrants could receive mitigated punishment, or even be exempted from punishment, if they voluntarily turn themselves in to public security organs or other competent authorities and truthfully state the facts of their illegal passage across the border. The circular also encourages the public to report the organizers, participants in illegal entry activities and those who take in illegal entrants. People can report information by dialing 0592-5781666. Those who provide effective clues or assistance in solving an illegal entry case will get a 10,000 yuan ($1,400) award. Further, those who helped find illegal entrants will be rewarded with 2,000 yuan, it said. By Wednesday midnight, a total of 841 imported infected cases had been reported on the Chinese mainland. Also as of Wednesday midnight, Fujian had reported 49 imported confirmed cases and three suspected cases, according to Fujian health authorities' data. The public security authorities in Quanzhou, Fujian, on March 28 also issued a circular to warn about illegal entry and to encourage the public to report information about such cases as well as people who fail to follow the regulations of medical quarantine and deliberately evade health management. Earlier in March, 13 foreign nationals climbed mountains and illegally crossed the border into Bainan township in Baise city, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region. They were immediately repatriated by the border authorities, according to a statement from the website of the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the National Supervisory Commission. The township has set up 83 informants' boxes and 17 border surveillance stations, and the villagers have been encouraged to report illegal entry activities. Fourteen discipline inspection and supervision teams have been sent by customs in Nanning, capital of Guangxi, to monitor all ports in the region. Authorities in Yunnan province also issued a circular on March 31 requiring strict control of nonessential personnel flow in border areas. Ports of entry prohibit the passage of people from third countries, and the issuance of exit and entry documents in border areas is suspended. The Hekou entry-exit border inspection station in Yunnan province has also strengthened international cooperation with Vietnamese border departments and established a mechanism for the rapid exchange of information among entry-exit personnel at ports, providing sufficient response time for epidemic prevention measures. Border inspection authorities are also working with local governments, farms and health centers to set up duty stations at key border crossings to check for those entering and exiting illegally to prevent the epidemic from spreading. According to a statement from the border management detachment team in Xishuangbanna Dai autonomous prefecture in Yunnan on March 29, the team cracked a case in which 56 people were smuggled across the border last month, all of whom were arrested.

Nation sends special flights to bring citizens home
China has sent nine chartered planes since March to bring back 1,457 of its nationals, including students, from Iran, Italy and other countries hit hard by the global COVID-19 pandemic, a senior official said. Speaking at a news conference in Beijing on Thursday, Vice-Foreign Minister Ma Zhaoxu said there are around 1.4 million Chinese students remaining in foreign countries. While the majority of them chose to stay overseas, China will take necessary measures to help bring back those who really have the need in a gradual and orderly way, and they should follow quarantine measures in China, he said. According to Tian Xuejun, vice-minister of education, 36 Chinese students abroad have been diagnosed with COVID-19. They all have received good treatment, and 11 of them have been discharged from the hospital, Tian said. Ma said Chinese embassies and consulates have 24-hour hotlines for Chinese students overseas, and they have been collecting and distributing health supplies for them. The Foreign Ministry has sent 500,000 health kits, including more than 11 million face masks, to countries with large numbers of Chinese students, Ma said. The first shipments of about 300,000 health kits will be transported on April 10 to 46 embassies and consulates in 12 countries-such as Italy, South Korea, France and Germany-and will be distributed to Chinese students, a Civil Aviation Administration official told reporters.

The flights were to 40 countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Italy, Serbia, Japan and South Korea, he said. Lyu said that the administration has drastically reduced the number of international flights in order to avoid the pandemic being imported to China. A minimum number of flights are being maintained to meet the needs of Chinese citizens overseas, especially Chinese students in foreign countries, he added. He said that 47 Chinese and foreign airlines currently have regular flights from China to 61 destinations in 40 countries. The total number of international flights every week is no more than 134, he said. China sent a specially chartered plane to the UK on Thursday to bring back about 180 Chinese students, he added.

China ready to provide assistance within its capacity to countries in need to combat COVID-19: FM
China will uphold the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind and provide assistance within its capacity to countries in need to fight COVID-19, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said here Wednesday. In his phone conversation with Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok, Wang said that the epidemic situation in European countries is worrying following the outbreak of COVID-19 in many countries and places. China empathizes with the Netherlands on the grave situation it faces and offers sincere sympathies to the Dutch people, he said. Despite the fact that itself is still in need of large amounts of anti-epidemic supplies, China will uphold the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind, provide assistance within its capacity to countries in need, and share its experience in epidemic prevention and control, Wang said. On the Netherlands' procurement demand in China, Wang said that China is willing to provide assistance and make arrangements to facilitate customs clearance, transportation and others. China is also willing to cooperate with the Netherlands in telemedicine and promote exchanges of medical experts, he said, expressing the belief that under the leadership of Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, the Dutch people will be united to overcome the epidemic at an early date by making use of the country's mature medical system. Wang said the Chinese government attaches great importance to the protection of the legitimate rights of Chinese nationals abroad, and that Chinese nationals in the Netherlands will take personal precautions as recommended by Dutch health authorities to actively support local anti-virus efforts. Wang expressed the hope that the Dutch government will attach great importance to and protect the health and safety as well as the legitimate rights of Chinese nationals there, and provide them with due medical guarantee. Wang stressed that virus knows no borders and is the humanity's common enemy which dictates a joint response from the international community. Wang said that from the start of the outbreak, China has shared anti-epidemic information with the international community in the spirit of openness, transparency and responsibility and won precious time for other countries in epidemic prevention and control. Noting the recent emergence of a reverse flow of virus labelling, Wang pointed out that China believes that such moves not only disregard the professional advice of the World Health Organization, but also run counter to the anticipation and efforts of the international community to jointly fight the virus. For his part, Blok said that he highly appreciates the strong measures China has taken to successfully contain the epidemic and expressed appreciation for China's support and provision of facilitation to his country's procurement of medical supplies in China. He also spoke highly of the exchanges and cooperation between the health departments of the two countries. Blok said that the Dutch side considers it very important for China to share anti-virus information and experience and is willing to learn from it. In terms of the health and safety of Chinese nationals in the Netherlands, Blok promised that they will be provided with medical help in the same way as Dutch nationals. Blok said that the accusations made by some politicians of a certain country against China and the Chinese people are totally false. China's all-out efforts to combat the epidemic have achieved remarkable results, and China has shared information with the rest of the world in a timely manner and provided assistance, which the Netherlands highly appreciates and looks forward to further cooperation with China in the future, Blok added.

CPC praised by foreign parties over sharing China's anti-virus experience
A number of overseas political parties have recently expressed gratitude to the Communist Party of China (CPC) for sharing China's experience and practices in its combat against COVID-19. While making an effective effort against the novel coronavirus epidemic at home, China has been committed to international collaboration, injecting confidence and strength into the global fight of the disease, they said in messages addressed to the International Department of the CPC Central Committee. Buya Tulga, general secretary of the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party, said the international community should learn from China's experience and practices in fighting COVID-19. At the difficult moment of the virus outbreak, Xi Jinping, general secretary of CPC Central Committee, has made wise decisions that has led to a series of strong measures to be taken in China, and China's combat of the disease has set a fine example for the ongoing global fight, he said, adding the CPC's call for countries to make a concerted anti-virus effort to handle the current difficulty is warmly responded and supported by the international community. Ace Magashule, secretary-general of South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) party, said they are moved by the CPC's timely experience-sharing following the significant progress made in China's fight against COVID-19, which shows the CPC's high sense of responsibility for safeguarding the global public health security as well as building a community with a shared future for mankind. China's experience will be instructional to South Africa in its coping with the virus, and the ANC is willing to work with the CPC to jointly safeguard the international public health security, he said. Maria Rizzotti, president of Italy's Parliamentary Association "Friends of China", said Italy has updated its anti-virus measures based on the advice from the Chinese expert team dispatched to her country. The Italian people are grateful for the CPC outlining China's anti-virus practices in its letter -- an embodiment of the notion in Xi's proposal of building a community with a shared future for mankind, she said, who meanwhile voiced the confidence that Italy and China will jointly defeat the virus, with their friendship to grow stronger as time goes by. Mohsen Rezaee, secretary of Iran's Expediency Discernment Council, expressed his sincere thanks to China for its support for Iran's epidemic prevention and control. Saying that enhancing the Iran-China friendly cooperation is a significant way to tackle the current challenge, Rezaee said that the Iranian side expects to benefit from China's remarkable battle against the coronavirus, and expand cooperation with China in joint anti-virus efforts. Yemeni Socialist Party General Secretary Abdulraham Al-Saqqaf said that the measures that China has taken embodied its strong governance capacity and the great importance that it has attached to the lives and security of the general public, and demonstrated its extremely high moral standard and tremendous courage. China's experience and practice will play an important role in combating the epidemic across the world, he added. Chairman of the EU-China Friendship Group in the European Parliament Jan Zahradil said that at present, Europe has become the epicenter of COVID-19 worldwide, and China's experience in carrying out rapid and precise detection of the virus, and providing adequate protection for the medical staff will provide the most efficient help for Europe to combat the epidemic. Zahradil added that China's generous help fully proved that China regards the European Union (EU) and its member states as its true strategic partners. He expressed his hope that the EU and China could join hands to win the battle against the epidemic, and together usher in a new era featuring a closer EU-China relationship. Iraklis Tsavdaridis, executive secretary of the World Peace Council, said that China's epidemic prevention and control has entered a new phase, with the number of confirmed cases decreasing and economic recovery gaining momentum, adding that China's professionalism, scientific methods and strong organizational and mobility ability in fighting the virus has won respect globally. Tsavdaridis said that at this critical moment when the epidemic is spreading to other countries and areas, all governments should learn from China's experience and outcomes in combating COVID-19.

China's expert team, medical supplies fly into Rome
A charter flight carrying a 9-member Chinese aid team, along with tonnes of medical supplies, arrived at Rome's Fiumicino Airport on Thursday night, in part of China's efforts to help Italy contain the novel coronavirus outbreak. The Airbus A-350 wide body airliner, from China Eastern, landed around 22:30 local time at the cargo zone of the airport, greeted by a crowd of local experts from the Italian Red Cross, officials of the Italian Foreign Ministry and delegates from the Chinese Embassy to Italy. The team was organized by the National Health Commission and the Red Cross Society of China. It is the third expert team sent abroad by Chinese authorities following previous teams sent to Iran and Iraq. The expert corps departed Shanghai earlier Thursday, and all the team members and flight crew had passed health checks before boarding the plane, according to the Shanghai Municipal Health Commission. They took with them more than 700 pieces of equipment and goods including ventilators, monitors and defibrillators. "We bring here 30 sets of ICU equipment," one of the team members wearing a mask told media after getting off the plane. Cargo blocks wrapped with water proofed material were seen being unloaded from the aircraft. The equipment were selected according to the requirements of the Italian side and were proven to be useful during clinical practices in China, according to Ruijin Hospital of the School of Medicine at Shanghai Jiaotong University, which prepared the equipment. Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio appeared on Facebook expressing his thankfulness. "Tonight Italy is not alone. Many people in the world are supporting us," he said, while his computer showed live broadcast of the scene at the airport. "Another lesson comes from China, during these days in which Italy is facing great difficulties: solidarity, with messages, aids, medical equipment, and doctors," wrote Beppe Grillo, former leader of Five Star Movement, in his blog late on Thursday. "As one of our proverbs says: a friend's love is forever, he is born to be friend in misfortune," he added. Francesco Rocca, Chairman of Italian Red Cross, said he appreciated the Chinese experts who, after their arduous work in the front line for over a month, chose to move ahead by flying all the way to Italy to offer help. "Tonight, (we had) the umpteenth proof thanks to the Chinese Red Cross that has arrived with a team of experts, and aids," his organization posted on twitter. Chinese Ambassador Li Junhua noted that the Chinese support was an example that indicated the vision of a community with a shared future for mankind. "The team members are heroes in harm's way," said Li. The Chinese experts and equipment arrived two days after the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Italy topped 10,000. Hardest hit by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in Europe, Italy has toughened its measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus, and the whole country has been under quarantine for three days. "Quite a lot of Italian doctors and medical experts want to come and show their gratitude to their Chinese colleagues, but not everyone could be allowed to go out of the town at this special moment," said a source from the Italian Red Cross.

Wuhan experts share COVID-19 treatment experience with Italian peers
Three Chinese medical experts from Tongji Hospital in Wuhan on Wednesday shared their experiences treating the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) with their Italian peers who made inquiries on a video call. Enrico Ammirati, a cardiologist in the department of anesthesia and ICU of Niguarda Hospital, raised questions concerning the criterion of wards, treatment schemes of cytokine storm and COVID-19, protection of medics. The Milan-based Niguarda Hospital is the oldest one in the city and one of the largest comprehensive medical facilities in Italy, where the number of confirmed coronavirus cases now stands at more than 3,000. The hospital has vacated a building and has so far admitted more than 200 COVID-19 patients. "It's pretty hard for hospitals in any country around the world to provide a negative pressure ward for every single COVID-19 patient," said Wang Daowen, a cardiologist at the Tongji Hospital affiliated with Huazhong University of Science and Technology. Wang told Ammirati about their solutions by refitting general wards -- turning air conditioners off and adding doors to separate the ward into clean, semi-contaminated and contaminated areas. The treatment of severe and critical COVID-19 patients can refer to that of fulminant myocarditis, Wang said, since cytokine storms were found in patients with both diseases in terms of pathophysiological mechanism. Tongji experts also shared pictures of level-3 protection and the use of protective masks and suits. Since no specific antiviral drugs have been discovered in the academic circle, supportive and symptomatic therapies were mainly used for most COVID-19 patients who have been cured, said Zhou Ning, a cardiologist at Tongji. "We have the experience of fighting SARS and massive data on COVID-19 in Wuhan," Wang said. "It's incumbent on us to share with international peers."

Genetic sequencing tests being done on pet dog of COVID-19 patient in Hong Kong
Genetic sequencing tests are being carried out on the pet dog of a confirmed COVID-19 patient in Hong Kong, which could reveal if the virus has mutated or not, an official of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government's Agriculture, Fisheries & Conservation Department said on Thursday. The department's Assistant Director for Inspection & Quarantine Thomas Sit told a press briefing on Thursday afternoon that the coronavirus is what is known as an RNA virus which eventually mutates. "That is why the University of Hong Kong School of Public Health needs to do a genetic analysis to compare this dog's genetic sequencing to the virus isolated from the patient so that they can compare. So if it is totally identical, then there is no mutation. The testing is still ongoing." Sit reiterated that international experts agreed that the dog has a low level of infection, despite its blood tests not being ready yet. "From the first sample to our last sample tested, it has already (been) six days. The dog's nasal or oral mechanism, their secretion they should have - if contaminated - they should have a way to clean the virus, it would not stay for that long if it was just a contamination," he said. "I think it will take at least five or seven days for the blood results because it is not an easy test, it is not a quick test. We need to grow a virus and then neutralize the serum, so it takes some time," he added. Sit added that it was too early to say whether animal-to-animal transmission was a possibility. "At this stage, we do not have enough data to have a 100-percent answer as to whether it is infectious to other dogs or not. But if the dog's owner is positive, it is better to take precautionary measures to prevent onward transmission," he said. Sit also advised dog owners to wash their hands, wear gloves and try to stop their dogs from licking their surroundings to prevent the virus from spreading further.

China to send more life support machines to COVID-19 epicenter
A leading group of China's COVID-19 response on Thursday called for sending more advanced medical resources, especially life support system ECMOs, to Hubei Province, the epicenter of the epidemic. The group, headed by Premier Li Keqiang, demanded further efforts to treat the severely ill COVID-19 patients to reduce mortality in Hubei, particularly in its capital city of Wuhan. Li, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, presided over the meeting. Precise prevention and control measures for key groups should be implemented, said the meeting. Despite a significant drop in the ratio of severely ill among confirmed cases recently, the number remains large, mostly in Hubei, the meeting said. According to the National Health Commission, there were still 7,984 severe cases in Hubei, including 7,049 in Wuhan, as of the end of Wednesday. "A prominent task of current containment is to strengthen treatment for the severely ill," the meeting said. The meeting stressed the work to ensure sufficient supply of daily necessities in Wuhan and Hubei, and to guarantee basic living conditions for people including non-Hubei residents who have been stranded in the province due to the suspension of transportation. Opening dates of the new semester for colleges, primary and secondary schools as well as kindergartens should, in principle, continue to be postponed, according to the meeting. The meeting also stressed cooperation with the World Health Organization and relevant countries and regions to continuously expand the positive trend in the prevention and control work, adding that cooperation in diagnosis and treatment plans and research on drug and vaccine development should be strengthened. Joint control measures with the international community should be adopted to effectively prevent imported and exported epidemic cases amid the cross-border movement of people, the meeting said.

Confirmed COVID-19 cases increase to 400 in Italy
ROME - A total of 400 people tested positive for the novel coronavirus in Italy, up by 26 from the official tally released at noon, Civil Protection chief and Extraordinary Commissioner for the Coronavirus Emergency Angelo Borrelli told a televised press conference at 6 pm local time (1700 GMT) on Wednesday. The number includes the death tally, which remained unchanged at 12, and the three recovered, Borrelli said. Among the confirmed cases, 258 are in Lombardy, a region in northern Italy where the epidemic first broke out and most of the fatalities occurred. Another 71 are in the Veneto region with Venice as its regional capital, 47 in Emilia Romagna, and 11 in Liguria. Borrelli specified that the Liguria cases are not to be considered another hotbed because they occurred within a group that was traveling together. The rest of the cases are scattered between Lazio (three), Piedmont (three), Sicily (three), Tuscany (two), Bolzano (one) and Marche (one). The Lazio cases refer to the three recoveries: a Chinese tourist couple who have been hospitalized since the end of January, and an Italian researcher who had returned from China and who has since made a full recovery. The Italian government has placed 11 towns, 10 of them in Lombardy and one in Veneto, under lockdown in an effort to contain the epidemic, and it is also trying to stem growing fears about Italy abroad. "We are seeing a worrisome proliferation of inaccurate and alarmist news reports on the health care situation in our country, which do not reflect the reality of an infection that remains significantly circumscribed to some small restricted areas in a few regions," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday. The towns under quarantine make up 0.05 percent of the national territory and the residents under quarantine make up 0.089 percent of Italy's population, according to the Foreign Ministry.

China's Hainan, Guangdong provinces heighten crackdowns on wildlife crimes
The Chinese provinces of Hainan and Guangdong have heightened crackdown on wildlife-related crimes. China's southernmost Hainan Province has launched a three-year campaign to crack down on wildlife crimes as part of the efforts to fight the novel coronavirus, local authorities said Wednesday. The operation will target illegal hunting and killing of wild animals, illicit sales, purchase and consumption of wildlife products, the provincial department of public security said, adding that the crackdown will be enforced "severely and swiftly in accordance with laws." Police also posted cash rewards to encourage the public to report such crimes and urged offenders to turn themselves in for leniency. In the southern province of Guangdong, police have listed seven behaviors regarding wildlife as major targets of crackdown. The behaviors include illegal purchasing, transportation and sales of wild animals and their products, in addition to eating wild animals, according to the provincial department of public security. Anyone caught in such acts will face severe punishment, the department said. On Monday, the National People's Congress Standing Committee, the country's top legislature, adopted a decision to thoroughly ban illegal wildlife trade and eliminate the bad habits of eating wild animals.

Decline in new Wuhan deaths shows measures work
The number of new deaths from the novel coronavirus reported in Wuhan, Hubei province, by Monday reaching the lowest in 10 days can signify a change, said Qiu Haibo, a member on the expert panel of the National Health Commission. Qiu said in an interview with China Central Television on Tuesday that the number of new infections and new deaths is declining, which means that the measures adopted in the city have gradually taken effect. He said the critically ill patients were treated intensively. The 10 designated hospitals with 8,000 beds for critical patients had 1,000 empty beds on Tuesday. Moreover, a large number of national medical teams arrived in Wuhan since the beginning of February, bringing Wuhan's treatment level to a national standard, he said. "In general, it can be said with caution and optimism that the treatment of critically ill patients has gradually shown its effect through the previous efforts," he said. He said the declining number is owing to more timely treatment since February when medical resources have become more sufficient. It may also be related to the nature of infectious diseases that the virulence may be decreasing as the disease passes from person to person. Qiu said as medical resources are becoming more and more sufficient and the country's medical strength is gathered in Wuhan, they are confident that the number of critically ill patients will continue to drop. He said the treatment has become more standardized and general patients can now receive more timely treatment to prevent them from becoming critically ill. The treatment concept has also changed from treating a single organ to multiple organs. "A series of progress in treatment and knowledge can help reduce the proportion of severe illness and increase the recovery rate," he said.

China to introduce strong financial measures to help smaller firms tide over difficulties
China will roll out a set of strong financial policies, including encouraging financial institutions to provisionally defer loan payments and increasing lending at concessional rates for micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises, as part of effort to help them overcome temporary difficulties. These decisions were made on Tuesday at the State Council's executive meeting chaired by Premier Li Keqiang. "Statistics show that only a small percentage of micro-, small- and medium-sized businesses have restarted operation. As these firms are major job providers, we must give them greater support to facilitate their early restart of work and tide them over the tough time. Such support can be further intensified for businesses in Hubei Province," Li said. The meeting decided on additional financial measures in line with market principles and the law to support micro-, small- and medium-sized companies in restarting operation. For eligible micro-, small- and medium-sized firms, including household businesses, with temporary liquidity difficulty, financial institutions will be encouraged to provisionally defer their loan principal repayments. Their interest payments can be deferred to June 30, with penalty interest payments exempted. This policy shall apply to all types of businesses in Hubei Province. "The provisional deferment policy for both principal repayment and interest payment is no small step. Execution of this policy must fully comply with the law and be subject to adequate oversight. This policy should also work in tandem with the fiscal support and banks' re-lending to form synergy and produce holistic effects," Li said. It was decided at the meeting that the re-lending and re-discount quota will be increased by 500 billion yuan (about 71.2 billion U.S. dollars), with the bulk channeled to small and medium-sized banks to increase their credit support to micro-, small- and medium-sized businesses. The re-lending rate targeting rural areas, agriculture, farmers and smaller businesses will be lowered by 25 basis points to 2.5 percent. Before the end of June, local banks (namely, urban and rural commercial banks and rural credit cooperatives) that issue new inclusive loans to micro and small businesses at a rate no higher than 50 basis points above the loan prime rate (LPR) will be able to apply for re-lending funds to the full amount of the loan extended. It was decided at the meeting that national commercial banks will be encouraged to offer more loans to micro and small firms, and work toward meaningfully lowering the lending rates for such firms from last year's level. State-owned large banks are urged to increase the balance of their inclusive loans to micro and small businesses by no less than 30 percent year-on-year in the first half of this year. Policy banks will add a 350-billion-yuan special credit quota to be issued to micro-, small- and medium-sized firms at preferential rates. Guidance will be given to financial institutions to issue more low-interest loans targeting household businesses. "Household businesses, large in number and covering extensive sectors, employ over 200 million people, and are hence vital to the livelihood of tens of millions of families and to the stability of the whole society. They have been hit hard in this outbreak. The central and local governments must act in concert to provide them with support and see all supporting measures targeting these businesses be delivered to the full extent," Li said.

China greenlights new coronavirus detection method
China has approved two antibody detection reagent of novel coronavirus, a new method of detecting the disease, according to Zhong Nanshan, a prominent Chinese expert in respiratory disease, on Sunday. Speaking to a medical team sent from Guangdong to Hubei via remote consultation, Zhong said the antibody detection reagent of novel coronavirus would help increase efficiency of testing the disease. Guangzhou Wondfo Biotech Co, a company specialized in research and development, manufacturing and sales of rapid diagnostic reagents and related equipment, is one of the companies that has successfully developed the reagent. The antibody detection reagent, or colloidal gold method, approved by the National Medical Products Administration, was one of the first batch of novel coronavirus antibody rapid test permitted to be used on the on-site coronavirus screening. Novel coronavirus antibody detection reagent can detect both IgM and IgG, with positive result of IgM antibody indicating a recent infection, while positive result of IgG antibody signaling a longer or previous infection. Designed for qualitative detection of novel coronavirus IgM and IgG antibodies in human serum, plasma and whole blood samples, this rapid test will effectively accelerate the on-site screening for suspected patients within 15 minutes with easier operation, according to the company. Zhong, one of the leading specialists tackling the outbreak, said the testing method would be of great use to detecting novel coronavirus. It will specially help us detect very fast patients infected with the novel coronavirus in Hubei province by using the antibody detection reagent - so it will help us better discover patients with the disease, said Zhong.

Chinese government doing well in controlling virus spread: Namibian experts
Some Namibian experts say that the Chinese government has been doing well in controlling the spread of the coronavirus while at the same time promoting social and economy development. The Chinese government's control of the virus not to spread to African countries is fruitful, said clinical psychologist Shaun Whittaker. "So far we have not recorded any deaths due to the virus in the Southern African Development Community(SADC) countries. That is a sign that the Chinese government has informed and educated us on time and with right message about the virus. I am pleased to say that the government did exceptionally well. On the other hand we also need to congratulate the African governments for supporting each other to fight the further spread of the virus especially if it comes to border controls," he said. Whittaker added that running a government effectively amid the disease outbreak is not easy but the Chinese government did not back down for constantly promoting economic growth and social development. Political commentator in the University of Namibia, Ndumba Kamanya, has said that Chinese government has managed to stay focus beside challenges it faces. "We need to be mindful about the fact that we are lucky to have the Chinese as our bilateral partners in some sectors such as the health sector. We should thank them for even informing the rest of the world about the outbreak on time. " he said.

Foreign party leaders support China's efforts to fight virus, restore economic growth
Party leaders of more countries have expressed their confidence in China's defeating the novel coronavirus disease and rapidly restoring its economic growth. In the messages sent to the International Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, they positively evaluated the progress China has made in combating the epidemic of novel coronavirus pneumonia. Chairman of the Nepal Communist Party (NCP), Pushpa Kamal Dahal, who is commonly known as Prachanda, said his party strongly appreciates China's highly responsible attitude towards the safety of people's life and health, as well as its timely and transparent information sharing with the world in fighting the virus. His party firmly believes that under the strong leadership of Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, China's relentless efforts and resolute measures to stop the virus from spreading further will quickly achieve the results as expected and win the final victory. Ram Madhav, national general secretary of India's Bharatiya Janata Party or Indian People's Party (BJP), said that in 2018, the leaders of India and China held an informal meeting and reached important consensus in Wuhan, which is the epicenter of the virus epidemic, and this has prompted Indians to remember and love the Chinese city. After the outbreak of the epidemic, the Indian people, sympathizing with the Wuhan residents, firmly stand together with the Chinese government and people in their anti-virus fight and wish them an early victory and return to normal work and life. The Workers Party of Bangladesh strongly opposes the ill-intentioned reports attempting to dishonor and degrade the CPC and the Chinese government, and it fully supports the devoted efforts by the CPC, the Chinese government and people in combating the virus, said the party's Secretary-General Fazle Hossain Badsha in his message. It is believed that under the CPC's leadership, China will win the anti-virus battle soon, he added. Aquilino Pimentel III, president of the Philippine Democratic Party-People's Power and former Senate president, said in his message that in coping with the epidemic, the CPC and the Chinese government have adopted resolute measures to protect the people's life and health, providing examples for the world to learn from. His party is willing to share the hardships with China, with its thoughts and prayers to be always with the CPC and the Chinese people, wishing them an early end of the public health emergency of international concern. In her message, Justine Lumumba Kasule, secretary general of Uganda's National Resistance Movement, said she believes that the CPC will well coordinate the efforts to combat virus and promote economic development in China, benefiting both the Chinese and the world people. The eventful past years of the CPC and the People's Republic of China have shown that the history is always on the side of the Chinese people, to which the current epidemic emergency will be no exception, she said, adding that Uganda's government is willing to learn from China's experiences in epidemic prevention and control. Sultan al-Barakani, assistant secretary-general of General People's Congress Party of Yemen, who is also the speaker of the Yemeni parliament, said China has blazed a unique development path and achieved in just a few decades what other countries have achieved in centuries. The fact that China has brought the epidemic under control quickly and is about to help mankind overcome it is testimony to China's strong capabilities to win the battle, al-Barakani said, adding the Chinese nation is one worthy of the respect of all countries and peoples in the world. Jibril al-Rajoub, secretary general of the central committee of Palestine's Fatah movement, said that over the years, China has consistently supported the just cause of the Palestinian people, adding the two peoples have stood together through thick and thin and offered help to each other. Expressing firm support to China in the fight against the epidemic, al-Rajoub said the Palestinian side is ready to unite with China as brothers and provide all assistance within its own capacity. He also wished that China will overcome the epidemic as soon as possible, continues to achieve rapid development in various fields, and always stands firmly in the community of nations. Lars Klingbeil, general secretary of Germany's Social Democratic Party, said the Chinese government and people have made great efforts to fight the epidemic and prevent the spread of the virus. Klingbeil called on the international community to strengthen coordination and jointly prevent the spread of the epidemic, saying his party will firmly stand with the Chinese people. Besides the above-mentioned political leaders, more have expressed their support to China's efforts in fighting the epidemic and their willingness to jointly overcome the difficulties, including Cambodian People's Party Vice Chairman Samdech Say Chhum, Revolutionary Front for an Independent Timor-Leste Secretary General Mari Alkatiri, Central African Republic's United Hearts Movement National Executive Secretary Simplice Sarandji, Gabonese Democratic Party Secretary General Eric Dodo Bounguendza, Nigerian All Progressives Congress National Chairman Adams Oshiomole, Mauritania's Union for the Republic president Sidi Mohamed Ould Taleb Amar, Democratic Alliance for Niger President Habi Mahamadou Salissou, Executive Director of the Rally of Houphouetists for Democracy and Peace in Cote d'lvoire Adama Bictogo, Colombian Democratic Center Party President Nubia Stella Martinez Rueda, General Secretary of the Dominican Republic's United Left Movement Miguel Mejia, Uruguayan Colorado Party General Secretary Julio Maria Sanguinetti, Leaders Party of Vanuatu President Jotham Napat, International Secretary of Greece's New Democracy Party Anastasios Chatzivasileiou, Serbian Progressive Party Vice President Marko Djuric, Great Britain-China Center Chairman Martin Davidson.

Wuhan starts three-day screening campaign
Authorities in Wuhan, the epicenter of the novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak in Hubei province, launched a three-day campaign on Monday to screen people in order to leave no one unattended and curb the spread of the contagion. The screening work came after the city issued a public notice on Friday that required all residential communities to be locked down and reduce people's movement to limit transmission of the disease. All residential communities throughout the city are required to be checked door-to-door to identify infected people, suspected cases and those who have close contact with the infected people, Wang Zhonglin, Party secretary of Wuhan, said at a video conference on Sunday. Wang urged officials to be highly responsible for people's health, and "leave no household, no one behind "during the screening process. Fever patients, people who have had close contact with confirmed cases and suspected cases of infections must receive nucleic acid tests in a timely manner while those with confirmed cases must be hospitalized, he added. On Monday, while chairing a meeting on epidemic prevention and control, Wang called for efforts to provide more beds to hospitals to admit more patients. He told officials attending the meeting that every effort must be made to improve the admission and recovery rates and reduce the infection and mortality rates. While stressing that violations of the regulations on the community lockdown will be punished, Wang also underlined the need to improve the commodity delivery systems to guarantee the supply of daily necessities to residents. Acting on government instructions, residential communities have strengthened control of their entrances. Tian Ming, head of a neighborhood committee in Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Development Zone, organized 30 community workers to do screening from early Monday morning. "We have 1,315 households in the community. We will visit them door-to-door, learning how many people there are in the homes, noting their telephone numbers, checking their temperatures and taking note of whether they have health problems,"Tian told China Daily. The community workers operate in shifts to provide round-the-clock services to the residents to ensure they can be reached at any time for assistance in health problems or supplies of daily necessities, he said. Wang Qiong, Party secretary of the Zhongda community in the city's Hanjiang district, said the community has a massive floating population due to its proximity to markets. As many people returned to their homes before Lunar New Year, 1,159 people in 644 households in the community have been reached to identify their health condition by making calls, contacting them on WeChat or sending messages by mobile phone, Wang said, adding that seniors or people with disabilities would be reached by home visits. Wu Hanyun, a 62-year-old man living in the community with his wife, said that he understands the lockdown of communities in the city."The fact that we are not going outdoors is our contribution to the nation's efforts to combat the novel coronavirus pneumonia," he told China Daily by phone. Wu said the community workers help his family a lot with daily necessities. "I believe we can triumph over the difficulties through united efforts. Stay strong, Wuhan!" he added.

Recovery rate boosted by better treatment for critically ill
A senior National Health Commission official said Saturday that the bolstered efforts to treat critically ill patients have helped boost the recovery rate for the novel coronavirus pneumonia. The recovery rate at Wuhan Jinyintan Hospital and Wuhan Lung Hospital - the first two hospitals designated to treat severe cases in Hubei province - has seen a hike, reaching 30 to 39 percent, according to Jiao Yahui, deputy head of the commission's medical administration bureau. An expert panel has been established at the national level, which amassed a number of academicians in both Western and traditional Chinese medicine to combat the virus, she told a news conference held by the State Council Information Office in Wuhan - the epicenter of the outbreak. The top experts will keep updating treatment guidelines issued to health facilities across the nation in light of their practice on the front line, she added. The developments came as China moves to focus the best medical resources on patients in critical condition in an attempt to slash the mortality rates. According to Jiao, the critically ill patients account for about 18 percent of the total confirmed and hospitalized cases in Wuhan, and many are seniors with underlying conditions and have been hospitalized for a long time. So far, Wuhan has designated five hospitals for treating critically ill patients, with the number of beds expanding to 5,000. To better treat critically ill patients, the commission has designated a number of hospitals for them, which are staffed by top experts, and the treatment plans are adjusted daily in light of their condition, Jiao said, adding they have institutionalized the discussion of severe and death cases, and cross-department consultation. She said the commission has also formed a treatment guideline for those in critical condition, which recommends anti-viral treatment, oxygen therapy, combined therapy of traditional Chinese and Western medicine, and the use of invasive respirators and the plasma from recovered patients.

WHO advises public on novel coronavirus
BEIJING -- The World Health Organization (WHO) released information and advice recently to the public regarding the novel coronavirus epidemic, which has struck China, particularly its central Hubei Province. "Antibiotics do not work against viruses, only bacteria," the WHO said on its official website, noting that as the novel coronavirus is a virus, antibiotics are not effective in preventing or treating it. However, if a patient is hospitalized for the virus, he may receive antibiotics since "bacterial co-infection is possible," the organization added. Up to now, there is no specific medicine for preventing or treating the virus, but some particular cures are being studied and will be tested in clinical trials, the WHO said, adding that it is working with partners to help accelerate related research and development work. "People of all ages" can be infected with the novel coronavirus, and elder people and people with pre-existing medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes and heart disease are more susceptible, the WHO said. With regard to whether companion animals like dogs or cats can be infected with the virus, the WHO said, there is no evidence on it yet. But the organization advised people to wash hands with soap and water after contacting pets, which can help protect them against "various common bacteria such as E.coli and Salmonella that can pass between pets and humans." Chinese health authorities said on Monday that it received reports of 2,829 new confirmed cases of novel coronavirus infection and 57 deaths on Sunday from 31 provincial-level regions and the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps.
