MFA: China is Prepared to Take Proper and Necessary Measures with Japan and the ROK to Curb the Spread of COVID-19 Across Borders

2020/02/25

On 25 February, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian gave a regular press conference. One question was: confirmed cases in Japan and the ROK surged over the past few days, and cases were increasing quite fast in the ROK, in particular. The Chinese embassy in the ROK issued a notice, urging its nationals in the country to better protect themselves. Will China take any special measures to restrict entry from Japan and the ROK?

Zhao Lijian responded that in the face of the outbreak, it is the responsibilities of all countries to protect the safety and health of their nationals and to safeguard regional and global public health security. We stand ready to closely communicate and cooperate with Japan, the ROK and other relevant countries, discuss ways to enhance coordinated responses, and take proper and necessary measures together to effectively curb cross-border spread of the virus and protect public health security in the region and beyond.
