2020/09/05

At the MFA daily press briefing on 4 September, a journalist said that Panelists of the Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response, which is appointed by the World Health Organization to review its coordination of COVID-19 response, were named by the panel's co-chairs during a media briefing on September 3. The panelists include Dr. Zhong Nanshan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

When asked for comments, Spokesperson Hua Chunying noted that Dr. Zhong Nanshan enjoys high prestige as an authoritative expert in infectious disease prevention and control. We believe his professionalism and experience will contribute to the WHO panel's work.

Hua said that COVID-19 is still raging around the world and fighting the virus remains the top priority for all countries. We need to make concerted and coordinated efforts at the national, regional and global levels and give full play to WHO's central role in coordinating anti-epidemic efforts.
