President Xi Jinping on Monday announced concrete measures to boost global fight against COVID-19. Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the announcement as he addressed the opening of the 73rd session of the World Health Assembly (WHA) via video link. China will work with the United Nations to set up a global humanitarian response depot and hub in China, ensure the operation of anti-epidemic supply chains and foster "green corridors" for fast-track transportation and customs clearance, he said.
At this crucial juncture of global fight against COVID-19, to support WHO is to support international cooperation and the battle for saving lives as well. China calls on the international community to increase political and financial support for WHO so as to mobilize resources worldwide to defeat the virus.
