translated from Spanish: China claims it is able to «contain and defeat» the coronavirus

Shanghai.- China said today that it is able to «contain and defeat» the new coronavirus that causes Wuhan pneumonia, an epidemic that already accumulates 213 dead and 9,692 infected in the Asian giant and has been declared by the World Health Organization as a international emergency.» China is confident and able to effectively contain and eventually defeat the new coronavirus epidemic,» the National Health Commission said in a statement released a few hours after the WHO decision.

Although 99% of cases have been diagnosed within China, an emergency committee of 15 experts, convened by WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, declared the international alert on Thursday afternoon. That alert had been ruled out a week ago but has now been declared after several contagions have appeared among people in countries such as Germany, Japan, the US or Vietnam in patients who had not recently traveled to China.» The Chinese government attaches great importance to the prevention and control of pneumonia caused by the new coronavirus and has taken the strictest measures to curb the epidemic,» the Asian giant’s National Health Commission says today.
The agency, the statement adds, hopes that «the international community will understand and support China’s efforts to prevent and control the epidemic and make concerted efforts with China to contain the epidemic and maintain global health security ISO and WHO suggestions.» In the WHO statement, the agency explained that the alert occurs «not because of what is happening within China but because of the situation in other countries, and because (the coronavirus) could be extended to places with weaker health systems.»

Similarly, the global alert «does not mean that we mistrust China: on the contrary, we believe in China’s full capacity to combat this emergency,» said the Director-General, who traveled to Beijing this week and met with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with Chinese President Xi Jin analyze the progress of the epidemic. This is the sixth time WHO has declared this type of global emergency, following which it has activated the Outbreak of H1N1 (2009), Ebola in West Africa (2014) and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (2019), polio in 2014 and Zika virus in 2016.
