In the past three years, China has ridden many waves of the pandemic and has successfully dealt with more than 100 cluster outbreaks. According to statistics, in China, with a population of more than 1.4 billion people, the COVID-19 epidemic has claimed the lives of just over 5,000 people.

In early 2020, in the face of the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, China mobilized resources across the country by launching an unprecedented life-saving operation in the hardest-hit city of Wuhan, Hubei province.
