  Sun Jiye:Shandong Province Actively Joins the Global Response against COVID-19

On June 2nd, Mr. Sun Jiye, Vice Governor of Shandong Province attended the Expert Webinar of the 2nd conference of the Global Health Forum of Boao Forum for Asia and delivered a speech, sharing experience on how Shandong Province actively joins the global response against COVID-19 and engages in international cooperation. The main content of the speech is as follows: 

It is of great significance for the Boao Forum for Asia Secretariat to organize this expert webinar at this crucial time when countries around the world are battling COVID-19 together. To begin with, I would like to, on behalf of the People's Government of Shandong Province, express our heartfelt thanks to the BFA Secretariat and the Organizing Committee of Global Health Forum for all your efforts. 

What we are facing is the most serious global public health emergency since the end of World War II. Since the start of COVID-19, under the personal leadership and direction of President Xi Jinping, Shandong has acted according to the overall principle of shoring up confidence, strengthening unity, ensuring science-based control and treatment and imposing targeted measures, put the people and their lives first, and raced against the time to fight the ferocious virus. Under the requirement of early detection, reporting, quarantine and treatment, we concentrate the best human and material resources on treating patients with severe conditions. The focus of our efforts is on key groups, areas, sites and workplaces. We have ensured that medical supplies, daily necessities, as well as coal, electricity, oil and gas and their transportation are readily available. After much painstaking efforts, we have achieved strategic result in the fight against the virus. Shandong has reported 788 confirmed cases in total, including 780 cured and discharged cases. By 1 June, there had been no local confirmed case reported in the province for 82 days in a row. With more robust measures, we are coordinating our efforts in containing the spread of COVID-19 and pursuing economic and social development, concentrating on ensuring stability on the six fronts and security in the six areas, and striving to realize the economic and social development goals for the year. 

While delivering a solid performance on the disease control, Shandong has, under the direction of the country, rallied the whole province, sent the best doctors, most advanced equipment, and supplies badly in need to support Huanggang City and Hubei Province. A total of 1,812 people in 12 batches from Shandong have been sent to the frontline. They treated 2,659 patients, hundreds of whom were severe or critical cases. We also donated over 1 billion yuan and a large amount of medical supplies and daily necessities to help the people in Wuhan and Huanggang beat the virus. 

The spread of the virus in the world has not been effectively contained yet, thus, international cooperation is all the more important. Only through this way can we safeguard the lives and health of people around the world, protect the planet Earth-our one and only home, and build a human health community together. We have sent a joint mission to the UK to support overseas Chinese there, shared our experiences in fighting against the virus via video link with countries and regions such as Texas and California of the US, Kherson of Ukraine, and Tanzania, and donated medical supplies to over 20 countries including Italy, Serbia, and the ROK. We will continue to actively join the global response against COVID-19, and provide assistance as our ability allows.

Many experts attending today's webinar are top scholars in treating respiratory infectious diseases. Many of you have witnessed or participated in the prevention and control of the epidemic and the treatment of patients, and have rich practical experience. I believe today's meeting will help the world better respond to the outbreak, and contribute to the early defeat of the virus and the health and well-being of people around the world. 

In conclusion, I wish the webinar a full success, and all the guests success and health.
