To successfully conquer any major threat to global health and security, a united international effort is usually required. Therefore, to defeat the current Novel Coronavirus outbreak plaguing China, global solidarity is needed between nations with a focus to standing with China in its actions to contain infections inside and outside of China.
In lieu of isolating China via travel bans and restrictions amid social media racist and xenophobic lies and rumors aimed the people of China, each and every nation that dispatched planes to remove their citizens from China should have had those aircraft loaded with medical experts and medical supplies to deploy within China.
China's decision to close cities and megacities in its fight against the Novel Coronavirus has been a bold action, done not only with the welfare of the wider China in mind, but toward the protection of the entire world. Yet, while the virus remains virulent with 20,702 cases being reported, and recording 427 deaths thus far with all but two of the deaths occurring within Mainland China, is indicative of the measures China has taken to contain the illness. A new hospital was built in a record eight-days and another is under construction to nurse victims back to health.
In contrast the Seasonal Flu has killed some 10,000 people in the United States (US) so far this season, while infecting 19 million people. The US and some other countries have banned visitor travel to and from China.
The prudent and united global action in assisting China to defeat the Novel Coronavirus should be the provision of experts and much needed medical supplies. So Stand with China. Defeat 2019n CoV.
