RAMALLAH, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) -- A senior Palestinian official on Wednesday praised China's model in confronting the novel coronavirus in order to protect the Chinese people.
Hanna Issa, deputy commissioner-general for Arab and China relations in the country's major Fatah party, said that China's COVID-19 response has won the respect of the world.
"China had followed strict precautionary and preventive measures for months to fight the unprecedented pandemic," Hanna said at a virtual symposium with the Communist Party of China and 50 other political parties from around the world.
He said that China has helped many countries fight the novel coronavirus by providing essential information about it and sharing its experiences in confronting the public health crisis.
In addition, China has donated large sums of fund to the World Health Organization to support its efforts to combat the disease and sent medical delegations, equipment and medical supplies to more than 130 countries around the world, including Palestine, he added. Enditem
