Xi: ‘largest public health emergency’ in communist China’s history


The coronavirus epidemic that has killed over 2,400 people is communist China’s “largest public health emergency” since its founding, President Xi Jinping has said.

“It has the fastest transmission, widest range of infection and has been the most difficult to prevent and control,” Xi said at a meeting on curbing the epidemic, according to state broadcaster CCTV.

He added it was is necessary to learn from “obvious shortcomings exposed” during China’s response, a rare acknowledgement by a Chinese leader.
