The Chinese government has announced that it is seeking international cooperation to conduct research projects on drugs, vaccines, test kits and even traditional Chinese medicine to fight the coronavirus. 

In a statement issued on Thursday, the Ministry of Science and Technology said the aim of the programme is to test and develop new technologies to quickly detect and cure the disease.

Research on a vaccine that has completed the first two phases of clinical trials will get priority support, according to the statement.

With most of the 84,900 cases in the country already cured, China has trained its sight on strengthening and expanding its influence abroad, extending assistance to countries that are struggling to contain the pandemic.
