Li Bin, the Director of China’s National Health Commission stated that the pandemic has shown itself to be a “big test” that has shown the weaknesses in the country’s public health system.
This statement comes as China has been accused of responding slowly to the virus and for not disclosing information about the outbreak. There have been calls for an international investigation into the origins of the virus, but China has rejected it.
The director also states that, moving forward, China is going to focus on improving these weaknesses, including the public health system, disease prevention, and data collection.
