From the beginning, China has taken unprecedented measures to combat COVID-19. The country's efforts, capabilities, and dedication to standing together in the face of this dreaded virus is admired by many.

On the one hand, the unified Chinese people with different nationalities, religions, ethnicity are fighting against the virus; on the other hand, many people are trying to distort the true images of China and offend the great people of China by spreading false rumors and fake news.

People do not need to come to China to know the greatness of Chinese people. Rather, they can only look around themselves and see that most of what surrounds them is the products made in China, known as the world's factory today.

Not everything that is said is true, and not everything that is published is true. Therefore, we must investigate the accuracy and seek objectivity before publishing any news.

The country of 1.4 billion people today stands together on the front line of the fight against the virus.

With all the respect and love of the Chinese people, we wish they recover from this dangerous virus at the earliest date.

Our hearts are with Chinese people. We pray for China and its people from any harm, and we are confident that China will overcome this crisis and become stronger.
