"COVID-19 is neither our first nor last challenge, and with concerted efforts, China and other nations will secure a final victory," said spokeswoman Xi Yanchun at a press conference held by the State Council Information Office of China (SCIO) in Wuhan on Monday. 

Chinese medical experts from Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH) answered journalists’ questions about the science-based treatment of severe COVID-19 cases via video link, and also shared their experiences and feelings during the fight against the pandemic.

"I was speechless when my daughter two months ago asked why I raced to Wuhan," said Wu Dong, associate professor of gastroenterology at PUMCH. “Yet I had the answer during my treatment of a middle-aged female patient in the intensive care unit. She said she didn't want to die, because she loved her daughter and her daughter’s wedding was near. At that moment, I realized that humans are mortal, but love is not,” said Wu.
