A new book explores the lives of foreign nationals, from 25 nations, living in China during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. "China, We Stand with You—what communications professionals from 25 nations see in coronavirus fight," is written by 35 foreign experts, and has been released by New Star Press of China International Publishing Group (CIPG).

The English and Chinese editions of "China, We Stand with You—what communications professionals from 25 nations see in coronavirus fight," written by 35 foreign experts, released recently by New Star Press of CIPG. []

This book includes contents from news, reports, pictures, comments and videos published by 35 experts who decided to stay or come back to China after the outbreak of COVID-19. They come from 25 countries and all work at CIPG.

The book consists of 40 articles and 300 photos divided into eight parts: "China Is Taking Action Against COVID-19", "Staying up in China", "Beijing During the Coronavirus Outbreak", "How Are Foreigners Reacting to the COVID -19 outbreak? ", "Challenges Test Love", "Joint Efforts in Combatting Coronavirus", "Lands Apart, Sky Shared", and "Virus Secludes Us, Love Spreads". Each part is accompanied with videos that can be accessed via QR codes. The videos, created by the authors of the book, are available in English, French, Arabic, Spanish, Japanese, and Korean languages. These written and visual documents record how Chinese people have worked tirelessly to bring relief to the tens of thousands of Chinese citizens infected by the coronavirus.

Videos from "China Is Taking Action Against COVID-19" can be accessed through the QR codes.


The 35 authors are experts working at CIPG and are concerned about China. As media professionals, they have found Western coverage to be misleading and misconstruing. They believe that such coverage has expanded fears. Under such circumstances, the experts have strived to display the real situation in China, and "tell people what's really going on with China". As foreigners, they chose to stay in China, and some others even "travelled against the flow" to come back. Their decisions were not reckless, because "China is the place where great achievements and miracles are made". No matter where they are from, they share a common faith that "the smiles behind masks will reveal themselves in this lovely country soon." Their sincerity is formidable, and their stories are heartening. This is a book of remembrance, a remembrance of the responsibility of media and press professionals, the trust of foreigners towards China and the Chinese people, and of love beyond boundaries. This explains what internationalism is — love and care for each other despite of nationality when we confront crises.
