Ordinary People

Under the Party's leadership and deployment, the whole nation did not panic in the face of COVID-19. Rather, they developed a rational understanding of the virus, and adopted a science-based approach to epidemic prevention and control. During his inspection in Hubei, Xi Jinping highlighted the need to closely rely on the people, fully mobilize them and improve their ability to serve and protect themselves. He requested that the basic livelihood of the people be ensured and "the last mile" service problems be solved.

In this nationwide war against the epidemic, the people voluntarily stayed at home, reduced outings, and led a "stay-at-home lifestyle" by doing almost everything online, from sending New Year greetings, to working, teaching and buying things. They supported the community work in this way, in a joint effort to safeguard the hard-won achievements in epidemic prevention and control. While doing their own parts to combat the epidemic, the general public also assisted Wuhan and other parts of Hubei through a variety of forms, demonstrating the spirit of great love.

On March 23, the Central Leading Group for COVID-19 Prevention and Control made the judgment on the development of the epidemic: The spread of the epidemic in China, with Wuhan as the main battleground, had been basically contained, which was a milestone in the anti-epidemic fight. This was an impressive "test report" as a result of the concerted efforts of the whole nation. It was also a strong boost to the Party, the PLA and the people of all ethnic groups in China to continue to work together for the ultimately victory over the epidemic.
