Anti-epidemic miracle highlights CPC’s governance capacity

BEIJING: After more than three years of extraordinary journey in its fight against COVID-19, the Communist Party of China (CPC) has once again demonstrated its remarkable ability to steer the nation toward set goals while responding effectively to challenging circumstances.
On Thursday, a meeting of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee said that China has scored a major and decisive victory in its response to COVID-19, and has created a miracle in the history of human civilization, in which a highly populous nation has successfully pulled through a pandemic.
It has been proven through practice that the CPC Central Committee’s major judgments on the epidemic situation, major decisions on prevention and control work, and major adjustments to prevention and control strategies are completely correct, the meeting said.
Since November 2022, the country has undergone a smooth transition in a relatively short period of time. More than 200 million patients were treated and nearly 800,000 patients in severe condition received effective treatment, and its COVID-19 mortality rate has been kept at the lowest level globally, according to the meeting.
China’s decisive victory against the virus demonstrates the ruling CPC’s governance capacity. It is also a victory over all the slandering and smearing of the country’s epidemic policy by the West.
Always putting the people and their lives first, the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core has led the whole nation in fighting the virus in unity, and has made the right decisions and policies. The public showed their support for the epidemic prevention and control measures, such as the mask protocol and social distancing requirements.
The country has given full play to its unique institutional strength. Medical resources nationwide were mobilized in the shortest period of time to aid the COVID-19 fight in Hubei Province and its capital Wuhan in early 2020. –Agencies
