Two months into the fight against the novel coronavirus, China is working with other countries and organizations to try and contain its spread.

In efforts to keep the virus contained, the Chinese government quarantined the city of Wuhan, cut off public transportation and used other measures to keep the virus from spreading.

Now, the government is working on measures to boost the economy post-quarantine and slowly get people back to work.


Communities inside the U.S. are also working together to gather supplies and resources for people in China to help them fight the virus.

In an interview with National Public Radio on Thursday, Chinese Ambassador to the U.S. Cui Tiankai said China appreciates the support from American people, businesses and non-governmental institutions. 

But some U.S. politicians have been "taking advantage of other people's suffering," Cui said. "I don't think this is very good thing."


Ambassador Cui said China welcomes experts from all countries to come and help fight the virus. He said the World Health Organization is already sponsoring a group of experts.
