The Chinese government defended its actions related to the coronavirus pandemic on Sunday with a careful official document, assuring that the Chinese Disease Control Center has already informed its US counterpart of the contagion on 4 January.

Chinese health minister Ma Xiaowei said that “no time was wasted” to share information about the virus with the World Health Organization. “The Chinese government has not delayed or covered up anything,” Ma said in the document.

“In contrast, we immediately inform the international community about virus data and relevant information about the epidemic. We have made an important contribution to the global prevention and control of the epidemic,” he argued.

The 37,000-word document highlights measures to combat the disease and improve international cooperation. “I disagree with the statement that China’s relations with other countries have been negatively impacted. It is wrong,” said Deputy Foreign Minister Ma Zhaoxu.
