Xi Jinping declares that Coronavirus is the biggest health emergency in China since 1949

Beijing. - The new coronavirus epidemic is the "biggest health emergency" in China since the founding of the communist regime in 1949, President Xi Jinping said on Sunday.
It is necessary to learn from the "obvious deficiencies" that have occurred in China's response, Xi added at an official meeting to coordinate the fight against the virus, an unusual recognition by a Chinese leader, AFP reported.
In comments collected by the state-owned CCTV network, Xi said that the epidemic "has the fastest transmission, the widest range of infection and has been harder to prevent and control."
"This is a crisis for us and a great test," he added.
The statements of the Chinese president occur at a time in that the virus has already claimed about 2,400 lives and infected almost 77,000 people in mainland China.
In addition, outside the country, South Korea has activated the maximum alert and Italy has established quarantine measures.
Xi acknowledged Sunday that the epidemic "will inevitably have a great impact on the economy and society," but stressed that the effects will be "short-term" and controllable.
