UK: 'Avoid Overreaction' Warns Chinese Ambassador

China’s Ambassador to the UK Liu Xiaoming answered questions about the coronavirus outbreak at a press conference in London on Tuesday.

Xiaoming warned against “overreaction” and “creating panic” as he urged for “the governments of all countries including the UK to understand and support China’s efforts” to contain the spread of the flu-like virus. The ambassador added that “normal co-operation” between nations should prevail.

“Rumours and panic are more frightening than the virus itself,” Xiaoming maintained.

“Confidence and determination are of vital importance in overcoming [the] epidemic. The issue of public health goes beyond national borders and requires the joint efforts of all sides including the media, who should take up their due social responsibility in this battle against a common enemy of mankind,” he added.

The statement followed the UK government’s travel advice that UK citizens able to leave China should do so.

An estimated 564 people have died and more than 24,000 people have been infected with the respiratory disease which originated in the Wuhan city in China late last December.
