Chinese scientists are working around the clock to find a vaccine for the relentless corona virus, which continues to claim lives.
The Chinese Embassy in South Africa updated journalists in Pretoria on the progress.
According to the Chinese Ambassador to South Africa,Lin Songtian;
“This epidemic is so unexpected, and up to now is unknown virus. So this is the new Coronavirus. This kind of virus is the first time to infect the humankind and poses a serious threat to the public health. So we need time to recognise the virus, to isolate the virus and develop the vaccine and medicine to deal with it.”Africa is so far the only continent to escape the outbreak.
The Chinese government is working closely with South Africa to screen and monitor arrivals from China. South Africa is among 13 countries with the highest volume of Chinese travellers.
