Guangzhou (China), March 3 : Top US infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci and leading Chinese respiratory disease expert Zhong Nanshan have called for global solidarity and cooperation to fight against Covid-19.
The epidemiologists exchanged their views in an online conversation hosted by the University of Edinburgh on Tuesday night, Xinhua news agency reported.
The two believed that global cooperation is essential in the epidemic control.
Novel coronavirus is an enemy of all mankind, said Zhong, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Engineering and a leading expert in China’s respiratory disease research.
“If the coronavirus still spreads in some individual countries, Covid-19 cannot be said to be fully controlled worldwide. If we want to end this epidemic, we need appropriate science-based, evidence-based decisions by decision-makers in each country. Everyone should do their best. So we need global solidarity,” Zhong said.
Zhong believed that some unscientific, inhumane means of “natural immunity” should not be used to achieve herd immunity.
