Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus pneumonia (NCP) in China, the country has taken quick and united actions to win its battle against the epidemic under the decisive arrangements made by the CPC Central Committee. Recently, COSCO SHIPPING has allocated one million yuan as special emergency funds for epidemic prevention and control at the urgent request of Anhua County and Yuanling County in order to reduce their financial pressure in disease control. A few days earlier on January 29, COSCO SHIPPING had already donated 30 million yuan to Wuhan Charity Federation for epidemic prevention and control in Wuhan.
During this period, COSCO SHIPPING has been attaching great attention to the epidemic situation in the five counties that are recipients of its targeted assistance and support for long. It has kept in close contact with the counties through local government officials. Anhua and Yuanling, two counties in Hunan Province, confront huge pressure in the prevention and control of NCP particularly because they are geographically close to Hubei Province, with frequent flow of population, unfavorable medical and health conditions, and weak infrastructure.
Now the campaign of epidemic control in China has reached a critical stage. COSCO SHIPPING will actively take its social responsibility and marshal its full resources to win this battle against NCP, and to fulfill the task of poverty alleviation this year for the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects in China.
