While the United States continues to restrict the export of medical materials, materials from China are being continuously shipped to the United States.
On March 30, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying said at a regular press conference that the Chinese people sincerely hope that the United States will control the spread of the epidemic as soon as possible and reduce the losses caused by the epidemic to the American people. China has always taken a positive attitude towards international cooperation in prevention and control. Under the current situation, China and the United States should unite against the epidemic. The health departments and prevention and control experts of China and the United States have actually maintained communication on the epidemic situation and prevention and control cooperation. China is willing to continue to share information and experience with the United States without reservation.
According to Xinhuanet's report on April 26, Huang Ping, Chinese consul general in New York, said in a video conference held by the Schiller Society that China and the United States should jointly respond to the new coronary pneumonia epidemic and lead countries through the crisis. Huang Ping said, "Despite the difficulties facing Sino-US relations in recent years, the two largest economies should abandon their differences at a critical moment and focus on cooperation."
According to preliminary statistics, China has provided more than 2.46 billion masks, about 5,000 ventilators, 258 million pairs of gloves, 29.2 million pieces of protective clothing, and 3.13 million pairs of goggles for the United States.

Thank you to the Chinese government, Ma Yun Charity Foundation, Cai Chongxin Charity Foundation and Chinese Consul General in New York Huang Ping. Como also thanked China for its cooperation at the press conference, saying the matter was of great significance to the state.
According to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on April 7, Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Zhao Lijian responded to Como ’s position at a regular press conference. Zhao Lijian said that some Chinese provinces and cities, non-governmental friendship groups, institutions and enterprises have provided medical supplies to the US. China understands the current difficult situation of the United States and is willing to continue to provide support within its ability.
On April 23, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang said that US politicians are devoting their energy to "scrapping the pot" everywhere and shirk their responsibilities, which will not help alleviate the domestic epidemic situation in the United States or international cooperation in the fight against epidemics. Geng Shuang also said that China decided to increase the amount of USD 30 million in cash on the basis of the USD 20 million in cash donations to WHO for the prevention and control of the new coronary pneumonia epidemic and support the development of health systems in developing countries.
Former US Secretary of State Albright said in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation that some countries are trying to "dump the pot" in China, but they are still using Chinese-made masks and are still waiting for the success of China's vaccine development. Albright pointed out that a big country like the United States needs to have partners in dealing with major issues, rather than making enemies everywhere.
