Since the COVID-19 outbreak began, China has made tremendous efforts to contain its spread. Now that China has largely controlled local transmission of the virus, let's go over some key terms from its fight against the contagion.

After the outbreak emerged, China established a quasi-wartime work mechanism led by the country's top leader.

Since Jan 25, President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, chaired 10 meetings of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, three meetings of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, and gave clear instructions on epidemic prevention and control work.

On Jan 25, a leading group for epidemic control, headed by Premier Li Keqiang, was set up by the CPC Central Committee.

Two days later a central government work group, headed by Vice-Premier Sun Chunlan, arrived in Wuhan to guide epidemic control work in Hubei.

In addition, a joint working mechanism comprising 32 central government departments was established to promote coordination among various departments for epidemic control and prevention work.
