"They know how to care and keep people alive and they do it successfully".

Bruce Aylward, a Canadian epidemiologist who led the WHO-China Joint Mission on COVID-19, stunned skeptics on China's resources to treat patients by saying he would want to be treated in China if he caught the virus.

Aylward made the comment during a news conference in Geneva on Feb 26, where he also said China has been investing massively on disease control and treatment that is even unreachable for Europe.
