China took some important measures to control this epidemic
In China, patients with corona-virus infection have been confirmed to isolation Centers or hospitals. The government also indicated that testing this new virus is free, and the government will pay the costs related to COVID-19 that are not covered by life insurance.
China used prefabricated modules to construct two new 1,000-1,300-bed hospitals to combat Corona-virus, one created in six days, and the second in 15 days.
This is not the first time China has established hospitals dedicated to managing outbreaks quickly. Beijing established a hospital in seven days during the 2002-2003 SARS epidemic, with 7,000 people were working day and night.
Most of the other trains continued to pass at Wuhan. Trains passed the station right through. The big inner-city trains, with the blinds running down, roll on through. Cutting off transport has been rated as one of the top three steps to control the virus spread.
People who felt they had the novel corona-virus in China will always be sent to a special fever clinic that has been common since an intense SARS epidemic was treated in the country in 2020.
Their temperature will be taken and their symptoms, medical history, travel history and any previous interaction with anyone infected with a doctor would be discussed.
Chinese officials of public health have sought to track nearly every one of the country’s 80,000- plus cases.
Emergency centers around the country monitoring the virus use big screens that show every cluster of diseases. Officials are militantly monitoring where cases travel, with governors not hesitating to call local field teams when they have concerns, as Aylward observed during his tour.
China effectively ordered a country-wide shut down, ordering every Chinese citizen to stay home until the curve was firmed. In China, you’ve got what security guards are essentially monitoring every residence to ensure they don’t breach government containment. Fifteen million people were expected to order meals online. And the meal was delivered.
When it came to the non-medical response, the sense of solidarity with Hubei was nationwide. Many provinces sent 40,000 medical staff, many of whom were volunteers, to the outbreak Center. Transport, forestry, and clerical staff were all reassigned to new positions.
Besides China’s fast-created hospitals, China also took pre-existing hospitals and reconfigured them to treat patients exclusively with the novel corona-virus, closing them off from others. You had to take entire hospitals out of general service and effectively make them emergency hospitals for COVID 19 cases. What China done, instead of making some beds that are isolation beds, is at the beginning of that ward, they constructed a wall with a window over it. They sealed the entire thing and said that an entire ward, 40 beds to 100 beds, is now an insulation unit. Speed has also been crucial to curbing the crisis.
Current Business situation in China
China is the country where the pandemic started as the number of corona-virus cases accumulated almost completely shut down in late January. With new diseases diminishing, factories are resuming, shops are reopening, and people are outdoors venturing. After the two months of lock-down in several areas of the country, China appears to be returning to business, with significant indicators such as demand for electricity and steel and automotive manufacturing returning to levels not far from normal. It appears the drastic measures put the virus under control. Infections spread locally have declined, and a lockout is removed. But the lockout also brought development to a standstill for weeks on end in most of the world’s second-largest economy, and is expected to result in China’s first decades-long contraction. Goldman Sachs analysts recently forecast that China’s GDP will decline by 9 per cent in the first quarter of the year, compared to the same time in 2019. Yet restarting factories and getting back to work puts China on a shaky course.
The pandemic threatens to wreak havoc all over the world, raising concerns of a possible second wave of outbreaks as people come back from abroad and bring the virus along. China’s economy-saving strategy relies on a slew of policies and campaigns designed to drive people back to work, cultivate corporate trust at home and abroad, and shield as many firms as possible from failure. In addition to spending billions of dollars on medical supplies and services, the State has poured money into infrastructure programs to build jobs. It also reduced taxes on small businesses and allowed banks to delay loan payments to distressed households or companies as a way to help them overcome the economic consequences. It comes as no surprise that industries and product classes are emerging at varying speeds, requiring distinct approaches. In the first two weeks that China’s epidemic has intensified but leading sectors such as software and services and healthcare equipment and services have recovered, stock prices have dropped across all sectors within a few days and have since risen by an average of
12 per cent. The majority of sectors recovered more gradually but within a few weeks exceeded prior rates.
And the toughest-hit industries — such as transportation, retail, and oil, comprising 28 percent of China’s largest stock market capitalization — are still down by at least 5 percent, displaying only modest signs of recovery.

The insurance industry is traditionally conservative but Ant Financial has added free corona-virus coverage to its offerings in response to the crisis. The activity fulfilled a need for a customer while fostering recognition of the online services of the business and enhancing customer loyalty. Relative to the previous month, it expects a 30 per cent rise in health insurance revenue in February. Now that the infection rate has decreased, many parts of the country are removing their lock-downs, eliminating road barricades and encouraging people to travel more freely in places where the virus seems to have run it’s course, as long as they have reported evidence that they’re safe.
The Government makes special provisions for employees in some situations. For example, according to the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, Beijing has instructed railway and airline companies to arrange special trains and flights to bring migrant workers from “the door of their house to the factory gate.
Employees were unable to carry out their daily operations in hard hit industries, such as restaurants. Some innovative Chinese firms, rather than furloughs or layoffs, deliberately reassigned workers to new and useful tasks, such as recovery planning, or even loaned them to other businesses. For example, more than 40 restaurants, hotels, and cinema chains streamlined their staffing to free up a significant proportion of their workforce in reaction to a drastic fall in sales.
Meanwhile analysts and academics warn that the extreme pressure to restart research, combined with fear of a second outbreak, may produce a skewed image of what is actually happening on the ground.
