In China, important progress has been made in the prevention and control of the epidemic, and economic and social order is quickly being restored, but outside China the epidemic is spreading at an alarming rate.
"The virus recognizes no borders, and neither does love or friendship. To express our gratitude to overseas partners and support them in fighting the epidemic, the Shandong Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism raised funds to purchase epidemic prevention materials such as masks to donate to overseas partners to help them fight the COVID-19 epidemic," said an official from the Shandong Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism.
"The selflessness displayed during this outbreak has given hope to the idea of a shared future for mankind. We build stronger friendships and lay a more solid foundation of mutual trust for further cooperation in the future."
