Chinese authorities earlier stated that the number of registered cases of the new coronavirus across the entire nation had increased to 4,515, and placed the current death toll at 106.

China has all the necessary means and resources to fight the new coronavirus, Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi said on Tuesday during a meeting with WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom.

Similarly, Deputy Foreign Minister Ma Zhaoxu said that China has both experience and a powerful scientific and technology sector, which has been built over 70 years to win this war against the epidemic.

Speaking at a meeting with representatives of foreign embassies in Beijing, the minister thanked all countries and the World Health Organisation (WHO) on behalf of China for understanding and supporting the measures taken in connection with the outbreak of a new type of coronavirus.
