He joined a table-top exercise on "health emergency responses to mass gathering" at the meeting and shared China’s practices in multi-department prevention and control mechanisms and health emergency response, as well as infectious disease information monitoring and risk communication.

The vice-minister also called on all parties to work together to strengthen coordination and cooperation with international bodies like the World Health Organization.
