       Nothing, not even mountains and oceans, can separate people with shared goals and vision. Ever since the COVID-19 outbreak, Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries have expressed solidarity with China. Most heads of state and government, other political leaders, as well as people from all walks of society in the region, have expressed their deep-felt condolences and support for China’s campaign against the epidemic, as well as their praise to China’s success in containing the virus.

       During China’s toughest hours against the pandemic, many countries in the LAC region maintained calm and rational, without over-reacting to travel or trade bans. Many countries offered their hands with much-needed aid. They provided masks, protective gears and other relief-related supplies to China even when they had limited medical and health capabilities. These actions showed the deep-seated friendship between the LAC and the Chinese government and people.  

       Currently, as COVID-19 reaches its full-blown pandemic phase, the situation in the LAC region is becoming more serious every day, with countries struggling to combat the virus. At this critical juncture, China has already delivered disaster-relief to and carried out international cooperation with the 24 countries that it has formed diplomatic ties with in the region, as well as countries that have yet to establish diplomatic ties. China is now actively cooperating with the LAC region, including providing them with valuable political support, material and technical assistance, as well as its experience of disease prevention and control.

       Virus knows no borders, love knows no boundaries. During this special period, China and the LAC countries will continue to exemplify the ideas of China- LAC Community of Shared Future through their actions.

       In this regard, CIIS has recently set up a research group chaired by President Qi Zhenhong to closely follow the COVID-19 pandemic and conduct relative researches. Hereby, we are releasing the seventh edition of the report series: Together, China and Latin America and the Caribbean Countries Fight Against COVID-19.
