In the age of globalization, humankind is living in the same global village. The future of everyone around the world is closely intertwined. We have increasingly emerged as a community with common destiny in which everyone has a little bit of others. Confronted by the sudden outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), thanks to the Chinese people’s untiring efforts, the situation in China is increasingly trending in the positive direction. But unfortunately the virus is rapidly spreading across the world, and it is now a pandemic. We are once again reminded that non-traditional security threats like infectious diseases, climate change, and financial crises have no international borders, and no country can stay immune. Just as President Xi Jinping put it, “mankind is a community with a shared future. To prevail over a disease that threatens all, unity and cooperation is the most powerful weapon”.
