  • Working together to fight against the virus

    At the moment, the outbreak of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has been a major topic in China and around the world. 

    Like many Chinese, I closely follow the daily development of the situation and feel worried about the increasing number of infections. Unfortunately, Finland confirmed the first case on January 29. A Chinese tourist was quarantined and diagnosed positive in Lapland, making Finland the third country with a confirmed case in Europe.
