Polish President Andrzej Duda in a Monday message sent to the president of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping offered words of sympathy to the families of Wuhan coronavirus victims.
"On behalf of the Polish nation and myself, I would like to offer my sympathy and support to the families of those who died as a result of coronavirus infection and my best wishes for a quick recovery for all infected," the Polish president wrote.
Duda added that he has been closely following the development of events related to the spread of the disease and appreciates the Chinese leader's prompt reaction "which no doubt prevented the further uncontrolled development of the epidemic and thus saved many lives, both in the People's Republic of China and in other countries."
He also said that he was "impressed by the efficient organisation of the activities of the relevant medical services, who in this emergency situation immediately hurried to help all those in need."
In his message, the Polish president praised the residents of Wuhan and the entire Hubei province "for courage and solidarity."
He also wrote that he was "deeply convinced" that the actions taken so far by the Chinese authorities would soon bring the desired effect and put the epidemic under control.
