  2. The primary purpose of the Chinese government is to stop spreading of the Coronavirus disease and save the life of infected people. On both accounts, China is doing that. So far, the rest of the world seems in good hand that each country can control and monitor the situation. All but one death in the Philippine is in the process of recovery.
