RAMALLAH/GAZA, Feb. 18 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh on Tuesday lauded the strict measures China has taken to fight the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), local media reported.

Shtayyeh visited China's representative office in Ramallah on Tuesday and met with Chinese Ambassador to Palestine Guo Wei to express solidarity with China.

He also wrote on his Facebook page that the Palestinians express full solidarity with China and the Chinese people who have been fighting the COVID-19 unremittingly.

"With a high sense of responsibility and with strict measures, China is dealing with the epidemic to protect all humanity from a fatal epidemic that is threatening the lives of people in the universe," Shtayyeh wrote on his Facebook page.

Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip also praised the way China battles the virus and deals with the crisis, said the reports.

The Ramallah-based Palestinian-Chinese Association raised the flags of China and Palestine with a huge billboard reading "Wuhan be strong."

Aadel Samarah, chairman of the association, told Xinhua that "solidarity with China is a Palestinian duty and it is a tiny response to the full Chinese support and solidarity it always provided to the Palestinian people."

In Gaza, dozens of professors, health officials, representatives of the World Health Organization and students attended a seminar organized by Al-Aqsa University on the novel coronavirus.

Speakers at the seminar briefed the audience on the dangers of the epidemic, its symptoms and the way to deal with it, while calling on people in the Gaza Strip to guard against it.
