China is actively sharing its experience in fighting the novel coronavirus with the rest of the world through a variety of media, including videos and books.

On Feb. 15, the China Hunan Provincial Science and Technology Department released the country’s first cartoon micro-video that outlines the transmission routes, susceptible population groups, and prevention methods for novel coronavirus in English.

Meanwhile, a documentary on epidemic prevention stories in the Chinese city of Nanjing, filmed by the Japanese director Takeuchi Ryo, recently became popular in Japan. His short film documents how people in the city are staying at home to ensure everyone’s safety and taking online courses amid the pneumonia outbreak. “I hope that the film will help Japanese people learn from China’s experience in fighting the epidemic,” he said.

The People’s Medical Publishing House Co., Ltd., together with the Chinese Preventive Medicine Association, published the English version of the guidance for the coronavirus disease online on March 1 for foreigners to read for free.

Meanwhile, the Shaanxi Normal University General Publishing House Co., Ltd. has published an English guide providing psychological assistance for foreign readers amid the pneumonia outbreak.

On Feb. 29, Zhang Mingzhou, president of the International Board on Books for Young People, called on Chinese writers and publishers to donate the copyrights on children’s books about the novel coronavirus, and translators to volunteer to translate them into foreign languages to help children stricken by the pneumonia.

By the end of March 3, more than 40 publishing houses responded to Zhang’s initiative, with over 100 translators in English, Japanese, and other languages volunteering to translate the books.
