GENEVA: The chief of the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Tuesday (March 11) that Covid-19 cases in China have been in significant decline, following the country's "impressive" efforts in containing the virus.

"What we saw in terms of experience from China is really impressive. Now the outbreak in China is on the decline, and there is a significant decline. The virus is hammered, and on a retreat. We're very glad that it's reversing and the viruses retreating (in China)," said WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in response to questions from Xinhua.
