Pres. Duterte: China willing to help Philippines overcome coronavirus pandemic

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte during his announcement in MAlacanang Thursday night intimated that he had a call from Chinese President  stating that they are willing to extend help to the country should the need arises.
This offer was relayed when the government placed Metro Manila under “community quarantine” to arrest the spreading of the coronavirus disease in the National Capital Region.

"[Chinese] President Xi Jinping...said he is willing to help. All we have to do is to ask. Ako ang tingin ko (In my view), maybe there will be a time, if things deteriorate, that I have to call on China to help," Duterte said in the briefing in Malacañang.
"To the Chinese government, to the people, especially to President Xi Jinping, thank you for the consoling words and maybe, I hope that it would not reach to that point but maybe we will need your help," he added.

It is in Wuhan, China the epicenter of the coronavirus disease outbreak, and around two-thirds of the global cases of the disease have been in China.
The Philippines meanwhile just placed the capital region under strict travel restrictions to contain the fast-spreading COVID-19, which has infected at least 52 people in the country, with at least 5 deaths.
