China's measures to tackle the COVID-19 epidemic are the most cost-effective and have worked the best for the country, a spokesperson said Saturday.
"Since the onset of the epidemic, China has put people and people's lives front and center," said Sun Yeli, spokesperson for the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. "We give top priority to people's health and safety. This is part and parcel of our epidemic response efforts."
Dynamic zero-COVID policy has been adopted in light of China's national realities and it is a science-based policy, Sun added.
