Zhao Da, vice president of the First Hospital of Lanzhou University, shared China's experience dealing with the disease and how the hospital has responded in the face of the COVID-19 outbreak, including combined treating methods between Western and traditional Chinese medicines.

"We will keep up communication with our counterparts in foreign countries including the UK, to share our experience and make efforts in jointly combating the virus," Zhao said.

Experts from both sides also discussed other issues, including screening patients, quarantine measures, standards of confirming cases and discharging patients, treatment plans and the application of specific medicines and technology.
