Xi Jinping made a high-profile appearance on February 10, He visited a local community, hospital and the epidemic control center and he also had a tele-conference with Wuhan.
Xi’s last public appearance was on February 5 when he met Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen.
Some Western media commented that Xi might have been forced to make this appearance. The Chinese people have been suffering from this great epidemic, but there was no clear voice from the Central government saying who is actively managing the overall anti-epidemic effort. Xi, in his meeting with Tedros, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) on January 28, said that he has been in charge all along.
