In a 70-minute speech trumpeting his nation's achievements in overcoming the outbreak, Mr Xi told an audience of top officials, party cadres and healthcare workers that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was "the most reliable backbone of the Chinese people when a storm hits", and it was under its strong leadership that the country could emerge from the devastating crisis.

Following four months in Wuhan, the outbreak's epicenter in China, CGTN presents you a two-part documentary recounting how researchers, medical workers and ordinary people raced to the frontline to save lives.

Chinese leader Xi Jinping on Tuesday praised China's role in battling the coronavirus pandemic and expressed support for the World Health Organization, in a repudiation of United States criticism and a bid to rally domestic support for Communist Party leadership.

China organised an awards ceremony for medical professionals on Tuesday in which selected front-line workers were awarded with medals and applause for containing and handling the COVID-19 virus. Respiratory disease expert Zhong Nanshan received China's highest national honor, the Medal of the Republic, "for delivering timely information on the latest epidemic situation and leading the formulation of diagnosis and treatment guidelines".

Other than Nanshan, three others were honoured with the title of "The People's Hero". China has reported a total of 4,634 deaths from 85,144 cases of Covid-19.

The Chinese president also highlighted the people's role in the fight, lauding them for building a solid line of defense against the pandemic. "All selfishness, scapegoating and confusing right and wrong will not only hurt a country and its people, but harm people of all countries", Xi said.

"China has helped save the lives of tens of millions of people around the world with its practical actions, showing China's honest desire to build a common future and community for humanity", Xi said at a ceremony in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

State media has stressed Xi's role in China's containment of the virus.

Xi, in his almost 60-minute speech to over 2,000 health and allied services personnel at the Great Hall of the People, said: "To protect the lives of people, we will do everything".

China's gross domestic product grew by a stronger-than-expected 3.2 per cent in the second quarter of this year from a year earlier, making it the world's first major economy to rebound positively after the coronavirus pandemic struck. Xi said China would continue to support the World Health Organization in playing a "leading role in the global fight against the Covid-19 pandemic".
