The UCLG Presidency and members from all around the world stand in solidarity with the people of the city of Wuhan and its local government authorities who are showing extraordinary efforts to face the coronavirus outbreak.
We also stand with all Chinese members of UCLG, and all cities of the world who are facing this difficult challenge.
UCLG leadership calls for coordinated multi-level action, and for the involvement of the local governments in the emergency plans.
The World Organization stands vigilantly in this call, and remains at the full service of its members should there be any joint efforts to be undertaken.
We share our deepest sympathies and strength to those affected by the virus, and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the decease.
