China is happy to share the results of clinical trials on drugs to treat novel coronavirus with the rest of the world in the effort to fight against the disease, a medical expert said at a recent news conference held by the State Council Information Office.

Cao Bin, vice-president of China-Japan Friendship Hospital, said that Chinese doctors are testing the performance of lopinavir and remdesivir on patients with COVID-19, and the clinical trial on lopinavir has been finished.

Cao also said there are two trials on remdesivir underway on the Chinese mainland -- one includes mild to moderate cases and the other is aimed at severe and critical cases -- and it seems both are going on successfully.
