As the ongoing coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continues to expand with each day, a total of 1,511,252 cases have been detected worldwide, of which 83,305 cases (5.4%) have been reported outside the China. However, the biggest change in the recent trends of the disease has been a significant decline in the incidence of coronavirus cases in China and a simultaneous rise in the cases reported from the other affected nations. Despite the success, it has been advocated that China should continue with the emergency management protocols based on the results of risk assessment in different parts of the nation. Further, it is quite obvious that we cannot succeed and sustain the gains accomplished, if we do not receive the support and involvement of the community. In conclusion, the success obtained in the containment of COVID-19 outbreak in China is an encouraging sign in the battle against the disease. However, it is the responsibility of both the affected and unaffected nations to continue to practice nonpharmacological measures and actively engage the members of the community in the containment of the infection.
