BEIJING, March 24 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese mainland spokesperson on Tuesday said the mainland has been sharing the coronavirus outbreak information with Taiwan all along, dismissing the "covering-up" slander drummed up by certain Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials.

The mainland has sent Taiwan 101 notifications as of Tuesday including the information about its sharing of virus genome sequences with the World Health Organization, said Zhu Fenglian, spokesperson for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, adding that the mainland has acted in a highly responsible manner for the sake of the health and well-being of the people in Taiwan, but the DPP had not told the truth.

Zhu asked the DPP officials to immediately stop spreading "political virus," saying that the use of the epidemic to stir up cross-Strait confrontations at a time when the outbreak in Taiwan is picking up is shameless and disgusting.
