While infections and deaths associated with the novel coronavirus continue to rise in many regions, the global pandemic is expected to slow down this summer, said a leading Shanghai expert during a live broadcast on Wednesday.

Zhang Wenhong, leader of the Shanghai team of experts in the treatment of COVID-19 cases, said the pandemic is likely to be brought under control in the coming months. The United States has started to take action against the contagion's spread, and this will also help with the slowdown of the disease's spread, he said.

"The next two to three months will be critical for the world to jointly combat the spread of the virus," Zhang said, as he shared clinical treatment and research experience from Shanghai and throughout China with more than 10,000 overseas counterparts, before fielding questions.
