Canadian Martin Haase, who has been living in Changsha, Central China's Hunan province for 13 years, said he chose to stay in China rather than return to Canada because he believes that China is able to win the fight against the novel coronavirus pneumonia.

Haase began working in Changsha after graduating from Hunan University of Chinese Medicine.

"I was worried about the NCP outbreak at the beginning. After discussing several times with my wife on whether to return to Canada, we decided to stay in China," Haase said.

"Hunan took a quick response to contain the virus. Our residential community is well protected," he said.

While staying at home, Haase practices taiji and teaches his wife and daughter the practice.
