To present essential and pragmatic lessons for other countries which are still in pandemic and to prepare for future affections diseases, risk mitigation measures took by Chinese government during the COVID-19 pandemic period were assorted and included. Pertinent information was arranged in three parts, pre-pandemic, during-pandemic and after-pandemic. In the first period, stockpile building, public health workforce training and simulation training in China may account for the in-time mitigation. Although these resources could be insufficient in some severely afflicted areas, resources in other places were concentrated to relieve local stress and prevent further expansion of the disease, and the overall training was in an escalating trend. In the second period, advanced technology to detect the virus and timely risk communications in China were of great importance to go through the obstacle, although initial risk communications were not proper in Wuhan, the first outbreak place in China. In the third period, specific vaccine administration, quarantine policies and contact tracing method were timely and effective to depress the risk in China. Measures took in the spread period are of potential use for the infected countries to stop the disease in a shorter time. And the actions in the first two periods instruct all nations to build up a more solid public health network and to develop the assessment of pathogens in advance to prepare for future threats from some unknown or similar infectious diseases.
