How was China kinda slowed it down then? No new cases from the past few days.
After gap of 3 days, China reports first local case - Times of India

US has started a trial plus they are going ahead with some medicine starting with C, Trump and Musk are betting on it. I have no idea whether it will work or not.
Doesn't matter what they try,it is not possible to complete human drug trials for such a disease vaccine in 10-12 months(it is not like some equipment production/research where you can divide the work to speedup the process).

Virus epicentre Wuhan, however, has not reported a new coronavirus case for the fourth consecutive day....

Few cases will be there but they have gone through the worst part.
True that. But they are trying and with people like Musk and Gates they have high chance of success as compared to other countries.

Success doesn't matter,time taken will not be less than 12 months & it only needs one country/team to succeed.

I highly doubt that, China and NK don't care about PR at all.
On the contrary, they are highly sensitive to how the outside world perceives them. NK goes to great length to give the image of being very modern but their buildings are designed to look good from the outside only but inside is unfinished and empty. Among other things.

Even if we assume China isn't lying about the numbers they could probably be able to contain the virus, since its a communist nation where government can enforce rules strictly.
India on the other hand just can't.

Not just communist but communist with enough resources. Vietnam is also a communist country just like China but it can't come even close to China in terms of enforcing such wide scale public bans.

I wonder where are those people who say that US has the most advanced healthcare, period.
There is a difference between having most advanced healthcare tech(which US does have) & most advanced healthcare system on a whole for public(in which case US ranked 29th out of 195 nations in Healthcare Access and Quality (HAQ) Index 2016 report,India ranked 145 btw behind Bangladesh,Sri Lanka & Bhutan).

I don't understand and pardon me for deviating from the topic, but their healthcare is not available for the public? Money is the reason?

Healthcare is available to Public in US has the most sophisticated healthcare in the world. and they have very stringent laws for any healthcare violations.
First each & every individual must have a valid Health Insurance (cannot skip that).
Cost of healthcare is high. per clinical visit is $100 (7.6k INR). So, people opt for healthcare insurance there. Many Indians flyback to India as they can't afford the charges of treatment in US.
Healthcare providers, payors have to follow the rules otherwise they are charged with hefty fines worth millions. You won't find a jholachaap doctor in US.
