Watch CNBC's full interview with Vice President Mike Pence

Vice President Mike Pence sits down with CNBC's Wilfred Frost to discuss jobs, the economy, a growing deficit and more.

Vice President Mike Pence said Beijing has demonstrated “an unprecedented level of transparency” with world health officials in dealing with the new, fast-spreading coronavirus.

“It’s heartbreaking but we stand ready with China to provide them any and all support,” he said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.”

Health officials around the world are also scrambling to stop the spread of the new virus, which was discovered Dec. 31 in the Chinese city of Wuhan in Hubei province.

China’s National Health Commission has raised its confirmed coronavirus cases in the country to 31,161. The death toll rose to 636, with one additional fatality in the Philippines and one in Hong Kong. Eleven cases have been reported across the United States.

The Chinese government has put several preventative measures in place, including issuing travel bans and monitoring citizens for fever and coughs. Several retailers have closed stores. While health officials believe the number of actual coronavirus cases to be much larger, some have praised China, Pence among them, for its quick reporting and its willingness to share information about the outbreak.

“We think that China has demonstrated an unprecedented level of transparency” with world health officials, Pence said.

However, a Wuhan doctor who sounded the alarm on social media in December about the new coronavirus was reprimanded by the police in January for spreading “illegal and false” information. The doctor, ophthalmologist Li Wenliang, died of the illness this week.

In the CNBC interview, Pence referred to Thursday’s phone call between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping, after which Trump tweeted that China will “be successful” in getting control over the deadly coronavirus.

“Trump made it clear that the United States is ready, willing and able to deploy resources,” Pence added.

Medical experts have compared the current coronavirus outbreak to the 2002-2003 SARS epidemic, which also began in China. At the time, the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome sickened nearly 8,100 people and caused 774 deaths. That means the virus killed roughly 1 in 10 infected people. The new coronavirus has a much lower mortality of rate of about 2% — and it may be even lower, if the confirmed cases are indeed under-reported.

Even after SARS had spread beyond China and around the world, Beijing sought to conceal the number of actual cases and worked meticulously to avoid detection by World Health Organization experts. It wasn’t until a physician spoke out that the concealment became known.

China has said this time will be different. Last month, the ruling Communist Party’s central political and legal affairs commission warned that “whoever deliberately delays and conceals reports will forever be nailed to history’s pillar of shame.” At the time, Xi said people’s health must be put first. “It is necessary to release epidemic information in a timely manner and deepen international cooperation.”

By sharing information quickly, health experts can work to stop the spread of the disease and drugmakers can begin working on possibles vaccines.

WATCH: Vice President Mike Pence slams Nike, NBA for ‘siding with’ China over Hong Kong tweet

Vice President Mike Pence said Nike is “checking its social conscience at the door” when it comes to China and the dispute over the Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey's now-deleted tweet supporting the Hong Kong protests. During a speech at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C., Pence called out Nike for removing Rockets gear from its Chinese stores amid the tweet controversy. Pence also blamed the NBA for not standing up to China’s criticism. “In siding with the Chinese Communist Party and silencing free speech, the NBA is acting like a wholly-owned subsidiary of that authoritarian regime,” Pence said.

Pence calls out Nike, NBA for kowtowing to China

(24 Oct 2019) In a highly critical speech at a delicate time in U.S.-China relations, Vice President Mike Pence sounded an alarm Thursday about Beijing's human rights policies, economic actions and influence campaigns.
Pence spoke Thursday at the Wilson Center in Washington as the Trump administration and the Chinese government work to negotiate a trade deal.
Pence called out Beijing's recent actions in Hong Kong, saying, nothing in the past year has put on display the Chinese Communist Party's antipathy to liberty so much as the unrest there.
The vice president told Hong Kong's democracy activists that the U.S. stands with them.  We are inspired by you and we urge you to stay on the path of non-violent protest, he said.
Pence also warned China the U.S. would have a harder time reaching a trade deal if authorities resort to the use of violence against protesters.
Pence also took a swipe at Nike and the NBA, saying that far too often American corporations kowtow to the lure of cash from Chinese markets and remain silent about censorship and repression.
Pence singled out the shoe company for removing Houston Rockets merchandise from stores in China after the team's general manager angered the Chinese government with a tweet supporting anti-government protesters in Hong Kong.
He said the NBA was acting like a wholly owned subsidiary of China's authoritarian regime for failing to stand up to the government's criticism of Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey.
Nike promotes itself as a so called 'social-justice champion,' but when it comes to Hong Kong, it prefers checking its social conscience at the door, Pence said.
Pence was taking the role of tough cop in his policy speech against China in contrast to President Donald Trump's good cop approach to forging a personal relationship with President President Xi Jinping.
But the speech came at a sensitive time in U.S.-China trade talks and the vice president had to find a way to be firm with Beijing without blasting it so hard that it jeopardizes progress made on trade.
