The experts will visit designated Covid-19 hospitals and make calibrated propositions for containment and treatment

A team of Chinese medical experts, who have the firsthand experience of containing coronavirus and treating the patients with remarkable success, is scheduled to arrive in Bangladesh on June 8 with a bunch of medical equipment.

Confirming arrival date of the medical team, an official said it shows one of the reflections of Chinese President Xi Jinping's assurance to the reality, reports UNB.

The team, organized by the National Health Commission, consists of 10 respiratory physicians selected by the Hainan Provincial Health Commission, according to the official at the Chinese Embassy in Dhaka. 

In their two weeks stay in Bangladesh, the experts will visit designated Covid-19 hospitals, quarantine centres, and testing centres, discuss the epidemics with Bangladeshi counterparts, and make calibrated propositions for containment and treatment.

As Bangladesh’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic continued to become fiercer, Xi Jinping, president of the People’s Republic of China, had a phone call conversation with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on May 20.

In that talk between the top leaders of the two friendly nations, President Xi reassured Prime Minister Hasina of standing side by side with Bangladesh as the truest friend in this all-out war against Covid-19. 

Many cooperative measures have been taken by the Chinese side and most of which have already been implemented in Bangladesh since the outbreak here, according to Chinese Embassy in Dhaka. 

37 more people died with coronavirus infections in the last 24 hours in Bangladesh. 

The death toll now stands at 746 and the death rate at 1.35%, according to Prof Dr Nasima Sultana, additional director general (administration) of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

2,685 have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 24 hours. With this, the total number of cases has reached 55,140.

A total of 12,510 samples were tested in 50 labs across the country in the last 24 hours.

Some 470 Covid-19 patients have recovered in the same time, taking the total number of recoveries to 11,590 and the recovery rate to 21.02%.
