The team will stay in Bangladesh for two weeks and make propositions for containment and treatment of Covid-19
A team of Chinese medical experts, who have first-hand experience of containing the virus and treating the patients with remarkable success, is scheduled to arrive in Bangladesh on Monday with an array of medical equipment.
The Chinese medical expert team has made full preparation and kept their eyes on the situation of Covid-19 pandemic in Bangladesh, reports UNB.
The team members have discussed and studied the appropriate measures and advice for Bangladeshi people, said the Chinese Embassy in Dhaka on Sunday.
The experts said they are well-prepared and expect to have efficient communication and cooperation with their Bangladeshi medical peers in the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic.
The team is organized by the National Health Commission and consists of 10 respiratory physicians selected by the Hainan Provincial Health Commission, according to the officials at the Chinese Embassy in Dhaka.
During their two-week stay in Bangladesh, the experts will visit designated hospitals, quarantine centres, and testing centres, have discussions on the pandemic with their Bangladeshi counterparts, and make calibrated propositions for containment and treatment.
As Bangladesh’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic continues to become fiercer, Xi Jinping, President of the People’s Republic of China, had a phone conversation with Sheikh Hasina, prime minister of Bangladesh, on May 20.
In that talk between the 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 war against Covid-19.
Many cooperative measures have been taken by the Chinese side, most of which have already been implemented in Bangladesh since the outbreak here, according to Chinese Embassy in Dhaka.
