After arriving in Laos, the medical expert team sent by the Chinese government has coordinated with the Lao side to fully carry out its job to join the fight against Covid-19 here, and has also helped build an “anti-epidemic shield” for cooperation projects and for the Chinese people in Laos.
Since arriving on Tuesday, the team has been to the Health Ministry to join in the regular epidemic prevention and control meetings and on-site working conferences.
They have also been going to designated hospitals and temporary hospitals for treating virus patients, quarantine centres, virus sampling sites, laboratories and border check points in Laos to exchange views and experience with their Lao colleagues and provide suggestions and training courses.
Wang Jiankun, the Chinese expert team leader, has been guiding his team to inspect the China-Laos railway construction sites and the Vientiane Saysettha Development Zone, where lots of Chinese companies gather.
Wang’s team has also presented guidance on epidemic prevention and control, conducted on-site training as well as introduced the professional knowledge and working methods on Covid-19 prevention.
Huang Hong, the general representative of the China Railway Engineering Corporation in the construction of China-Laos railway, said on Saturday that “the scientific guidance from the Chinese anti-epidemic medical expert team to Laos had strengthened their “shield” against the virus and made them more confident about overcoming the epidemic and completing the construction task on schedule.
During their inspection tours to the hospitals, the experts would cheer Chinese patients.
They would also gift some traditional herbal medicines to the patients, bringing them familiar tastes and smells from the motherland in hopes of recovery and care. — Xinhua
