PETALING JAYA: A team of medical professionals from China will be in Malaysia to give their counterparts a helping hand in managing the Covid-19 outbreak, says Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

The Health director-general said the Chinese medical team will look at the performance of Malaysia’s hospitals in handling the Covid-19 outbreak.

“They will share their experience because they’ve been through the process of handling Covid-19, ” he said at a press conference in Putrajaya on Friday (April 10).

He also said that the team's role was to “share and discuss how we can improve the efficiency of our services".

“More important is sharing their experiences for those who have managed Covid-19 in their own country, some of their practices were unprecedented, ” he said.

He added that the ministry was looking for a possible collaboration with the Chinese medical team in conducting research on the virus.

Earlier, he announced 118 new Covid-19 cases at the ministry’s daily Covid-19 media briefing.

This takes Malaysia’s total number of confirmed infections in the country to 4,346.

The country also reported three new deaths, which brings the Covid-19 death toll in Malaysia to 70 cases.
