Huazong to host online public forum with Chinese anti-Covid-19 medical experts on Thursday (April 30)

KUALA LUMPUR: The Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia (Huazong) will collaborate with the Chinese Embassy in Malaysia to host a live public forum with the Chinese anti-Covid-19 medical team, who is currently in the country, on Thursday (April 30).

Announcing this, Huazong president Tan Sri T.C. Goh (pic) noted that the forum is aimed at allowing Malaysians to have a better understanding of Covid-19 and how best to contain it, through sharing of the medical professionals’ knowledge and experience in fighting the pandemic back in China.

The online forum will be conducted in two sessions. The first session will be from 9am to noon for the public to call in at hotline number 03-2175 5550 on matters concerning Covid-19.

"It will be attended by our very own medical experts. The second session will be in the form of online video conferencing with the Chinese medical experts, from 5pm to 7pm. It will also be streamed live via Huazong’s official Facebook page," he said in a statement on Sunday (April 26).

The online public forum is facilitated by Huawei Malaysia branch using the Zoom video conferencing application via Facebook. And due to limitation of participants by Zoom, the public can also participate in the online forum through its live stream on Huazong’s official Facebook page.

Goh said Huazong was happy that the eight-member Chinese anti-Covid-19 medical team finally arrived in the country on April 18, following the arrangements made between the government and the Chinese Embassy in Malaysia.

“This was also in line with Huazong’s earlier proposal to the government to invite the Chinese medical experts to come in to share their valuable knowledge, expertise and experience in fighting Covid-19 with our health authorities,” he said.

According to the introduction by Chinese Embassy in Malaysia, the team of eight medical experts is led by Dr Li Jun, the chief physician of the Integrated Chinese and Western Emergency Medicine and vice-president of Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The others include associate chief physician of the intensive care unit at Guangdong Provincial People’s Hospital Dr Wen Miaoyun, director of the Nosocomial Infection Control Department Dr Zhang Youping and associate chief physician of Respiratory and Critical Medicine Department Dr Yang Shifang.

The rest are associate chief physician of Infection Department Dr Luo Xiaodan, senior psychologist Dr Liu Xiangxin, chief physician of Guangdong Provincial Centre for Disease Control and Prevention Dr Liu Tao and associate chief technician in virology and deputy director of General Study Office of Guangdong Provincial Institute of Public Health Dr Sun Jiufeng.

They were specially selected by the Chinese government based on their work and experience in fighting Covid-19. Some of them even participated in the fight against Covid-19 at its epicentre in Wuhan province.

On behalf of Huazong and the people of Malaysia, the Chinese community especially, Goh also extended his utmost gratitude to the team of Chinese medical experts for their participation and contributions in the fight against Covid-19, during their two-week stint in Malaysia.

He also called on the Chinese community to seize the rare opportunity to actively participate in the online discussion with the Chinese anti-Covid-19 medical team on April 30.
