BEIJING/PHNOM PENH (Xinhua): Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen arrived in China on Wednesday (Feb 5) for a visit. Chinese State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi greeted Hun Sen as he arrived at Beijing Capital International Airport.

Separately, 86 Cambodian families whose children had received free heart surgeries in China had donated more than 5,000 masks to Chinese doctors to help them fight against the novel coronavirus, Xinhua reports from Phnom Penh.

Chea Monyrith, manager of the congenital heart disease project in Cambodia, said the families sent a total of 5,021 masks, including 5,001 surgical masks, to Fuwai Yunnan Cardiovascular Hospital in southwest China's Yunnan province on Tuesday.

Demand for masks has soared in China due to the coronavirus outbreak. The overall confirmed cases on the Chinese mainland had reached 24,324 by the end of Tuesday, China's National Health Commission said, noting that a total of 490 people had died of the disease. - Xinhua
