Team of medical experts from China to aid Philippines to combat COVID-19 pandemic

Twelve medical experts from China are set to arrive in the Philippines on Sunday (April 5), to assist the government in responding to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak in the country according to the Chinese Embassy in  Manila.

The embassy said the medical team from China will provide technical guidance and experience sharing in epidemic prevention and control, implementation of public health policies, and medical treatment among others.

“They are good at both traditional Chinese and Western medicine, involving COVID-19 treatment, testing, disease control and other aspects, and will practically share the ‘China experience’ in the fight against COVID-19,” the embassy said.

The Department of Health (DOH) earlier said it would be preparing accommodations and translators for the team members who will share their experience in Wuhan, the central Chinese metropolis where COVID-19 first emerged late last year.

As of Friday, the Philippines confirmed 3,018 cases of the virus, with 52 recoveries and 136 deaths.
