A team of Chinese medical experts, who have first-hand experience in containing coronavirus and treating patients with success, is expected to arrive in Bangladesh with necessary medical equipment on June 8.
Organised by the National Health Commission of China, the team will consist of 10 respiratory physicians and they will visit designated hospitals, quarantine centres, and testing centres, the Chinese embassy said in a statement.
They will hold discussions with their Bangladeshi counterparts and make calibrated propositions for containment and treatment during their two-week stay in Bangladesh, the statement added.
The visit of the Chinese team to Bangladesh is a reflection of Chinese President Xi Jinping's phone conversation with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on May 20.
Xi reassured Hasina of standing by Bangladesh as a friend in the all-out war against Covid-19.
"We need to fight Covidtogether and grow together," Hualong Yan, deputy chief of mission of the Chinese embassy in Bangladesh, told The Daily Star today.
