Chinese Government Has Announced Assistance To 82 Countries
And International Organizations To Fight Against Covid-19
On March 20, a spokesperson from China's foreign ministry hosted a regular press conference.
The spokesman said that the international community provided timely political support and material donations to China at the time of the most serious Covid-19. At present, China is also actively extending assistance to the countries suffering from Covid-19.
China mainly provides assistance in four aspects:
first, intergovernmental assistance:
Chinese government has announced assistance to 82 countries, the World Health Organization and the African Union, including testing reagents, masks and protective clothing. Many of the aid has been delivered to the destination.
Second, medical technical cooperation:
China and other countries are sharing China's diagnosis and treatment programs, and holding video conferences with the health experts from many countries and international organizations. At the same time, China has sent medical expert groups to Iran, Iraq and Italy.
Third, assistance from local governments:
China's local governments have donated materials to cities in South Korea, Japan, Italy and other countries.
Fourth, non governmental assistance:
Many enterprises and non-governmental organizations in China have started to provide donations to the countries concerned.
The Chinese expert group supporting Serbia has gathered many medical backbones in Guangdong Province. Serbia's president, Vuccic, took the prime minister and several government officials to meet China's medical aid team at the airport and elbowed members of the team instead of shaking hands. At the scene, the five-star red flag and the Serbian flag were tied together. The president kissed the five-star red flag. There was a live broadcast on local TV.
The slogan on China's aid to South Korea is: the people of China，Japan and South Korea are like pines and cypresses standing together in the cold winter, watching each other and overcoming difficulties together.
A medical team from Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province, China, was sent to Pakistan for help.
China's powerful Shanghai medical team has been sent to Iran, a country with serious Covid-19, for rescue.
The Chinese expert team supporting Iraq is mainly from Guangzhou Medical University, where academician Zhong Nanshan works.
The Chinese expert team supporting Italy is mainly from West China Hospital of Sichuan University. Together with the experts and medical staff from Sichuan Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention, they have arrived in Italy with relevant rescue materials.
While the Chinese government actively helped other countries fight against Covid-19, some medical universities in China started the education and training of medical talents, including SP teaching, using the internet teaching mode. At the same time, some medical education associations and medical universities in China are also actively organizing online video conferences to discuss the impact of covid-19 on SP teaching in China and its future work.
