China’s 15-member medical team will be arrived in Bangladesh soon to tackle the coronavirus situation in the country; said Li Jiming, Chinese ambassador to Dhaka, on Wednesday.  

“China would be with Bangladesh as a strategic partner to win the war against coronavirus.

"We have already sent medical equipment to Bangladesh for coronavirus treatment, including testing kits, surgical masks, protective equipment," he said. “The 15-member medical team from China will arrive in Bangladesh soon.” 

Chinese doctors will help Bangladeshi doctors and nurses in coronavirus treatment. This is good news for our Bangladeshi friends. We hope Bangladesh wins this battle against coronavirus soon, he also said. 

China and Bangladesh medical experts discussed the COVID-19 situation between the two countries. Chinese doctors at the event exchanged their experiences on how they are dealing with the virus currently. At the same time, they hope to win by fighting together against the deadly virus.
