April 13, 2020

A team of Chinese medical experts aiding Laos in the fight against COVID-19 returned to Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province, Sunday after finishing their mission.

The team consisting of 12 professionals selected from Yunnan was established by the National Health Commission. They arrived in Laos' capital city Vientiane on March 29, with 4.17 million yuan (about 593,000 U.S. dollars) worth of anti-epidemic medical supplies donated to Laos.

According to the team leader Huang Xingli, in Laos, the experts offered more than 20 trainings in more than 30 hospitals, laboratories, ports and airports across the country and exchanged views with their Laotian counterparts on the COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment procedures and related prevention and control experience.

Also, the team provided technical guidance and advisory services on epidemic prevention to Chinese-funded enterprises, overseas Chinese and Chinese students in Laos.

At present, Laos has actively adopted the suggestions of the Chinese medical team and continuously improved its epidemic prevention and control measures.
