A team of Chinese Doctors have set off to Ethiopia and Burkina Faso to complement efforts in combating the coronavirus pandemic.
According to China’s Foreign Ministry, the health practitioners were drawn from Sichuan Province and Tianjin Municipality and set off for their destination today.
The spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry, Zhao Lijian has said that the doctors will be sharing experiences, provide guidance and technical advice on epidemic prevention in the two countries.
Nigeria last week received 18 Chinese doctors to assist them in combating the coronavirus.
China is among the few countries that have been applauded for their deft performance in the fight against the global pandemic.
Despite being among the worst hit, the country has over the few months been able to contain and curtail the spread of the contagion.
