Venezuelan authorities reported today that a delegation of medical specialists from China arrived in the South American country to support those infected with coronavirus, which currently have 129 confirmed cases nationwide.
According to Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza “humanitarian aid from China with specialist doctors, experts and scientists related to the fight against COVID-19 is solidarity,” said the cabinet member of Nicolás Maduro, quoted by Telesur.
According to the Venezuelan official report, the Asian health authorities arrived with eight Chinese specialists in respiratory conditions to help fight COVID-19, on the third flight between the two countries to treat the health emergency.
“On behalf of President Nicolás Maduro, on behalf of the people of Venezuela, we want to thank President Xi Jinping and the people of the People’s Republic of China,” said the diplomat.
He assured that, thanks to the intervention of the Asian giant, many lives of Venezuelans will be saved. “Venezuela has been the people that will welcome them, because with the scientific knowledge and experience that China has been able to accumulate in recent months, we know that many lives of Venezuelans are going to be saved,” he said.
