The Chinese government has sent a team of medical experts to Myanmar to help the country cope with the COVID-19 epidemic, Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian announced Wednesday.

The team, organized by the National Health Commission, consists of 12 experts selected by the health commission of Yunnan Province. The team left for Myanmar earlier in the day, Zhao said.

The experts specializing in respiratory disease, infectious disease, intensive care, testing and traditional Chinese medicine are from two hospitals in Yunnan and the Yunnan provincial center for disease control and prevention, according to the province.

The medical team left Kunming, capital of Yunnan, with medical supplies donated by the province, including nucleic acid testing kits, 8,500 N95 masks, 60,000 disposable masks and 5,500 protective suits.

They will share their experience and provide suggestions to their counterparts in Myanmar on COVID-19 prevention, diagnosis, treatment and medical staff training.
