China donates medical supplies to Cambodia's Phnom Penh Capital Hall for COVID-19 fight

April 22, 2020


Abstract : China on Tuesday donated a batch of medical supplies to Cambodia's Phnom Penh Capital Hall to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

PHNOM PENH, April 21 (Xinhua) -- China on Tuesday donated a batch of medical supplies to Cambodia's Phnom Penh Capital Hall to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chinese Ambassador Wang Wentian handed over the medical items to Phnom Penh Governor Khuong Sreng at a ceremony held at the Phnom Penh Capital Hall.

The supplies, including 20,000 surgical masks, 3,000 N95 masks, and 500 protective suits, were donated by Shanghai to Phnom Penh.

Speaking at the event, Ambassador Wang said China firmly supported Cambodia's efforts to combat and overcome the pandemic and would continue to provide medical supplies to the country upon its request.

Meanwhile, Wang expressed his gratitude to Cambodia for voicing full support to China in February when the country was in an all-out fight against the virus.

For his part, Sreng extended his sincere and heartfelt thanks to China for donating the medical items, saying that they were very useful for Phnom Penh.

"This medical assistance truly shows China's generosity and brotherhood between Cambodia and China," he said. "A friend in need is a friend indeed. We will keep this generous help in mind forever."

The batch of medical supplies was just one of many donations that the Chinese government and people had provided to Cambodia for COVID-19 fight.

Last month, China had sent to the country a team of doctors specializing in fighting against COVID-19, along with tons of necessary medical equipment and supplies.

Cambodia has so far recorded 122 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with 110 patients cured, according to the Ministry of Health on Tuesday.
