Chinese medical team donates protective equipment to hospital in Botswana
FRANCISTOWN, Botswana, Jan. 29, 2022 (BSS/Xinhua) - The 16th Chinese medical
team to Botswana on Friday donated a consignment of personal protective
equipment to Nyangabgwe Referral Hospital, located in Botswana's second
largest city Francistown.
The items, including face masks, isolation clothes, disposable protective
clothing and face shields, will go a long way in easing the shortage of
personal protective clothing at the hospital.
"Shortage of personal protective equipment becomes a bar to the containment
of COVID-19," Wu Zhaohui, the leader of the 16th China Medical Team in
Francistown, said at the donation ceremony.
He said the donated medical supplies can help protect medical staff and
thus are instrumental in controlling the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. A
total of 21 members of the 16th Chinese medical team are working at the
Nyangabgwe Referral Hospital.
