Czech Support against Coronavirus

Post Time: 2020-02-12
 Tens of thousands of medical supplies such as protective suits, masks, and goggles have been sent to China in batches after being packed at the Belt and Road Czech Station. In recent days, the outbreak of pneumonia caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus has led to a lack of medical supplies all over China. With its advantages of overseas warehousing and logistics, the Czech Station immediately responded to the call of the Party committee and the government of China by purchasing medical supplies and assisting Chinese expats in the Czech Republic in storing and transporting such medical supplies.

Chinese expat groups in the Czech Republic such as the Qingtian Association of the Czech Republic collected 780,000 medical masks for the epidemic in China. The staff of the Czech Station and Chinese expat volunteers spent three days and nights sorting and packing 250,000 masks, which were donated by Ms. Liao Jilian, into 250 boxes. These masks were transported to Prague Airport at 8:30 a.m. local time on February 3 and carried by Chinese passengers to Beijing through flight HU7938 of Hainan Airlines.

“The Czech Station gave us great support. They provided us with storage space of 1000 m2 for free, assisted us in completing procedures for export declaration, and helped us contact logistics and transportation companies,” said Chinese expats in the Czech Republic. They also added that only when their motherland is strong and safe can they feel safe and secure overseas, so the donation was what they felt they should do for the epidemic in China.

The Czech Station has also purchased hundreds of protective medical suits and tens of thousands of medical surgical caps from other countries. These medical supplies will be donated to China’s medical institutions and transported to China in batches. (By Wu Fengyu, translated by Jin Haiqiong, edited by Kendra Fiddler)
