China sends doctors to help HK with Covid-19 testing

China’s National Health and Family Planning Commission said in a statement on Saturday that sixty clinical professionals from mainland China are sent to Hong Kong in order to help with the mass coronavirus testing that the country is trying to implement.

Among others, a team of six medical professionals is coming directly from Wuhan to help Hong Kong colleagues who managed to convert the AsiaWorld-Expo centre into a makeshift hospital. According to the statement, the Wuhan team has experience in managing mobile "cabin hospitals," which proved crucial in the allaying the pandemic.

Chief Executive Carrie Lam stated that the central government would provide help in turning the expo site into a temporary hospital.
