NANCHANG, March 26 (Xinhua) -- East China's Jingxi Province will send a group of medical experts to Uzbekistan to help the country fight against COVID-19 with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), according to the province's TCM administration.

The group consists of five doctors from the surgery, cardiovascular, emergency and lung departments of the Jiangxi Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital.

Scheduled to depart from Nanchang, the provincial capital city, the chartered flight organized by Uzbekistan for the experts has been on hold due to epidemic control and is expected to arrive in Uzbekistan within the next week.

Jiangxi has closely cooperated with Uzbekistan in the area of TCM in recent years.
