PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia, April 20 (Xinhua) -- A team of medical experts sent by the Chinese government met with Malaysian health experts and medical personnel on Monday to share China's experiences in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Chinese experts met with Malaysia's Health Minister Adham Baba and other senior health officials, and also held a video conference session with health experts and doctors from more than two dozen public hospitals.
Chen Chaw Min, secretary-general of Malaysia's health ministry, hoped the experiences shared by the Chinese experts could help Malaysia to better address the pandemic.
