Flight Ban Delays Return of Chinese Medical Team

In another development, the Managing Director of China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC), Mr. Michael Yigao, has said the ban on commercial flights has delayed the return of the Chinese medical team to China, saying the experts, who arrived the country on April 8, were in the company's care.

Yigao told journalists yesterday that the team came into the country to especially help CCECC fight the disease and protect its employees.

"The team had a telecast meeting with the Minister of Health and some doctors around the country and shared their experience in China on how they're fighting the virus and the meeting was very positive.

"They are here with us and have continued to teach our staff how to protect themselves because protection and prevention are more important than the treatment.

"Most of the workers understand the situation now and they know the risk, so they follow the proper procedures and cooperate with their instructors," he said.

He said the medical experts would be heading home as soon as the ban on commercial flights to China is lifted.

"Right now, commercial flight to China is not open, but when flights are open again, we're considering the team going back to China," he stated.
