KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is in talks with the Chinese government to send in their medical experts here to help the country’s front liners in the fight against Covid-19 infection.

Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said this was one of the roles played by Wisma Putra in seeking assistance from foreign governments to combat the outbreak, based on the good relations between Malaysia and these countries.

“Following the discussion, it is understood that medical experts from 26 hospitals in Malaysia will hold a video conference with their counterparts in China this Thursday (March 26) to share best practices and strategies in the fight against Covid-19,” he said in a live press conference via his Facebook account, today. – Bernama
