The Chinese Ambassador in Sierra Leone Hu Zhangliang has pledged China’s commitment in supporting Sierra Leone to prevent the COVID-19.
Addressing members of Sierra Leone’s Parliamentary Press Gallery Friday here, the Chinese ambassador described the fight against the virus as a battle, saying China is not only to protect its people but to safeguard global health security.
Hu said although Sierra Leone is yet to record a single case, the risk and threat posed by the COVID-19 is high, adding that China is helping the government of Sierra Leone to prevent it.
The Chinese Medical Team and other Chinese nationals are currently working hand-in-glove with Sierra Leoneans in helping to see that corona does not enter Sierra Leone.
“I am happy to see the Sierra Leoneans have been resilient. With a concerted effort, the virus will be defeated. Everyone needs to be on board,” said the ambassador, adding that he is impressed with the strong measures taken by the government to stop the potential consequences. Enditem
