That medicine will be added to the “treatment schemes” of covid patients, added the official, accompanied by the Chinese ambassador, Li Baorong. It was expressed upon receiving the seventh “humanitarian flight“from China since the beginning of the pandemic.

Counting this shipment, Venezuela received from China more than 700 tons of medicines and equipment for humanitarian aid.
