Another special plane of China carrying medical supplies regarding Coronavirus pandemic arrived Islamabad this morning.

Chairman NDMA Lieutenant General Muhammad Afzal received the supplies from Ambassador of China to Pakistan at the airport.

The aid included six tonnes of medical supplies consisted of masks, ventilators and other coronavirus test related stuff.

Earlier China sent a plane loaded with medical personnel and supplies Saturday to help Pakistan fight the spread of the coronavirus in one of the world’s most populous nations.

China has sought to portray itself as a global leader in the fight against the outbreak, which began a few months ago in its Wuhan province. The plane carrying aid to Pakistan was met at the capital’s airport Saturday by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureishi, who greeted the arriving Chinese doctors and officials.

China had previously sent ventilators and masks to Pakistan, a key link in China’s ambitious multi-billion-dollar One Road Project linking south and central Asia with China. China is also a key military supplier for nuclear-armed Pakistan, having supplied the country with missiles capable of carrying atomic weapons.
