China Turns to Video Conferencing to Provide COVID-19 Training and Assistance for Doctors in Mozambique

Chinese medical experts from the West China Hospital of Sichuan University recently convened a two-hour training session via teleconference with their counterparts from Maputo Central Hospital in Mozambique. The seminar, that reportedly came at the request of the Mozambican government, focused on the Chinese doctors’ experience in diagnosing and treating COVID-19.

The video conference in Maputo follows a similar, albeit much larger, online video training session that took place last month between Chinese health experts and 300 African medical professionals that was organized by the African Center for Disease Control.
