In an exclusive interview with the Syrian media Motherland, Feng Yi said that since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic last year, China and Syria have supported each other and watched and helped each other.
China has provided a large amount of medical material assistance to Syria, which has enhanced the friendship between the two peoples.
In addition to providing coronavirus vaccine assistance to Syria, China also decided to assist Syria with 20 ventilators and the first batch of 750 tons of rice.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, more than 14,200 confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been reported in the Syrian government-controlled areas.
It is generally believed that Syria’s domestic epidemic prevention work is facing challenges due to multiple factors such as war and external sanctions.
