To offer timely help and overcome hardship together, China has been fighting against the epidemic together with the world for days. Zhejiang also acts quickly to set up a medical expert team, donate anti-epidemic materials, and share experience in fighting the epidemic, which plays a significant role in international assistance against the COVID-19 outbreak. 

On March 17, Zhejiang set up a Chinese anti-epidemic medical expert team leaving for Italy to help the country battle the epidemic. The expert team consists of 12 experts from the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Zhejiang Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Zhejiang Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention and Tongde Hospital of Zhejiang Province. The team arrived in Milan on local time on March 18.

Accompanying the Zhejiang medical expert team going to Italy is a batch of medical supplies donated by Zhejiang Province and urgently needed by Italy, including 30 sets of ICU equipment like respirators, monitors and dual-channel infusion pumps, 2 sets of portable color doppler ultrasound instruments, 60,000 pieces of laboratory testing reagents, and 9 tons of anti-epidemic materials and commonly used drugs.

On March 20 local time, the Zhejiang medical expert team to Italy went to the local hospitals, communicated with the Italian medical staff on the treatment technique and the prevention and control measures against COVID-19 and went into the wards to get hold of the up-to-date information.

On March 11, the first batch of 26.4 tons of medical supplies from Zhejiang Province to aid overseas Chinese were delivered to Italy. The supplies include disposable masks, N95 respirators, isolation clothing, protective clothing, goggles, and latex gloves, packed in a total of 4,556 boxes. On March 18, Zhejiang delivered another batch of emergency supplies, and a total of 35.4 tons of medical protective materials have been sent to Italy so far.

Zhejiang, Japan, and South Korea are close neighbors separated by a strip of water. Over the years, Zhejiang has had close exchanges and good cooperation with the two countries, especially with international friendship cities. On March 12, anti-epidemic medical supplies such as masks, protective clothing, and goggles carrying the wishes of the people of Zhejiang were “assembled” at Yiwu Airport and sent to Japan and South Korea.

On March 11, Professor Jurgen Hass heard that the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University had summarized the effective experience in the practical treatment of COVID-19, so he made a call to the experts in the First Affiliated Hospital through one of his friends to request remote consultation and professional guidance.

On March 13, a transoceanic video discussion & exchange connected the four places, Hangzhou in Zhejiang, Wuhan in Hubei, Ireland, and England, together. More than 30 foreign experts and doctors listened closely to the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine’s report on Chinese approaches, Zhejiang’s innovative measures and the Hospital’s experience in relation to COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control.

As of 15:00, March 21, the Handbook of COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment- Clinical Experience of the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine released worldwide has been spread to 219 countries and regions and clicked by 1.478 million visitors.
