Italy’s fight against coronavirus has received desperately needed doctors, supplies and equipment from China.

Soaring numbers of new coronavirus patients are putting the country’s health services under strain.

Health officials have described the outbreak as a “race against time”.
With Italy’s health system under severe pressure from the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, help is being flown in from China.

Specialist doctors and medical equipment have landed in Italy ready to help tackle the sharp spike in people with the disease, which has overwhelmed medical facilities.

The doctors bring with them first-hand experience of dealing with the coronavirus, having previously helped to tackle the original outbreak in China’s Hubei province that killed more than 3,000 people. Tough quarantine measures have seen the rate of new cases in China dwindle, while in Europe the outbreak continues to spread.

“Our doctors don’t need anyone to teach them their job, but the Chinese doctors were the first [to treat the virus]and they can bring their experience,” Italian Minister Luigi DI Maio told RAI television.

More than 12,000 people have tested positive for the virus in Italy, and the number of new cases is increasing daily.
