The 2nd batch of Chinese medical supplies for Bangladesh to battle the coronavirus pandemic will reach Dhaka on Thursday afternoon.

The supply would arrive in Dhaka from Kunming, China, through a special aircraft of the Chinese government at around 4:00pm, Chinese deputy ambassador in Dhaka said.

The Chinese government is sending the medical supplies, including test kits, personal protection equipment (PPE), and other materials, as a token of friendly gesture.
