Kuala Lumpur, April 6 (AFP) – as of 12 PM today, novel coronavirus in Malaysia had confirmed 131 cases and 62 deaths, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 3,793. Today, 236 people were discharged from hospital, bringing the total number of recovered cases to 1,241.
In addition, according to Malaysian transport minister wei jiaxiang’s letter, Malaysia imported from China 100 beds suitable for intensive care units have been delivered in batches.The first batch of 28 beds arrived in Malaysia the day before yesterday and were sent to several government hospitals yesterday.
He thanked the national oil foundation for its generous donation of 100 beds in the intensive care unit to the ministry of health for the treatment of coronavirus patients.
The beds were specially ordered from hebei pukang medical equipment co., the largest medical equipment manufacturer in hebei, China.Currently, many countries around the world, including Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States, are ordering beds from China for use in intensive care units.
According to Malaysian transport minister wei jiaxiang, “it is not easy to introduce these beds, each weighing up to 250kg, into our country.The ministry of transport must arrange three planes to bring the beds to our country.
Since the civil aviation administration of China (CAAC) has banned foreigners from entering China since March 28, the ministry of transport has to specifically apply to the CAAC to allow airasia cargo flights to tianjin and Beijing, carrying all 100 hospital beds home in batches.
Because of the huge size of the beds, just 28 beds fill the entire plane’s capacity.
The ministry is also in active consultation with the civil aviation administration of China to bring the remaining 72 beds home as soon as possible.
These beds will help save many patients’ lives.Thank you to the national oil foundation, airasia cargo, the Chinese ambassador to Malaysia and our ministry of foreign affairs for their assistance in ensuring the smooth transfer of these beds from China to China.”
In addition, the Malaysian health ministry imported from China’s 94 intensive care unit respirators by Malaysia airlines cargo from Shanghai to Kuala Lumpur international airport last night.These medical devices will be of great help to the medical team in Malaysia to save more precious lives.
