China has agreed to provide medical equipment, including oxygen generators and fingertip oximeters, valued at 10 million yuan (about 50 million baht), to Thailand to help in the fight to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Chinese Embassy in Bangkok said, in a brief statement today, that the donation is a demonstration of the good wishes and friendship of the Chinese government and people towards the Thai people.

“The pandemic may have no mercy, but we humans have to love each other. The Chinese and Thais will share hardship and happiness and will get through the crisis together,” said the statement.
