Chinese Ambassador to Dominica, His Excellency Lu Kun has stated that the medical equipment donated by the Chinese Government to the China- Dominica Friendship Hospital is superior through out the region.

At a press conference following the tour of the first phase of the $40 million facility,  Kun confirmed that Dominica is the second country within the Caribbean with such equipment in its possession.

Post Hurricane Maria, the Chinese Government donated equipment to the Princess Margaret Hospital and in March additional equipment was also donated.

“Some of these equipment is more higher than Chinese ordinary hospital. Not all Chinese hospital has this kind of equipment and this is the second country in the region to have such equipment,” he explained.

Kun went on to elaborate that training of persons who will use the equipment is the next step forward.

“This machine is very professional and they are advanced machines so I think the Ministry of health should organize some doctors from China to train for better use of the equipment.”
