NANNING, April 7 (Xinhua) -- A team of Chinese medical experts aiding Cambodia in the fight against COVID-19 has returned home Tuesday after finishing their mission.

The team consisting of seven medical experts arrived in the airport of Nanning, capital of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, on Tuesday afternoon.

In Cambodia, they inspected the designated hospitals and virus testing labs and exchanged views with their Cambodian counterparts on the diagnosis and treatment procedures, selection of antiviral drugs and disinfection of hotels used for concentrated quarantine.

In addition, the experts offered training for Cambodian medics on personal protection, installation and use of lab equipment, as well as treatment of COVID-19 patients in severe and critical conditions.

A remote consultation system was also established, according to Ai Xiang, head of the medical team.

The experts specialize in various areas, including respiratory, public health, infection control and traditional Chinese medicine. The team arrived in Cambodia on March 23. It was the first Chinese medical team sent out to ASEAN countries for COVID-19 prevention and control.
