Beijing's fifth batch of medical workers that assist southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region left for the region on Thursday, in a bid to offer timely medical support in the fight against the novel coronavirus-related pneumonia.

Since Jan. 30, when the first case of novel coronavirus-related pneumonia was confirmed in Tibet, many medical workers have volunteered to be back in Tibet for the epidemic prevention and control work. Some of them are the veterans in the fight against SARS in 2003.

Li Yanmei, vice director of Beijing Municipal Health Commission, highly praised the medical worker’s courage and spirit. In the winter, thin air and low temperature on the Tibetan Plateau poses great challenges for medical workers. Still, members of the medical team expressed their confidence in winning the fight, saying it is their duty to support Tibet and people of all ethnic groups.

In order to better serve the epidemic prevention and control work, the team also took on special medical training and received key medical resources from the Beijing Municipal Health Commission.
