新华社哈拉雷7月23日电由中国企业出资新建的新型冠状病毒肺炎治疗中心23日正式开业。


三家中国公司与当地一家私营医疗机构合作,在首都哈拉雷建立了该设施。


当地合作伙伴Health Point提供医疗专业知识,而中国公司提供医疗设备和资金。


该医疗设施名为健康点上东区医疗中心(HPUEMC),可同时容纳50名COVID-19患者。


周三,中国驻津巴布韦大使郭绍春参观该医疗中心时表示,只有通过团结合作,国际社会才能战胜疫情。


在访问期间,郭在接受新华社采访时表示,他希望医疗中心能够帮助津巴布韦减轻COVID-19的压力。


“这种病毒是人类面临的共同挑战,”他说。中国是最早感染新冠病毒的国家之一,我们有经验和教训可以与包括非洲国家在内的其他国家分享。”


该设施是津巴布韦和中国合作运营的首家医院。


他说:“虽然这家医院不是公立医院,但它对津巴布韦的医疗系统是一个很好的补充。我们希望未来能有更多的合作。”


他强调,中国将继续加大对津巴布韦等非洲国家抗击新冠肺炎疫情的援助。


他还表示,津巴布韦和中国的合作是务实和可见的,必须为普通民众的福祉作出贡献。


安尼斯利表示,相信津中合作将在抗击疫情中发挥重要作用。


他说,除了为新冠肺炎患者提供优质医疗服务外,新医院还将为该国其他医疗机构提供培训。


他说:“我们认为,津巴布韦的优质COVID-19治疗中心将帮助其他医疗机构了解如何管理和护理COVID-19阳性患者的最佳做法。


安内斯利说:“它将不仅仅是一个治疗中心,面向普通公众、华人社区和商界,它还将成为一个非常强大的培训机构,帮助人们学习如何处理COVID病例。”


HPUEMC的执行董事Michael Li说,这个设施的目的不是为了暴利,而是为了服务社会。


他说:“我们相信,我们有道德和社会责任帮助中国抗击疫情。”


自今年3月津巴布韦发现首例新冠肺炎病例以来,中国政府和在津中资企业通过向津一线人员捐赠医疗物资、提供技术支持等方式,为津抗击疫情作出了重要贡献。

HARARE, July 23 (Xinhua) -- A newly established state-of-the-art COVID-19 treatment center that was funded by Chinese firms operating in the country officially opened on Thursday.

Three Chinese firms teamed up with a local private medical institution to establish the facility in the capital Harare.

The local partner, Health Point, is providing medical expertise while the Chinese firms are providing medical equipment and funding.

The medical facility, named Health Point Upper East Medical Center (HPUEMC), has a capacity to accommodate 50 COVID-19 patients at a time.

When touring the medical center on Wednesday, Chinese ambassador to Zimbabwe Guo Shaochun said only through solidarity and cooperation can the international community overcome the pandemic.

In an interview with Xinhua during the tour, Guo said he hoped the medical center can help Zimbabwe reduce pressure on COVID-19.

"The virus is a common challenge to humanity," he said. "And China is one of the first countries to be hit by the coronavirus, so we have lessons and experiences to share with other countries including with African countries."

The facility is the first hospital in the country to be run through a partnership between Zimbabwe and China.

"Although the hospital is not a public one, it is a very good supplement to the medical system of Zimbabwe. We hope to see more cooperation in the future," Guo said.

He stressed that China will continue to step up assistance to Zimbabwe and other African countries in combating the COVID-19 pandemic.

He also said cooperation between Zimbabwe and China is practical and visible, and must contribute to the wellbeing of ordinary people.

Peter Annesley, Health Point Hospitals Chief Executive Officer, expressed confidence that the cooperation between Zimbabwe and the Chinese side will go a long way in fighting the pandemic.

He said besides providing quality health care to COVID-19 patients, the new facility will also provide training to other medical institutions in the country.

"We think it's going to be the premium COVID-19 treatment center in Zimbabwe that will help other healthcare facilities come and understand the best practices on how to manage and care for COVID-19 positive patients.

"It will not be just a treatment center for the general public, the Chinese community and the business community, it will also become a very powerful training facility to help people learn how to deal with COVID cases," Annesley said.

Michael Li, Executive Director of HPUEMC, said the goal of the facility is not to rake in profits, but to serve the community.

"We believe that we have the moral and social responsibility to help the country fight the pandemic," he said.

Since the first case of COVID-19 was recorded in Zimbabwe in March, the Chinese government and Chinese companies operating in the country have made notable contributions to the country's fight against the pandemic through donations of medical supplies and providing technical support to Zimbabwe's frontline personnel.
