Chinese Doctors are in Abuyog, Leyte


The Super Typhoon Yolanda left hospital non-operational because of the damages made by it. And, a large number of residents failed to receive immediate health care. Good thing that the Chinese emergency medical team is now providing consultations and other health assistance.

The medical team brought with them tents that serves as consultation rooms.

One member of the team, Yan Jianping, said that the common illness of the residents in the area is respiratory disease. This is usually caused by a day-night temperature and because of continuous rain in the area.

Furthermore, the team has already started to communicate with the local hospitals to accommodate any surgical operations.
