YANGON, May 3 (Xinhua) -- A batch of COVID-19 vaccines donated by the Chinese government arrived at the Yangon International Airport on Sunday, according to a release from the Chinese embassy on Sunday.

The donated vaccines, promised by China earlier this year, was handed over at a critical stage of prevention and control against the pandemic, demonstrating the "Paukphaw" (fraternal) friendship and spirit of a community with a shared future, said the embassy, hoping that the vaccines can help protect life and health of Myanmar people and combat the pandemic.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, China and Myanmar have carried out effective cooperation, with China not only donating medicines and equipment, but also sending medical experts to assist Myanmar in combating the pandemic.
