China has sent a 60-member team to Hong Kong to conduct mass testing of coronavirus to curb the rising numbers.
The team is composed of public health workers from the city of Guandong and Wuhan who will also transform important centres into hospital to fight the pandemic.
Speaking and confirming the news was Carrie Lam who said they were responding to a request from Hong Kong to curb the first rising cases of the virus.

The news come at a time when China themselves are reporting new cases of the virus from some of the previously worst hit areas.
