Mongolian sheep sent to Wuhan as gifts

By ZHANG YANGFEI in Beijing and LIU KUN in Wuhan | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-11-21 00:00

The first batch of 11,267 sheep from Mongolia arrived recently in Wuhan, Hubei province, which was hit hard by COVID-19 earlier this year, and will be given to medical workers who fought the virus, the Hubei provincial department of commerce announced on Friday.

The department on Friday afternoon held a handover ceremony for the sheep, which were slaughtered, processed, packaged and labeled "Mongolia-donated sheep". Qin Jun, the department director, said Hubei people have happily received the warm gifts and expressed appreciation for the Mongolian government and people.

The donation came after Mongolian President Khaltmaa Battulga visited China in February, a critical stage of China's COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control, and promised to offer 30,000 sheep as a token of support.
