The information was released Saturday in Luanda by the Chinese ambassador to Angola, Gong Tao.

The diplomat who was speaking to journalist after delivering 1000 mattresses and 20 sofas to a sheltering centre for street kids and needy families, said Wuhan is currently regaining its vitality.

“The students are all healthy and resuming normal life, despite having passed two hard months of quarantine. But the sacrifice of them all was worthy to avoid getting infected (with the Covid-19),” said the ambassador. There are two Angolans interned in China due to the disease.

The ambassador said that China is now focused on recovering its economy and producing goods to serve the world market.
