A Kuwait Army transport plane returned home from China Wednesday, carrying tons of medical equipment and supplies to help the government curb spread of coronavirus, the Ministry of Defense said.

This is the seventh army plane as part of repatriation and delivery operations, aimed at providing logistical support for government bodies, the ministry said in a statement.

This journey, it added, was in cooperation and coordination with the Ministry of Health to provide medical equipment and supplies.

Earlier today, Kuwait Ambassador in Beijing Sameeh Hayat said the transport aircraft, which took off from the Chinese city of Guangzhou, was loaded with 55 tons of medical supplies.

Hayat, in a statement to KUNA, said he was supervising an air corridor between China and Kuwait to support the "strategic storage" in the Arab Gulf country to help it curb the spread of coronavirus.
