The team of Libyan doctors who have returned from Italy after completing their mission in assisting the Italian authorities to contain the Coronavirus pandemic has launched an awareness program starting from the city of Gharyan, to implement the Italian experience in Libya.

The National Center for Disease Control said on Saturday, this comes as part of the national community awareness campaign launched by the center in several cities.

The program includes a comprehensive training program for medical and auxiliary medical personnel, as well as health care providers working in isolation centers and intensive care units.

On Thursday, the National Center for Disease Control held a press conference to welcome and honor the doctors upon their return from Italy after three months of work in one of the most worst-hit countries worldwide, regarding the novel coronavirus.

Libya sent last April 30 doctors to Italy as part of an initiative by the Government of National Accord (GNA) to help Italian health authorities in their battle against Covid-19.

The Italian Foreign Minister Di Maio commended the support of the GNA and the Libyan people for their full solidarity with Rome.
