Ten container trucks, loaded with the first batch of sheep donated from Mongolia, departed from the border city of Erenhot in north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on Thursday.
The batch of 12,000 sheep, which were slaughtered, are expected to arrive in Wuhan, capital of central China’s Hubei Province, in two or three days.
The processed mutton has been put into package boxes labelled “Mongolia-donated sheep.’’
Mongolian President Khaltmaa Battulga in February visited China at the critical stage of China’s COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control and promised to offer 30,000 sheep as a token of support.
From Oct. 22, batches of donated sheep began to arrive in Erenhot, where they undergo quarantine and inspection and are slaughtered.
By Wednesday, 27,100 sheep donated from Mongolia had arrived in Erenhot. (Xinhua/NAN)
