At 3:37 am on May 4, the Chinese government's second batch of emergency humanitarian aid to Mexico departed from Beijing Capital International Airport. It is expected to arrive in Mexico at 5:54 pm Beijing time the same day.

According to an official at the Department of Aid to Foreign Countries, under the Ministry of Commerce, this batch includes face masks, eyeshades, gloves, sterilized appliances and body-temperature thermometers. The shipment is made up of about 6,300 cases with a 475 cubic meter volume and weighing 70 tons.
