The Chinese medical team arrived in Beijing Wednesday morning from Haiti after winding up a two-week mission in the quake-hit Caribbean country.

The medical team, consisting of 40 military medical professionals, had treated more than 4,000 injured or sick locals, and distributed more than 20,000 copies of brochures on sanitation and disease control by February 6, China's Ministry of Commerce said Wednesday in a statement on its website.

The team set foot in Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital, on January 25 and immediately got to work.

The Chinese medical team and Chinese journalists arrived at the Beijing Capital International Airport in a Air China chartered plane Wednesday morning.

The medical team helped to distribute more than 150 types of medicine and drinking water to locals and disinfected a total area of 51,000 square meters, according to the statement.
