More donations from China on the way to Cuba to fight Covid-19

Beijing, Aug 28 (Prensa Latina) An airplane laden with medical supplies donated by the Chinese Government departed for Cuba on Saturday in the context of a global wave of solidarity to support the Caribbean island's fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Cuban Embassy here explained that the cargo consists of thousands of facemasks, suits, gloves and protective glasses, antigen tests and other items that are very necessary for the daily work of the medical personnel involved in caring for those suffering from the disease, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

It is the third batch of aid from China that Cuba will receive in less than a month, after 30 lung ventilators sent in late July and 150 oxygen concentrators donated last week.

Cuban officials noted that all these actions are evidence of the will of China’s authorities and people to express their solidarity with Cuba as it is going through a special situation.
