Slowly but surely the government lack of everything needed to fight the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19 is being addressed by the government.
The second batch of donations from the Chinese government has reached the country consisting of 100,000 test kits for the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Huang Xilian turned over the test kits, along with at least 10,000 pieces of n95 masks, 100,000 surgical masks, and 10,000 personal protective equipment, to Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. and representatives of the Department of Health (DOH).

The test kits, called the Novel Coronavirus Nucleic Acid Diagnostic Kit (PCR-Fluorescence Probing), will be distributed from the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) to sub-national laboratories, this according to Dr. Joel Buenaventura, chief health program officer of the DOH's Migrant Health Unit.
Locsin in accepting Beijing’s donation said it is "a tremendous help" as the Philippines addresses the Covid-19 situation.
"It is a model for what the rest of the world should be doing. Instead of blaming each other from what's happening, we should all start working together to help each other," he said.

DFA Secretary Locsin also lauded the measures implemented by Beijing in containing the disease, particularly its initial move to lock down Wuhan City.
"The measures China took at the start of the Covid-19 epidemic were the right ones and in fact, we have adopted it – the complete isolation of communities because it's the only way. Or as our president says, 'We need to starve the virus of victims. The one who showed the way is China,’" he said.
