'Chinese embassy donates 2K 'fast test kits' for Covid-19'

In this time of crises, we should set aside politics because we all need the help we can have, most especially when the lives of our “kababayans” are at stake.

The Chinese Embassy together with the China Mammoth Foundation, in Manila, has just donated some 2,000 novel coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) test kits to the Philippines.

In the report published by the Philippine News Agency(PNA), the Chinese Ambassador Huang Xilian said the 2,000 "fast test kits" comprise the first batch of test kits that China donated to the Philippines.

BGI RT-qPCR Test Kits or "fast test kits" from China can issue reliable results within three hours. Developed by the China BGI Group, these test kits are used in more than 50 countries including Japan, Thailand, Brunei, Egypt, Peru and the United Arab Emirates in detecting positive cases for Covid-19.

"We will be donating personal protective equipment like protective clothing, facial masks as well, and it will be announced," Xilian said.
 Ambassador Xilian said, the high high-tech test kits, also known as BGI RT-qCPR test kits, was developed by China BGI Group, and are capable of providing "reliable results" in three hours.
The China BGI Group test kits have also been exported to more than 50 countries like Japan, Thailand, Brunei, Egypt, Peru and the United Arab Emirates.
"We have taken note of all the measures implemented by your government and your inter-agency task force, and we believe that only under the leadership of Duterte administration we'll be able to overcome this and we fully support the efforts of the government and your people fighting the epidemic," Xilian said.
He also thanked the national government "for the help it has extended to China during its difficult times", urging the Filipinos to stand in solidarity with everyone fighting Covid-19.
"The Chinese government and people sympathize greatly with (the) Philippines (and) are willing to lend a helping hand. China has been sharing to the Philippines our anti-epidemic experiences, carrying out close medical experts-level cooperation with your country," he added.
