Foreign help is coming in the country as we are bracing for an uphill battle against the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19.
China, particularly the municipal government of Guangzhou in China is donating thousands of essential medical supplies to Manila, its sister city and where the country’s referral center for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is located.


Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. said a total of  200,000 N95 masks, 100,000 surgical masks, and 2,000 thermal scanners/infrared thermometers will be included in the donation.

Locsin in his Twitter account, has asked Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko” Domagoso to distribute the supplies "fast before it ends up in government warehouse".
Concerns regarding the delay of release in the Bureau of Customs (BOC)
In a press conference, Foreign Affairs Undersecretary Brigido Dulay said the BOC and the Department of Finance (DOF) had already agreed to expedite the release of donations containing personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies.


"Base po sa usapan natin sa BOC at DOF, kapag ang dumating ay PPE, masks, goggles, hazmat suits, lahat po ito papasaukin ng mabilis (Based on our talks with the BOC and DOF, the donated PPE including masks, goggles, hazmat suits will be released immediately)," he said.
