DFA chief : China to donate 100K Covid-19 test kits to PH




The origin of the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19 is now slowly standing up from their own battle against the disease and is now in a position to help other countries.
China will be donating 100,000 coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) test kits and other essential medical supplies to the country, this is according to Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. 

"China (is) getting a chartered flight by the weekend; mysteriously there are no Philippine flights. I am asked to please alert Customs to let donation through pronto," he said in a tweet.

The Foreign Secretary said the donation would also include 10,000 N95 masks, 10,000 sets of personal protective equipment, and 100,000 surgical masks.
The Chinese embassy in Manila is now coordinating with the Department of Health as to the turnover of the said essential medical supplies once they arrive in the country.
"Ambassador Huang reaffirms that the Philippines continues to stand close in China's heart as our centuries-long relationship has shown. The Chinese people stand ready to help their Philippine brothers and sisters to go through this difficult time," the embassy wrote on its official social media page.

This is an additional donation after it was announce a days ago, when China donated a total of 2,000 high-tech test kits, also known as BGI RT-CPR test kits, to Manila.
