Namibia Gets Additional COVID-19 Donation from China

The Namibia government has received a large consignment of medical equipments from China, bringing to over N$52 million the value of all medical goods the southern African country has received from the Asian nation.

The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Hon Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, received the equipment from the Chinese Ambassador, HE Zang Yiming, this week.

This is the fourth official donation from China to Namibia. The consignment comprises 30,000 face masks, 10 oxygenators, 20 ventilators and 100 thermometers.

It follows the 29 batches of equipment donated previously.

At the donation ceremony, the Deputy Prime Minister made it clear that “this donation will go a long way to help strengthen the country’s health system by providing the highest quality care, and empowering communities during these difficult times. The support by the Government of China in fighting Covid-19 will assist Namibia to be successful in responding to this unprecedented global health crisis.”

The Ambassador said “In the face of non-traditional security threats such as public health, all countries, big or small, rich or poor, should strengthen their solidarity and cooperation to cope better with risks and challenges and protect the global village in which we live together.”

“May I also take this opportunity to thank the Honourable Minister of Health and Social Services and all frontline workers that include doctor, nurses, social workers, pharmacist, drivers, and essential workers for their enormous efforts in fighting Covid-19,” said the Deputy Prime Minister.

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, health experts in Namibia have held five teleconferences with their Chinese counterparts to learn from their experience to contain the virus.
