The People’s Republic of China donated a significant amount of test kits to detect covid-19 in Costa Rica, which will arrive in the coming days, the Costa Rican Foreign Ministry reported Monday.

On March 19, Costa Rican health authorities held a video conference with Chinese experts to share measures on the prevention and control of the spread of the epidemic of the new coronavirus, as well as the treatment of those infected with covid-19. Photo: Chinese Embassy in CR

In addition, Costa Rica will receive medical supplies such as surgical masks, additional test kits and five ventilator machines, thanks to the contribution of Jack Ma and Alibaba Foundation.

“These donations are a gesture of solidarity that reflects the strength of the ties that have united Costa Rica and the People’s Republic of China since June 1, 2007,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
