Singapore Government and its people contributed COVID-19 test kits and medical equipment to Myanmar for the fight against COVID-19 at the Yangon International Airport yesterday.
Officials from the Ministry of Health and Sports and Singapore Embassy in Myanmar welcomed the flight that carried the medical supplies from Singapore at the Yangon airport.
Ambassador of Singapore Ms Chan Yuen Ying Vanessa Elisabeth handed over 25,000 sets of COVID-19 RT-PCR Tests, 1 million masks, and 200,000 hand sanitizers to Director-General of Medical Research Department Prof. Dr Zaw Than Tun at the airport.
Regarding to the donation, the Singapore’s Ambassador said, “Singapore notices the second wave of COVID-19 in Myanmar. The donation was made after the telephone conversation between State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Minister for Foreign Affairs Dr Vivian Balakrishnan a few weeks ago”.
“Facemasks were also donated earlier. This will reflect the friendships between Singapore and Myanmar,” she added.—Zaw Gyi/Phto: Pe Zaw
