China on Saturday announced to donate $100,000 to the World Health Organization (WHO) for the purchase of protective kits and medical equipment as part of COVID-19 response in South Sudan.

Hua Ning, Chinese ambassador to South Sudan, said in a statement issued in Juba that the prevention and control of imported infections have become a prominent challenge for South Sudan.

“We are hereby pleased to announce that the Chinese Embassy in South Sudan will donate 100,000 dollars to the WHO Country Office in Juba.

The donation would be used to procure protective kits including medical equipment which are urgently needed for the country,” Hua said.

Hua said COVID-19 is a global pandemic and currently confirmed cases have been reported in more than 40 African countries.

The envoy said the embassy will work closely with South Sudan, WHO and international partners to contain the virus in a spirit of solidarity.

To support South Sudan’s preparedness on COVID-19 at this critical moment, some other medical supplies donated by the Chinese government and Chinese companies will be delivered to South Sudan soon, Hua said.

There is no confirmed case in South Sudan so far.
