The People’s Republic of China confirmed that, in view of the situation generated by COVID-19, it will make two important donations to Costa Rica that will materialize in the coming days.
The first donation will consist of a significant amount of test kits to detect COVID-19 and, in addition, thanks to the contribution of the Jack Ma Foundation and the Alibaba Foundation, medical supplies, such as surgical masks, additional test kits, will be donated and five continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines.
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.
Upon learning of the scope of this donation, the President of the Republic, Carlos Alvarado Quesada, stated: “The Strategic Alliance that Costa Rica and China promote has borne multiple fruits, and this cooperation represents a manifestation of the closeness that both peoples maintain. The excellent state of bilateral relations is manifested in the permanent exercise of the principles of equality, mutual trust, cooperation and mutual benefits. ”
