Singapore handed over 40,000 COVID-19 test kits to Philippines

Singapore on Saturday (March 28), donates additional 40,000 COVID-19 test kits to the Philippines as Manila embrace with the rising number of infections.

Singapore Ambassador Gerard Ho and Chief of Protocol and Presidential Assistant for Foreign Affairs Robert Borje were at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport for the turnover.

“These additional test kits will supplement Singapore’s earlier donation to allow more people to have an early diagnosis, while the ventilators will be crucial for the survival of severe COVID-19 cases,” the Embassy of Singapore said in a statement.

Apart from Singapore, the United States and China have also provided assistance to the Philippine government’s fight against the global pandemic, which has killed more than 25,000.
