Zimbabwe received a consignment from the Jack Ma & Alibaba Foundation to help strengthen & intensify surveillance, lab testing & case management of COVID-19 in Zimbabwe. The consignment included :-
- 20,000 lab diagnostic test kids
- 100,000 face masks
- 1,000 protective suits
This comes after Chinese Billionaire Jack Ma and Alibaba Group Founder and his charity foundation Jack Ma Foundation is distributing equipment across 54 African countries to combat the pandemic Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Despite generally donation by the Jack Ma & his foundation there is need by African nations to contribute in equipping hospitals in particularly Zimbabwe where the only hospital has no ventilators or protective clothing for health practitioners.
