China stands in solidarity with Costa Rica against the new coronavirus, covid-19. The nation donates tests to detect covid-19. Additionally, China donates to Costa Rica medical supplies like masks and airway machines.
The amount of test kits donated was not made public but we heard that it was a significant amount. 5 specialty machines called continuous positive airway pressure machines are on the way. These are used to force air through the airways to prevent them from being blocked by breathing problems.
On March 19, a video meeting was held with Chinese experts on infectious disease. The executive director of the CCSS and the director of the National Children’s Hospital attended and heard recommendations for the prevention and treatment of covid-19.
The terms between Costa Rica and China have been excellent since June 1, 2007. The bilateral relations show mutual trust, benefits, and cooperation. The President personally thanked the People’s Republic of China.
