President Weah appreciated the bond of friendship between Liberia and China, on behalf of the Government and people of Liberia.
The Liberian Leader particularly paid special tribute to Chinese President, Xi Jinping, for his unwavering support to Liberia and its people.
Items donated include one-hundred-eighty ventilators, fifty oxygen concentrators, over one-thousand full face masks and one-hundred thermometers, among others.
At the same time, Health Minister Dr. Wilhelmina Jallah has praised the coordination between Liberia and Chinese Health Authorities.
Dr. Jallah said:” Liberia’s successful fight against COVID-19 can also be accredited to the Chinese Government for its constant engagement.”
