HCMC – A batch of 180,000 Covid-19 test kits worth some 615,000 euros donated by Germany will arrive at the Cam Ranh International Airport in Khanh Hoa Province on September 4.
Today, September 3, a Vietnam Airlines plane that transported the test kits free of charge took off from the Frankfurt International Airport in Germany to Vietnam.
Among the test kits, 150,000 donated by the World University Service (WUS) and 30,000 donated by the people of Berlin will be sent to the Pasteur Institute in Nha Trang.
This is the third shipment of quick test kits that Germany has presented to Vietnam to help the country cope with the spread of Covid-19, said Dr. Kambiz Ghawami, WUS President.
The WUS president also expressed his gratitude to the Vietnamese Government and the Vietnamese people for the donation of medical supplies to Germany last year, VietnamPlus reported.
In May, 2020, WUS took delivery of over 200,000 face masks from Vietnam, which reflected the close friendship between the two countries during the hardship, he added.
