The People’s Republic of China has taken another step to assist Cambodia in combating the COVID—19 pandemic with the donation of 10,000 coronavirus detection kits to the Institut Pasteur du Cambodge, which is responsible for conducting COVID-19 testing in Cambodia.
The contribution was delivered today by the PRC’s Embassy in Cambodia.
“The Institut Pasteur du Cambodge (IPC) would like to express our appreciation to The Embassy of the People’s Republic of China for having supported us with 10,000pcs of the ANDiS SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza A/B RT-qPCR Detection kits,” IPC said on its official Facebook page.
“We deeply thank you for your contribution and support to the IPC in our response to the COVID-19 pandemic under the coordination of the Cambodian Ministry of Health.”
The latest donation is in addition to countless contributions of medical supplies by China to Cambodia, as well as the 600,000 doses of Sinopharm’s COVID-19 vaccine, the first batch of the one million doses promised by China to Cambodia, which is due to arrive at Phnom Penh International Airport this Sunday.
