Taiwan donates face masks to Ministry of Health

Posted: Thursday, April 16, 2020. 7:12 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Today, the Minister of Health, Pablo Marin received, on behalf of the Government of Belize, 60,000 face masks from the Government of Taiwan through its Ambassador to Belize H.E. Remus Li-Kou Chen.

In addition to today’s donation, the Government of Taiwan will also donate six infrared thermal imaging cameras, to be shipped to Belize next week.

The equipment can be used to track the temperature of more than 10 persons at a time on the monitor. They will be installed in hospitals where there is a large inflow of persons in order to detect anyone who might have a fever.

The Government of Taiwan has also pledged financial support to the Ministry of Health to purchase 200,000 additional face masks, 40 portable pulse oximeters, 400,000 disposal gloves and other laboratory supplies to combat this pandemic in Belize.

Also, as a part of their support the Ministry, the Chi-Mei Hospital of Taiwan recently hosted a virtual meeting with Belizean doctors to share best practices in coping with the challenges of COVID-19.

The Governments of Taiwan and Belize continue to foster their strong diplomatic relations through these donations to fight against COVID-19.
