Grenada: The Ministry of Health of Grenada has accepted the donation of more than 600,000 EC dollars worth of equipment and supplies by the people’s republic of China on Friday, March 11, 2022. The ministry of health’s talk of medical supplies was increased on Friday. 

The presentation was made at the General hospital to Health and Social Security Minister Nicholas Steele by Chinese Ambassador Wei Hongtian. Ambassador Hongtian explained that the equipment is essential and gives reassurance of solidarity. 

He noted that it was faced with the devastating pandemic; only by joining hands together can it retire over hard times. 

Outlining the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines, Hongtian stated, “The inequality in medical supplies and vaccines distribution among countries is drastic, and heart-wrenching and this problem should be addressed by unity, corporation, materialism and sense of responsibilities, but nor unilateral that there’s some and finger-pointing”.   

Health Minister Nicholas Steele and Foreign Affairs Minister Oliver Joseph both shared the sentiments that the people’s republic of China continues to be a good friend to Grenada. 

Health Minister Steele also emphasized,” We get here again today to recognize as you have said Ambassador China makes no empty promises. China promised to be our friend, helping us as best as possible in this pandemic, even during the dark moments for china herself, and you have lived up to and stood up to that promise today is another example of that we continue to receive assistance and also in a not too distant future a couple of weeks from now. I’m hoping that we will be at another venue here in Grenada to receive further”. 

He further remarked that I think what we can determine as a piece the resistance the ultimate which is the vaccines you have to come to our assistance throughout the COVID-19 period, in providing us with PPE Kitts and other assistants that will help the people of Grenada to overcome this pandemic and because of your health, help, we were able to manage to reach the situation that we are in today where we can see the lifting of a lot of the restrictions that we put in place previously.
