Coronavirus: A second batch of the equipment Jack Ma promised Africa is on the way

(Togo First) - Chinese billionaire Jack Ma recently tweeted that the second batch of equipment to combat the coronavirus pandemic was on the way to 54 African nations. 

That includes 500 ventilators, 200,000 suits & face shields, 2,000 thermometers, 1M swabs & extraction kits and 500,000 gloves,” the tweet reads. 

For its part, Togo, which is part of the recipients received the first batch of equipment (masks, testing kits, hand sanitizers, etc) a few weeks ago. 

Airlines such as Ethiopian Airlines and Asky are ensuring the transportation of the goods in a context where the aviation sector is hardly hit by the virus. 

So far, 52 people have tested positive for the Covid-19. Twenty-two (22) of them have recovered, 3 have died, and the remaining 27 are being treated. Over the continent, 9,793 Covid-19 cases and 443 deaths from the infection are reported as of today.
