Covid-19: Word Bank’s IDA disburses $8.1 million to help boost Togo’s testing and treatment capacities

(Togo First) - The World Bank will provide Togo $8.1 million to help it fight the coronavirus. 

The funds will enhance the country's testing capacities and healthcare, by acquiring and setting up a mobile laboratory, treatment centres, and buying top-notch medical equipment. “They will surely improve Togo’s reaction against the pandemic,” said Hawa Wague, resident representative of the World Bank in Togo. This is in a context where the outbreak puts great pressure on the country’s hospitals and dispensaries which are at the front line of this war. 

On April 29, Togo reported 109 Covid-19 cases, including 38 active, 64 recovered, and 7 deaths. Overall, Lomé has tested so far 6,675 people across the territory.
