Singapore Ambassador Gerard Ho and Chief of Presidential Protocol and Presidential Assistant for Foreign Affairs Robert Borje were at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport to turnover a donation of 40,000 COVID-19 diagnostic tests and two ventilators, from the Temasek Foundation to the Philippines. These additional test kits will supplement Singapore’s earlier donation to allow more people to have an early diagnosis, while the ventilators will be crucial for the survival of severe COVID-19 cases.
Singapore will continue to work on ways in which we can contribute to the Philippines’ effort to contain and defeat COVID-19. In the meantime, practise social distancing, good hygiene habits, and stay safe!
