Covid-19: Morocco distributes 8mln masks and medical equipment to 15 countries on the continent

(Ecofin Agency) - Strongly invested in a continental policy of solidarity, Mohammed VI once again concretized his commitment to African countries and ordered the distribution of medical aid to 15 countries on the continent, where more than 226,483 cases of coronavirus have been recorded. The donation goes to Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Comoros, Congo, Eswatini, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Malawi, Mauritania, Niger, Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal, Tanzania, Chad, and Zambia.

Beneficiaries will receive 8 million masks, 900,000 visors, 600,000 hygiene caps, 60,000 medical coats, 30,000 liters of hydroalcoholic gel, as well as 75,000 boxes of chloroquine and 15,000 boxes of Azithromycin.

This initiative “aims to provide preventive medical equipment to support sister African countries in their efforts to fight the covid-19 pandemic,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement issued on Sunday, June 14. It falls in line with the appeal launched by the Alawite sovereign on April 13, inviting African heads of state to establish an operational framework to support the most vulnerable countries in managing the health, economic and social impact of the pandemic.

In this context, King Mohammed VI held a phone conversation with the Ivorian President, Alassane Ouattara, and Senegalese President Macky Sall, to initiate the creation of an African alliance to combat the coronavirus, based on the sharing of experiences and best practices.

Let’s recall that last April, Morocco had made the Mohammed VI Military Polyclinic of Sébéninkoro, in the suburbs of Bamako, available to the Malian authorities to receive patients infected by covid-19.
