Chinese companies and the Dongguan Municipal Government donated over half a million face masks to the Addis Abeba City Administration last week. The Dongguan Municipal government, CCCC Ethiopia Construction Company, Huajian International Light Industry, Transsion Manufacturing, TECNO, Tencent Foundation and Huawei Technologies Ethiopia provided the support. Takele Uma, deputy mayor of Addis Abeba, has received the 520,000 face masks. It is high time for China to support Ethiopia to curb the transmission of COVID-19 as Ethiopia assisted China while it was struggling with the virus, according to Tan Jian, Chinese Ambassador to Ethiopia. "Ethiopia should take a lesson from China to combat the spread of COVID-19, which is enhancing public health cooperation," he said.
