COVID-19 Treatment Gets Small Boost

April 3 , 2021

No less than 35 COVID-19 treatment centres across the country are due to receive much-needed medical equipment financed by the Export-Import Bank of Korea (Korea Eximbank). Officials at the Ministry of Health received ventilators, detection machines, kits, ICU beds, masks and gloves last week from the Korean Economic Development Cooperation Fund. The handover comes as part of a 30-million-dollar loan agreement for a medical equipment provision the Ethiopian government signed with the EDCF in June last year. COVID-19 cases have been rapidly climbing over the last two months, with the infection rate jumping by up to 150pc.
