Society A- A A+
As part of Morocco’s efforts to help fellow African nations fight the COVID19 pandemic, His Majesty King Mohammed VI gave His instructions to ship medical equipment to some 15 countries around the African continent.
The shipment consists of 8 million face masks, 900,000 face visors, 600,000 hygiene caps, 60,000 medical protection coats, 30,000 liters of hydroalcoholic gel, as well as 75,000 packs of chloroquine and 15,000 packs of Azithromycin.
This aid will benefit 15 Sub-Saharan African countries, namely: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Comoros, Congo, Eswatini, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Malawi, Mauritania, Niger, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal, Tanzania, Chad and Zambia, added the same source.
This solidarity action is part of the Initiative launched by HM the King on April 13, 2020, as a pragmatic and action-oriented approach, intended to the brotherly African countries, enabling the sharing of experiences and good practices and aiming to establish an operational framework in order to support their efforts in the various phases of the pandemic management, noted the ministry.
All the protective products and equipment making up the medical aids sent to brotherly African countries are produced in Morocco by Moroccan companies and comply with the World Health Organization's standards.
Morocco has become a leading producer and exporter of facial masks with a daily output of over 10 million masks.
