On Sunday, Belgium sent a new shipment of medical supplies to Guinea through its emergency aid mechanism B-FAST, according to international reports.
Like many countries around the world, Guinea’s healthcare system has been impacted by the COVID-19.
In response to this issue, the European advanced country sent 760,000 masks to the capital Conakry via the emergency aid mechanism B-FAST.
However, the health situation is also complicated by a measles epidemic, an epidemic of yellow fever and recently also some new Ebola infections which together put an enormous strain on the Guinean medical system.
On this basis, Belgium expressed its solidarity with the Guinean people, which is undergoing a great deal of suffering.
“Through the FPS Public Health, our country is donating 600,000 surgical masks and 160,000 KN95,” the statement added.
