OUAGADOUGOU — China on Oct 2 donated medical devices to the Burkina Faso government to reinforce its fight against COVID-19.

Valued at about 600 million CFA francs ($1 million), the donation was handed over by the Chinese Ambassador Li Jian to Burkina Faso's Health Minister Claudine Lougue-Sorgho on Oct 2 in the capital Ouagadougou.

"We believe these devices will play an important role to better equip health facilities in Burkina Faso for the fight against COVID-19 and will help reverse the trend of a potential epidemic rebound", Li said.

"Burkina Faso can lean on the unwavering support of China in its ongoing fight against COVID-19 since March this year,", said Burkina Faso's Prime Minister Christophe Marie Joseph Dabire.

As of September 30, Burkina Faso registered 2,032 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 58 deaths.
