The World Health Organisation (WHO) has delivered five new coronavirus testing kits to the Health Ministry in the besieged Gaza Strip.
This was disclosed by the UN Middle East special envoy, Nickolay Mladenov, on Wednesday October 14, 2020.
Mladenov on his Twitter handle stated that, “WHO delivered 5 extraction kits to the local health authorities in the Gaza Strip that are enough to conduct 10,000 Covid-19 tests.”
“The kits will help to maintain testing capacity and contain the spread of the virus,” he added.
While praising the German government for financing the kits, Mladenov said that 14,000 UK-funded swabs were delivered by the organisation.
“The UN continues to assist by supplying critical Covid-19 supplies to Gaza,” he stated.
